The Toshiba Satellite C55-A5310 is one of the most popular laptop models on the market, because it’s a part of Best Buy’s well promoted laptop bundle. For $520, shoppers can get the C55-A5310, Office Home & Student 2013 software suite, Titanium Internet Security 2014 3-user 6-month subscription, a Targus sleeve, Logitech M185 wireless optical mouse, and 8GB flash drive. The notebook itself is a classic 15.6-incher. It’s based on an 3rd Generation (2012) Intel Core i3 processor, so it’s not as power efficient as the latest 4th Gen parts, but it’s certainly a good CPU for routine web and office tasks and multimedia playback. Toshiba hasn’t economized on RAM and storage space, since they’ve included 6GB and 750GB respectively, up from usual 4GB and 500GB. When you add a built-in DVD burner and a full array of networking and connectivity options to the mix, it’s clear the laptop and bundle are a great shopping deal. The screen resolution is low 1366×768 and the chassis has a very simple and somewhat boring design, but these are unwritten standards for the budget laptop category.

    This laptop is a good deal. You can opt out of the trials. Battery lasts me 7.5 hours, even though Toshiba rates it at 4.5. Ram goes to 16 gb, is very upgradeable. Solidly built.
