Toshiba Satellite C55DT-B5205

Toshiba Satellite C55DT-B5205 is an affordable laptop that comes with a touchscreen. It features a quad-core AMD A8-6410 with a base frequency of 1.8 GHz, supported by Turbo Core up to 2.4 GHz. The graphics controller is Radeon R5. A 15.6-inch display with HD 1366 x 768 pixels resolution supports multi-touch input, makes it easy to use the user interface of Windows 8.1. The new Satellite C series model, which is still based on the previous gen (C50-B), has 4GB of DDR3L memory but users can’t upgrade the memory. Therefore, it’s very hard to run multiple demanding applications at once without lag. For storage, it’s equipped with a 500GB HDD running at 5400RPM.

This product has a standard keyboard for typing which is equipped with 10-key numpad. Unlike the latest C50 series, the keyboard is not island-style. A touchpad pointing device has a pair of pick buttons. All essential ports can be found on this laptop. There are a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI output port, an RGB port, an RJ45 port, and a headphone / microphone combo jack. It also provides important wireless connectivity features like Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n. A DVD SuperMulti is located on the left side. With a thickness of 1.05”, it also has a 4-cell 45Wh Lithium-ion battery, a built-in web camera, stereo speakers, and a memory card reader.

Dell has an alternative – it’s also a touchscreen laptop with the same storage and memory, but you can upgrade the memory up to 8GB. However, it’s powered by AMD A6-6310 which is somewhat slower than the A8.
