Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L755-S5258
The L755 fits the bill for a basic home computer but is uninspiring and ultimately tough to recommend because of its relatively high price. Its quality and feature set are as expected for a budget notebook and nothing more. The L755's highlights include a good keyboard and a decent set of speakers; it runs cool as well. It is fast enough for everything except 3D games. The only aspect of the L755 I truly didn't like was the glossy plastic; every visible inch of the notebook is covered. It may look good on a display shelf but fails the real world practicality test; cleaning it is a full-time job. There's a distinct lack of advanced ports (no USB 3.0); the touchpad buttons are also too noisy; lastly its 3.5-hour battery life is less than expected (we were looking for at least an hour more).

Don't let the Toshiba Satellite L755-S5258's low price fool you: This lapdop is a solid performer. Unfortunately, the rest of the design is not as solid--the notebook looks and feels cheap, the Function key, at least on our test unit, wouldn't work, and the trackpad is extremely small. All Toshiba has to do is make sure its parts are working and enlarge the trackpad (which should be easy--they had enough room for a number pad, after all), and the Satellite L755-S5258 would be an excellent budget machine.
