The Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300 is a new addition to the Budget Laptop series of Toshiba which mostly are powered by a Celeron processor and are aimed at students or individuals who cant pay for a premium machine or just want to get some basic work done. This laptop also has an Intel Celeron 1037U dual-core, 1.80 GHz Processor which is backed by 4GB of ram which is pretty standard for Budget laptops. The laptop uses a 500GB 5400RPM SATA hard drive to store user data which is also a standard nowadays in most budget machines.
The Satellite C55-A5300 has a 15.6-inch TruBrite LED backlit Display with a max resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels which offer you very decent graphics at a premium price and also allows you to watch some 720p content on your laptop, but dont get your hopes up too much in terms of graphics as you wont be able to watch big full length HD movies on this because of a small GPU and not much power in terms of processor. The Display is powered by Intel HD Graphics which is frankly nothing to write home about but at a sub-350$ price you shouldn’t be complaining about that.
The Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300 has a black matte finish which mostly is used by HP,but its a very good design and I like it, the overall weight of the laptop starts at 5.4 lbs which is nothing to complain about but if you have to use your laptop for a longer period of time it might be of a little annoyance. The laptop also has a DVD SuperMulti Drive which is a plus for any student or office worker who still requires it.
Other ports and specs of the laptop include Stereo speakers, an RGB port for output on older monitors, an HDMI output port to view your content on a bigger screen, 3 USB 2.0 ports(you wont find USB 3.0 for these prices), Wi-Fi and 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN
The laptop is powered by the latest Windows 8 Os which is a plus as it is a little bit faster then Win 7 so that will help in covering for the lack of processing speed. In the end the Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300 is indeed a good buy if you are looking for a budget laptop and you should go ahead and order it if you are a student or a person who doesnt have a lot of heavy computer usage.
