Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L55t-A5290
Source: Laptop Mag Archive.org version
The 15.6-inch Toshiba Satellite L55t-A5290 ($713 at Staples) features a touch-screen display, loud audio, and a fantastic keyboard and clickpad. However, the design on this laptop looks dated, and you'll have to settle for a third-generation Intel CPU. The $699 Acer Aspire M5 is a better deal because it offers an aluminum lid and deck, Intel's new Haswell architecture, and nearly double the battery life.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
