Fast and efficient 4th generation Intel Core i3-2348M 2.3 GHz processor and 4GB RAM expandable to 16GB.

500GB 5400RPM Serial ATA hard drive- lots of space to save your files, music, photos, videos and more.

Realistic images, vivid colors on 15.6" HD True Brite LED Backlit Display with a screen resolution of 1366 x 768p. We're actually impressed with the colors and graphics.

Very good enhanced audio quality through stereo speakers with DTS SoundTM.

Well designed and comfortable keyboard that allows smooth and quick typing with a sensitive and responsive large touchpad with multitouch and a 10 key numeric keypad. DVD drive is on the left.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64- bit. Great if you don't like Windows 8 or don't want to spend time or effort to learn Windows 8.

2 USB 2.0 ports and 1 USB 3.0 port (very fast transfer speed) to share files easily and quickly, HDMI port to connect to larger screens, built-in Wi-Fi, SuperMulti DVD drive that supports 11 formats, Media card reader (to transfer files from your camera, MP3, smartphone and camcorder), HD Webcam, 10/100 Ethernet LAN, RGB port.

Approximately 4 hours battery life in normal use, so pretty decent for the price.

5.4 pound weight- not too heavy not too light- quite portable.

Satin black color in Trax Horizon texture. Slender and sexy looking.

Very affordable for what you get.

Summary: Toshiba is one of the greatest electronics brands in the world and its laptops are one of the best quality build you can get. And the Toshiba Satellite C55-A5245 is both nice looking, fast and functional for what it is created. It comes with Windows 7- which is good for those that dislike or can't get used to Windows 8. Keyboard, touchpad, sound and image quality are probably as good as you can get in this class of laptops.
