Ice silver in brushed aluminium Toshiba Satellite S55-A5359, like other notebooks in the S50 group, is an all rounder multi-purpose personal computer providing great performance, beautiful looks, excellent multitasking and Windows 7 operating system.

For performance you have the Intel Core i7 4700MQ at 2.4 GHz, 8 GB DIMM RAM, 1 TB SATA 5400 rpm Hard Drive.. Windows 7 Professional comes pre-installed and the package includes Windows 8.1 Pro installation DVDs if you choose to install it. 15.6 inch widescreen LED-backlit Display with 1366x768 pixels maximum screen resolution and Mobile Intel HD graphics, Harmon Kardon speakers and DTS Studio Sound are great for HD entertainment and most games.

Premium raised tile keyboard is backlit for working comfortably in dim light or dark and has a 10-key numeric keypad for easier entry of data. The integrated HD webcam is great quality- will enable smooth Skype chats with friends and family. Toshiba Satellite's 6-cell lion battery will give you almost 4 hours of battery life, which is not great but also not bad considering the level of performance and power you're getting from this system.

Toshiba Satellite S55-A5359 Review
Toshiba Satellite weighs just 5.1 pounds- below the average for 15.6 inch laptops and s 1 inch thick- slimmer than normal. You have the 802.11bgn wireless, 2 x USB 2.0 Ports, 1 x USB 3.0 Port with sleep and charge function, DVD SuperMulti drive with 11 formats, Memory Card Reader, 10/100/1000 Network and Slot for Security Lock.

Conclusion: Toshiba Satellite S55-A5359 is a great PC with a powerful top of the line quad core i7 processor, video and sound quality, ample storage space, large RAM- memory for multitasking, stylish and slim appearance. If you ask me what's not so good about it, I'd say not having Bluetooth- which can be purchased with a couple of dollars, battery life is just under 4 hours- could be longer but fine for its performance level. But it is well worth the money overall, ideal for school, work and everyday use for entertainment at home.
