Toshiba Satellite C55T-A5287 is a good entry level notebook with a Touch Screen, an i3 processor and a 6GB memory. It is great for your daily computing needs at school, work or home. You also know what you're getting with Toshiba- a solid laptop that will last you at least for a few years.

Intel Core i3-2348M processor at 2.3GHz speed is a Sandy Bridge based dual core processor that can handle four threads at once thanks to hyperthreading. 6GB DDR3 SDRAM- which is upgradable to 16GB is a bit more than what you can get at what this computer is priced at. So you are covered for efficient and smooth multitasking too. Storage-wise 500GB SATA is pretty much standard for similar models but it is enough space to put all your files.

15.6" widescreen HD TruBrite LED Backlit Touch Screen display powered by Intel HD Graphics at 1366x768 pixel resolution and 16:9 cinematic ratio supports 720p content. You will have fun watching videos and playing games on it. Audio through DTS sound and built-in speakers is quite all right too. Operating system is the latest Windows 8, which may take a little time to get used to and this time will be shorter on this Toshiba as it comes with a responsive Touch Screen. Keyboard is nice with a 10 key numeric keypad.

Toshiba Satellite C55t-A5287 Review
Satin Black in Trax Horizon Toshiba weighs 5.4lbs. In terms of connectivity, it comes with 2 x USB 2.0 ports and 1 x USB 3.0 port for quicker data transfers. DVD-SuperMulti drive (+/-R double layer), HDMI port to connect to larger screens like your HDTV, HD webcam, memory card reader, RGB port, 10/100 Ethernet LAN and 802.11b/g/n wireless.

Conclusion: Toshiba laptops are Energy Star Qualified, durable and made to run smoothly. Toshiba Satellite C55T-A5287 performs very well at basic to mid-level tasks but not the latest 3D games or memory requiring heavy multi-media editing. Touch screen and Windows 8 are a good match. 6GB RAM, USB 3.0 port, HDMI port, numeric keypad are its other stronger points. We trust the Toshiba quality and think the C55T is a good buy if you don't intend to spend heaps more for better specs. Go ahead and check it out on Amazon for current prices.
