The CPU powering this laptop is the Intel Pentium P6100.  This is a dual-core processor built on Intel’s Westmere microarchitecture.  It has 3MB of L3 cache and each one runs at 2GHz.  This CPU is built using a 32nm process and only uses 35W. This laptop comes with 3GB DDR3 memory and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB.  That’s sufficient memory for doing some multi-tasking.

The screen is a 15.6″ TFT-LCD high-definition widescreen display with Toshiba TruBrite technology and a resolution of 1366×768.  That gives the display a 16:9 aspect ratio and native support for 720p HD content.  The screen is driven by Intel HD graphics which features 64-1275MB dynamically allocated shared video memory. You probably wouldn’t want to play the latest games on this machine.

For storage you get a mid-size 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at a lowly 5400RPM.   The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support.  The media reader slot supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, miniSD and MultiMediaCard formats for downloading files from your digital camera or other device.

To get connected you get the very basic options with this laptop.  A 10/100 Ethernet LAN port accessible through a standard RJ-45 connector provides the wired network connection.  On the wireless side of things you can use the built-in 802.11 b/g/n adapter.

External ports are very basic and include 2 high-speed USB 2.o ports, 1 VGA port, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone out port.  This Satellite comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Toshiba Crapware, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Microsoft Live Essentials and more.

The laptop measures 11″x15.1″x 1.1″/1.5″ and weighs 5.5 pounds. The 6 cell (48Wh) Lithium Ion battery pack can provide up to 4.25 hours of unplugged power.  Otherwise, you can use the included 65W auto-sensing AC adapter that weighs around a half a pound.

You can find the Toshiba Satellite C655-S5119 for around $470.
