Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L355-S7915

At $348, this 17-inch notebook performs surprisingly well at an unbeatable value. The Toshiba L355 (S7915) isn’t sexy, and we wish it had a webcam, but at $348 this notebook offers good-enough performance for people with simple computing needs who also want a big screen. Given the fact that Toshiba offers better specs for about $250 less than the competition, we don’t expect supplies of this desktop replacement system to last very long.

Available exclusively at Wal-Mart, Toshiba’s Satellite L355-S7915 is a bargain hunter’s dream machine. This 17-inch notebook won’t dazzle you with performance, and it lacks more than a few of the features found on most mainstream laptops. The big story here is the price: For an incredibly low $348, you get a big-screen notebook that will handle the basics and give you more than two hours of unplugged computing time. A 17-inch desktop-replacement laptop for the cost of a low-end netbook, this is an exceptional value—if you can live with bare-minimum performance and a lean feature set.

Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M.

It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.
900: Single core processor based on the Penryn core but many advanced features are deactivated. Due to the missing Speedstep, the CPU may lead to a lower battery runtime.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
