Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P755-113

The build quality and keyboard on the Toshiba Satellite P755 don't impress, but there's a powerful processor at its heart and the graphics card will tackle all but the most demanding games. If you're looking for a gaming machine that you can feasibly carry around -- and can ignore the above issues -- the P755 might be worth a look.

Finally there’s a larger complaint to consider. The battery life of 1 hour, 44 minutes is paltry. But when it died, the P755 indicated it had over an hour of running time left. That adds up to a lot of troubling stuff to think about when it comes time to decide whether to invest in this laptop. My hunch is that its issues won’t extend to every Satellite, which means that $880 amounts to a big roll of the dice.

At £999, this Toshiba laptop has a lot going for it, but there still isn't an obvious champion of this price point.

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.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
