Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5126

Toshiba Satellite C655D AMD E-240 Fusion APU Notebook Review
Source: PC Perspective English
Yes, the AMD E-240 is slow. But this laptop, the Toshiba Satellite C655, is a nice laptop for the price - and this laptop only exists because AMD has finally produced a competent Atom competitor. The 15.6” display, with its correspondingly large keyboard, is more pleasant to use than your typical 10.1” or 11.6” netbook. If you’re looking for a laptop, but your budget is slim, the Toshiba Satellite C655 should be on your short list.

There is a lot to consider when looking at a machine like the Toshiba C655D using the AMD E-240 APU including the performance, usability and battery life. We have already shown a basic look at performance and as you should expect with a single-core variant of the Zacate platform, the speed of the machine doesn't quite live up to the expectations we had. Considering we are using a 15.6-in screen with room for a large-ish battery, that is disappointing. However, performance compared to most of the Atom-based netbooks/notebooks will likely paint this Toshiba in a better light.

AMD Radeon HD 6310: Integrated graphics card in the Zacate netbook processors (e.g. E-350 and E-240) featuring an UVD3 video decoder and no dedicated memory.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
