Toshiba Satellite L655D-S5110 Laptop with AMD Phenom II Review

This laptop is powered by the AMD Phenom II processor (model P940).  This is a 64-bit, quad-core CPU running at 1.7GHz.  It has 2MB of L2 cache uses only 25W of power.  This systems comes installed with 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 memory with the capability of expanding to 8GB.

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 the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics card.  This has 256MB of dedicated memory and can support up to 1917MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory.  Shared memory slows your system down during graphically intensive processes like games.

For storage you get a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  That’s a half a terabyte of storage and should be plenty of space for all your music, movies, apps and more.  For an optical drive you get a Blu-ray Disc® ROM and DVD SuperMulti drive with Labelflash® supporting 12 formats.  You can use Labelflash media to burn high quality labels directly to disc.  The memory card reader supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Memory Stick™, Memory Stick  PRO™, and Multi Media Card formats.

For networking you get a 10/100 wired Ethernet LAN adapter, and a 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi wireless networking adapter. It’d be nice to have Gigabit on this laptop, but most likely you’ll be using the Wi-Fi anyway.  One thing you can use it for is to video chat with the built in webcam and microphone.

External ports include 1 RGB port for connecting an external monitor, 1 HDMI port for connecting to your HDTV, Microphone input with Toshiba Sleep and Music, headphone out, 3 USB v2.0 ports (2 USB +1 eSATA/USB combo with USB sleep and charge), and the RJ-45 LAN port for your wired networking connection.  You also get a slot for a security lock.

This Toshiba comes loaded with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Toshiba CrapWare, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Corel Label@Once, Google Toolbar, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer 8.

The laptop measures 14.96″ x 9.84″ x 1.10″/1.49″ and weighs 5.48 lbs.  It comes with a 6 cell (48Wh) Lithium Ion battery pack.  You also get a 65W AC power adapter that weighs 0.55 lbs.
