Powering this laptop is the AMD V-Series processor (model: V120). This is a single-core, 64-bit CPU running at 2.2GHz.  It has 512KB of L2 cache and uses 25W. This laptop comes installed with 2GB of DDR3 memory and can take a maximum of 8GB.

The display is a 15.6″ widescreen TruBrite TFT LCD display with a resolution of 1366×768. That gives it a 16:9 aspect ratio and native support for 720p content. The screen is driven by ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics which provides 256MB-893MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. This is not a powerful system, so don’t expect to play many games at high graphics settings.

For storage you get a mid-sized 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) drive rotating at 5400RPM. The optical drive is a DVD SuperMulti  drive with Labelflash (does anyone ever use Labelflash?).  The card reader supports  Secure Digital, Memory Stick™ , Secure Digital, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, and Multi Media Card formats.

For networking you get a triple play of 10/100 wired Ethernet through the RJ-45 port. Wi-Fi wireless networking with a 802.11 b/g/n adapter. Finally, if you want to feel like a caveman you can use the built-in modem. You can use the networking to do some video chatting with your webcam and microphone.

External ports on this laptop include 1 RGB port for connecting an external monitor, 1 microphone input, 1 headphone output, 2 USB 2.0 ports.  No HDMI port.

The laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Other software includes Microsoft Works 9, Corel Label@Once, Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 Edition (60-day trial), Intuit Quickbooks Simple Start Online, Norton Internet Security 2010 (30 day subscription) and tons of Toshiba crapware.

The laptop measures 15.1″x11.0″x1.1″/1.5″ and weighs 5.51 pounds.  The 6-cell Lithium ion battery pack provides up to 3 hours and 24 minutes  of unplugged power. Overall this is not a very attractive laptop as far as specs are concerned.

You can find the Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5043 laptop for around $450.
