LaptopMag has reviewed the Toshiba Satellite C655D (S5130) laptop. The 15.6-inch laptop is powered by an AMD Fusion processor that promises a better performance and a long battery life. The Toshiba Satellite C655D (S5130) has a 1.5GHz AMD E-240 processor, the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) operating system, a 3GB RAM, a 250GB 5,400rpm HDD and a 1366×768 resolution LCD display. Here is the verdict:
It helps to think of the Toshiba Satellite C655D more as a big netbook than a well-rounded mainstream notebook. At $398 (currently $378 at Walmart), it costs the same as many of those higher-end 10-inch systems, yet it offers a much larger screen and better graphics. Still, consumers must temper their expectations. Even though it has a 15-inch screen, you can’t expect it to perform like similarly sized notebooks that cost $150 more. But if you’re looking for a very basic laptop and a 10-inch screen is too small for you, the C655D is a pretty good deal.
