80% Toshiba Satellite C855-S5231 15.6-inch
Source: Comp Reviews English
For consumers looking at a very low cost laptop for basic computing needs, the Toshiba Satellite C855 is surprisingly affordable at a good deal less than $400. It may not have as high of performance or as much storage as some of the competition, but it makes up for this by having some good battery life along with a USB 3.0 port for better high speed external storage expansion.

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.


2.4 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.
