Toshiba's Satellite L855D-S5242 uses the update AMD APU with its Radeon HD 7640G integrated graphics which does still outperform even the new Intel HD graphics in a large number of cases. This combined with the above average hard drive and memory sizes will really appeal to those on a budget but needing to run a lot of applications simultaneously.
