Potential buyers of the $440-dollar Toshiba Satellite C855-S5115 15.6-inch Windows 8 laptop have to know one important thing. The Gateway NE56R49U with a very similar processor and the same other main components is currently selling for $90 less, which is a huge amount of money for those buying budget notebooks.
The Intel Core i3-3120M dual-core at 2.5GHz, included in the Toshiba C855-S5115, is only slightly faster than the i3-3110M at 2.4GHz. Both processors offer exceptional performance in terms of daily routine tasks, such as Internet browsing and office applications. It’s also good for multimedia playback due to native 1080p video playback support of the processor and you can do also media creation and conversion at a decent speed. Playing the latest 3D games at pleasant frame rates is pretty much out of question, because there’s no dedicated graphics in the C855-S5115.
The notebook has 4GB of RAM memory, a 500GB hard disk, and a DVD burner. The display resolution is 1366×768 pixels, which is a standard for affordable 15.6-inch laptops, while the included battery is also a standard-capacity one. It’s a six-cell unit, but there’s no info on battery life for this model.
All of the specs you can find listed below. Also worth mentioning are the 720p webcam, stereo speakers, four USBs (with 3.0 speed on one of them), HDMI, and the memory card reader.
On the attached images you can see how the chassis of the C855-S5115 looks like, as well as detailed texture on the palm-rests and lid. The case is wholly made of plastics and has a tile-style keyboard with large keys in the center of it.
