Battery life is very strong and beats the average and many other competitors in this category. Expect to get between 4-5 hours with this laptop.

For a budget laptop, this is a pretty good performer. It did well in speed tests and impressed in integrated graphics and battery performance. What it lacks, though, is a good keyboard and mouse button experience, which is what you would get with the HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl and Acer Aspire AS5742-6475—for $50 to $100 less.

With numerous laptops spread across its L, C, A, M, T, E, W, and R series, Toshiba may not run out of new product lines until it runs out of letters. Though not particularly inspiring, the basic 15-inch Toshiba Satellite L655 has a current-gen CPU and can be found for around $600, making it a worthwhile budget choice.

Here's a case where it's definitely worth paying a little bit extra to get Intel inside. The $620 Satellite L655 is faster, offers better graphics performance, and runs quieter than its AMD counterpart (which costs $598 from Walmart). Plus, the L655 lasts nearly two hours longer on a charge. To us, that's worth the extra 20 bucks. For $70 less, both the HP G6x and the Samsung RV511 are very good options, and we especially like the Samsung for its sleeker design. But the Toshiba offers much better graphics performance, giving you more bang for your buck. The Satellite L655 is a winner in our book.
