15.6 inch AMD processor Toshiba Satellite C55D-A5344 is a budget, affordable, performance for everyday use but good quality laptop. It is not for gamers, engineers or multimedia editors and you probably wouldn't expect it to be at its price.

This is a Toshiba after all and you know what you are getting with this world renowned brand. We are talking about one of the lowest cost 15.6 inch laptops in the market here, so keep that in mind when you are checking out the specs and features.

AMD Kabini E1-2100 processor at accelerated 1.0 GHz speed along with 4 GB DIMM 1333 MHz DDR3 SDRAM is good for browsing the web, chatting on Skype, word processing, playing less demanding games and being able to run a few programs and browsers at the same time. If you are a student, stay-at-home mum or a casual user this entry level Toshiba will be more than enough for you..

Same with the 500 GB 5400 rpm SATA Hard Drive, it will be more than enough for storing all your files. Windows 8 (64 bit version) operating system comes pre-installed on the Toshiba and you will enjoy it more than other operating systems after a max of a couple of days of getting used to period. Toshiba generally makes energy efficient computers and this is the case with the C55D-A5344 too- the battery life is a bit over 5 hours in normal use.

Toshiba Satellite C55D-A5344 Review
It is a great student computer but not for students that love playing the latest 3D games. It has an integrated AMD Radeon HD 8210 graphics card that is suitable for general use, just not for gaming and multimedia editing.

Having said that, the picture quality is well above average on its 15.6 inch diagonal Trubrite display with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. Audio from built-in stereo speakers equipped with DTS Sound is also better than what you'd expect from such an affordable laptop.

Black Toshiba Satellite C55D weighs 5.3lbs and is 1.31 inch thick. It has a soft and sensitive full qwerty keyboard with 10-key numeric keypad as well as a DVD SuperMulti drive supporting 11 formats, 802.11bgn wifi wireless, USB 2.0 Ports x 2, USB 3.0 Port x 1, Audio-out Port x 1, an HDMI port to connect to a big-screen TV.

Conclusion: If you are not looking for an extremely powerful laptop to play 3D games, run Autocad, edit memory-intensive multimedia, Toshiba Satellite C55D-A5344 may well be the one for you. It looks good, feels solid- should last you a few years and performs well in everyday tasks. Now offered at a great price on so please go ahead and check it out.
