Toshiba Satellite C655-S5542 Review

Toshiba Satellite C655-S5542 is powered by Intel’s Celeron B815 is a 1.6GHz dual-core CPU without Turbo Boost or Hyper-Threading. Given its pairing with only 3GB of memory, we expected leisurely performance, but the Toshiba proved tolerable for Web and office productivity work—and even completed our multimedia benchmark tests a few seconds quicker than the Acer Aspire 5349-2635, which has the same processor with 4GB of memory.

Toshiba preloads the Satellite C655-S5542 with 320GB, 5,400rpm hard drive with a 30-day trial of Norton Internet Security, Google Chrome, a handy Corel CD/DVD label and jewel case insert printing utility, and 20-odd Toshiba-brand utilities ranging from the usual (a recovery media creator, face recognition for the webcam) to the intriguing (a thumbnail timeline view of accessed files).

The C655-S5542 (Black) typically costs between $399.83 – $443.96.
