Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X
The value equation for laptops is changing. Case in point: while the Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X only costs $799, somehow it just doesn't feel like a great bargain anymore. While the $799 Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X is an affordably priced Blu-ray laptop with a next-gen Intel Core i3 processor, there are other options out there that offer better design or performance for the same money.

When you're laptop-shopping, sometimes it seems as though the virtual shelves have been filled with machines zapped there by a duplicator ray. And this is especially true when you're browsing through the well-stocked aisles of mainstream notebooks. This Satellite has a dull design, but its above-average battery life and performance make it a good 15.6-inch laptop option for its $699 price.
