Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite C55DT-C5245
Source: PC Mag
The Toshiba Satellite C55DT-C5245 is a relatively inexpensive and well-equipped desktop-replacement laptop. It has great performance for its category, loads of storage space, and a large touch screen. It should appeal to you if you're on a modest budget and looking for a simple, everyday system. The Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series Non-Touch holds on to its Editors' Choice for entry-level desktop-replacement laptops, however, due to its larger, higher-resolution screen and less bloatware, at a list price that's about $30 less.

All told, the Toshiba Satellite C55D-C5245 is a rather specialized illustration of the adage that you get what you pay for. It's short on luxuries, unless you count the Cortana key (and we suggest you use Windows+C instead). Its keyboard feel is disappointing. It's no match for most laptops in the $700 to $1,000 range.
