Classy one-man show. The website for the Toshiba Satellite P855-107 states the notebook is a “Powerful and attractive multimedia entertainment” device. This claim arouses our curiosity and makes us wonder if this is an empty promise or if Toshiba can truly deliver on its claim. In this review, we will find out.

Toshiba’s P855 is a beautifully designed entry into the mainstream segment. It’s certainly one of the better-looking PCs available and, unlike similarly shiny competitors, the finish on this laptop is easy to live with. You can throw your microfiber rag in the trash. Beauty aside, there are some downsides of note. Battery life results were disappointing, to say the least, and the laptop’s more expensive configurations could really use a 1600 x 900 or 1080p display option.

The Toshiba Satellite P855 is one of a new line-up of similarly designed laptops, but is the only one to feature a 15.6-inch HD autostereoscopic screen. It will be available in Q2 in the UK, and will cost more than the non-3D P850 - itself weighing in at £599 - but not by much, we expect.

The Toshiba Satellite P855 isn’t a big step forward in any respect, but is a respectable mid/high-end laptop. It uses a fairly good-looking aluminium-coated body, has decent connectivity and starts at a reasonable £599, sans 3D. We’re not convinced the glasses-free 3D screen is worth the extra outlay, feeling a little gimmicky, but we’ll be back with the full verdict in our review.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M: Middle class graphics card of the 600M series based on the 28nm GK107 chip (Kepler architecture).

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


3610QM:

An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.95 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.
