Performance is certainly this system’s strong point. Though the slow hard drive drags the package down a bit, this system is fast in the demanding workloads that are most likely to strain a laptop’s resources. This computer can handle anything the average consumer will ask of it, and it does so without straining the buyer’s wallet.

Unlike our Editors’ Choice, the Asus U46E-BAL5, the Toshiba Satellite P755-S5390 isn’t intricately appointed in every area: You won’t find on it the Asus U46E-BAL5’s larger hard drive, more RAM, WiMAX, remarkable longevity when not plugged in, or lower price. So we have to let the Asus U46E-BAL5 retain its edge, despite the P755-S5390’s superior performance on all our productivity tests. Even so, the P755-S5390 stands out from the mainstream crowd and is absolutely worth considering if you have a lot of work to do—and quickly.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.

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.
