This laptop is powered by the AMD Athlon II p340 CPU.  This is a 64-bit, dual-core processor running at 2.2GHz.  This CPU has 1MB of L2 cache and uses only 25W. It’s part of AMD Vision Technology line up. This laptop comes with 3GB DDR3 memory and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB.

The screen is a 15.6” diagonal widescreen TruBrite® TFT LCD display at 1366 x 768 native resolution. That’s native support for 720p HD content, and a 16:9 aspect ratio.  The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics chip.  This has 256MB of dedicated memory and can support up to 1405MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory.  Shared memory slows your system down during graphically intensive processes like games.

For storage you get a 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  Not the biggest or fastest of laptop drives you’ll find today.  The optical drive is a DVD SuperMulti drive which supports up to 11 different formats.  The media reader slot supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Mini SD Card, and Multi Media Card formats.

For networking you can use the built-in 10/100 Ethernet port using the RJ-45 port. For wireless you get an integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter for all your unplugged web needs. This laptop does not have support for Bluetooth.

External ports on this machine include an RGB monitor port, 1 microphone, 1 headphone, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and a slot for a security lock.   Other features include built-in stereo speakers, a TouchPad pointing device with multi-touch control and a standard US keyboard with 10-key.  Of course, don’t forget the integrated Webcam and microphone for all your video chatting needs.

For an operating system you get Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Microsoft Works 9, Windows Media Player 12, Acrobat Reader, Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 Edition (60-day trial), Norton Internet Security 2010 (30 day trial subscription, Intuit Quickbooks Simple Start Online, and Skype.  Plus plenty of other crapware from Toshiba.

The laptop measures 15.1″x11,0″x1.10″/1.50″ and weighs 5.51 pounds.  The 6-cell lithium ion (48Wh) battery provides up to 3.4 hours of unplugged power. You also get a 65W auto-sensing AC adapter for when your battery runs out. It weighs about half a pound.

You can find the Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5084 laptop for around $400.
