The Intel inside this laptop is the Celeron (model 900).  This is a single core processor running at 2.2GHz.  The CPU has an 800MHz front-side bus and 1MB of L2 cache.  It’s a pretty slow processor by today’s standards.  This isn’t the computer you want for gaming. This system comes with 2GB of DDR3 Dual-Channel SDRAM and can take a maximum of 4GB.

The screen is a 15.6” diagonal widescreen TruBrite® TFT LCD display with a resolution of  1366 x 768. This screen supports 720p HD content natively.  The display is driven by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M, which uses shared video memory (up to 1756MB allocated from the system memory). The card supports Microsoft DirectX 10 for gaming though with shared memory you probably won’t get great performance on the latest ones.

For storage you get a smallish 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  The optical drive is a DVD SuperMulti drive supporting 11 formats.  Since you’ve got a small hard drive you may want to use the memory card reader slot, which supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Mini SD Card, and Multi Media Card formats, for some extra storage space.

For networking you get a very basic set of two options.  First, you can use the integrated 10/100 Ethernet adapter accessible through the RJ-45 connector for a wired Internet connection.  Secondly, you can use the standard Wi-Fi wireless 802.11 b/g/n adapter for unfettered access to the web. This laptop does not have an integrated webcam.

External ports are limited, but include 1 RGB port for connecting an external monitor, 2 USB v2.0 ports, 1 microphone in and 1 headphone out.  You also get a slot for a security lock.

This laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Toshiba Disc Creator, Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Google Chrome, Microsoft Office Starter 2010 and Norton Internet Security 2011 (30-day trial subscription).

This laptop measures 15.1″x11.0″x1.1″/1.5″ and weighs 5.5 pounds.  The 6-cell Lithium ion battery pack can provide up to 4 hours and 35 minutes of unplugged power.  The included 65W autosensing AC adapter can provide power as long as you pay your electric bill.

You can find the Toshiba Satellite C655-S5082 for around $350.
