Priced just under $500, the Toshiba Satellite L655-S5096 is more physically attractive than it is an outstanding performer, but if you don't need to do anything too taxing there's nothing wrong with this sleek-looking laptop.

The 15.6-inch Satellite L650 is part of Toshiba's 'everyday computing' range. In other words, it's a jack of all trades that should appeal to just about everybody. Our review model, the Satellite L650-12Q, uses an Intel Core i5-430M CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5145 GPU. It costs a quite reasonable £550 or thereabouts. The version of the Toshiba Satellite L650 that we reviewed, the L650-12Q, is a fabulous budget laptop. Its battery life is disappointing, but it will cope well with just about anything asked of it.

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.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
