Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite C55D-A-13U

60% Toshiba Satellite C55D-A-13U review: large-screen budget laptop perfect for use at home
Source: PC Advisor English
The C55D is clearly an entry-level laptop that offers basic levels of performance and image quality. Battery life was surprisingly good, and the ability to store plenty of music and video on its terabyte hard disk means that it could work as a low-cost entertainment system around the home or in the garden when the summer arrives.
