Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P755-S5270
Priced right around $700 for this build, the Toshiba Satellite P755 is a great mid-range machine for the money. The laptop was able to handle complex assignments in Adobe Lightroom with ease, and at 5.44 pounds wasn’t too heavy to lug around in a messenger bag. If you are looking for a laptop, meaning not an Ultrabook or a desktop replacement, the P755 is well worth considering.

The Toshiba Satellite P755 is an impressive all-purpose laptop, if you can get past the less-than-impressive design. The plastic exterior is nice for a cheaper, less specced-out machine, but it doesn't really convey "3D multimedia powerhouse." Still, if you're looking for a nice multimedia and casual-gaming laptop, the P755 performs solidly.

You'll probably want to play games with this unit, which I'm happy to say the unit has no problems with in the games I tried out. Left 4 Dead 2 and Unreal Tournament 3, some of the most graphically intensive multiplayer games popular currently, had no problem at all running at max settings on the machine at its native resolution, and it was able to handle the single player Crysis similarly as well. The graphics card is DirectX 11 capable, and should run anything new coming out for the foreseeable future. The LCD seems responsive enough to play directly on, too, so there shouldn’t be a lot of ghosting when gaming. Altogether, the machine seems a powerful enough choice to handle most anything currently, for less than $1000.
