Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5300 now available

Budget 15.6-inch Fusion notebook now available for $270

Toshiba has made available a budget full-sized notebook as part of the Satellite series just in time for the Thanksgiving holidays.

Called the Satellite C655D-S5300, the Windows 7 notebook offers a 15.6-inch screen with a 1366x768 resolution, Fusion E-300 processor with integrated Radeon HD 6310 GPU, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, DVD drive and webcam. Connectivity options are a bit limited at only 2x USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, wireless-n and VGA-out.

Overall, the notebook weighs in at a hefty 5.5 pounds (2.49kg) and is about 1.5 inches (3.81cm) thick. Battery life is expected to last 5 hours and 56 minutes, a little more than usual for budget 15.6-inch notebooks due to the low power AMD Fusion core.

The Satellite C655D should be optimal for light users needing quick access to web browsing, word processing and email. The notebook is now on sale for $270 at Best Buy.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
