If you like the look of this notebook, you should look for the lower spec’d and better priced versions of the Toshiba Satellite L650 which can be found at Toshiba.com and on Amazon for under $500. These notebooks don’t have quad-core processors, but look to offer a better value.

Thanks to its bright red chassis, the Toshiba Satellite L655-S5161RDX is sure to be an attention grabber from a design standpoint. It also performed 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-$100 less.

The Toshiba Satellite L655D is a good-looking laptop with a comfortable keyboard, good display, and some nice included software. While it handled web surfing, streaming video, and other everyday tasks just fine, its noisy fan was very distracting. Plus, at $649, the price is a bit high for just "okay" performance. The more stylish Samsung RF510 has a more powerful Core i5 processor and discrete graphics card, and is available online for the same price. If all you need is basic performance and are looking to save some cash, the MSI CR650, which lasts longer on a charge, is a better deal for $499. Ultimately, the Satellite L655D is a tough sell.

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


P960: Slow clocked quad core CPU for mid size laptops (due to the 25 W TDP). Single threaded applications and games suffer from the low core speed.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
