Toshiba
The 15.6" Satellite C55-B5296 Series Notebook with Windows 8.1 with Bing from Toshiba features a textured resin design with a jet black finish. The 15.6" TruBrite LED-backlit display has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1366 x 768 native resolution with native support for 720p HD content. You can also output video to an external display via the HDMI or VGA port.

The system is powered by a 2.16 GHz Intel Celeron N2830 Dual-Core processor. It also has 4GB of 1333 MHz DDR3L RAM, a 500GB 5400 rpm hard drive, a SuperMulti DVD burner, a multi-format media card reader, Ethernet RJ-45 LAN, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam, and dual microphones. There are also built-in stereo speakers.

Windows 8.1 with Bing is the installed operating system. Windows 8.1 improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. The Start button returns, but has two limited core functions. A left click takes you to the redesigned Start screen featuring tiles that update in real-time. A right click brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel and more. You will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8.1 Start screen. Windows 8.1 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

Comments about Toshiba 15.6" Satellite Laptop Computer:

I use this laptop for generally personal use. It is pretty good. I have had it for about a month now with no problems other than when I first set it up, it kept telling me there was no internet available when there was.( I have the best and fastest internet service!) I was considering taking it back when I think the laptop knew what I was about to do and fixed itself, then the issue went away on its own and I have had no more trouble. = ) Its a very good laptop and I would recommend it for now...

          Comments about Toshiba 15.6" Satellite Laptop Computer:

          I have an older model of this computer and wish I never bought a new one. This one runs way too slow. Wish I could return it.
