Toshiba Satellite C55-B5240X Review

Not everyone needs a top-notch laptop with an i7 processor and 8 GB of RAM. Some people just need a good computer that can surf the web, watch videos and edit documents. This is where the Toshiba Satellite C55-B5240X comes in. It is an inexpensive laptop that does those things very well.

This model has a 1 TB hard drive which is more than enough for most users to store their documents, pictures and music. The Intel Celeron N2840 processor is fairly fast, though it may not be powerful enough for modern games. It has 4 GB of RAM, which is enough for most users. The display is a roomy 15.6" diagonal, HD TruBrite widescreen that is perfect for working, watching, creating and more. The keyboard is designed with contoured keys in a frameless style that minimizes key bounce and the touchpad is large and responsive.

The Windows 10 experience is built in, with Cortana your truly personal digital assistant and Microsoft Edge for a better, faster browser. It has the apps you know and love, plus new features to help you be more productive.

The included speakers are pretty good for laptops. They have been tuned by audiophiles at Skullcandy and DTS to provide peak performance for those who enjoy listening to their music or podcasts. It also has an HDMI output, high-speed Wireless-N connectivity and two USB ports for easy connectivity to printers, projectors or external drives.
