Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Toshiba Satellite C855 is a solid-but-uninspiring laptop. Its design is inoffensive but unlikely to excite and build quality is a little patchy. What turns us off the most, though, is the mediocre keyboard. The C855 has enough power for most casual tasks, but it's not the best if you're going to be doing a lot of typing.

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.

The Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5104 is an incredibly low-priced 15-inch laptop that performs like an incredibly low-priced laptop. The Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5104 is a budget-class 15-inch laptop offering sluggish performance and a stingy feature set, but it'll give you five plus hours of unplugged computing.

At $270, the Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5104 is a decent deal, but it's far from a great deal. Its AMD E-300 processor can't match the performance of similarly priced Intel-based laptops, and it comes up way short in terms of features. If you need a cheap laptop for Web browsing, emailing, and using Facebook, it will fit the bill, However, our Editors' Choice, the Dell Inspiron 15 (I15RV-6190BLK), offers better performance and more features for right around the same price.

Toshiba reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Radeon HD 7610M: Based on the same chip as the Radeon HD 6630M but with slower clock rates and only 5 instead of the 6 SIMD blocks = 400 shader.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

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

Intel HD Graphics 2000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The 2000  is the slower, internally GT1 called, version with 6 Execution Units (EUs).

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

AMD Radeon HD 7340: Integrated processor graphics card in the 2nd generation of Zacate APUs (e.g., E2-1800). Due to Turbo Core, the graphics card can clock from 523 to 680 MHz and is based on the same core as the Radeon HD 6320 (1. generation Zacate).

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.

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.


2.3 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

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.


65%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
