Advantages and Disadvantages of Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049 (Review)

Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049 runs on a single-core Intel Celeron 900 processor, which is clocked at 2.2GHz. It is the same speed that the single-core AMD Sempron V120 chip found on Compaq CQ62-215DX. But that didn’t make any difference and both the system were found trailing behind the budget laptops with dual-core CPUs, the cheapest laptop to have a dual-core CPU costs around $150 to $200 more.

Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049 certainly isn’t the flashiest kid on the block, and that’s pretty understandable, considering the fact that it has been priced only a mere $349. Toshiba gives the 15.6-inch laptop, a simple, lusterless-black, textured plastic chassis, which any manufacturer could give. On top of it, the system comes with a single-core Intel Celeron processor, which suffers from basic use, but at the same time the single core processor of the system makes it trail behind the slightly pricier $150 to $200 priced dual-core laptop.

Advantages:
The Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049 is a lightweight and reasonably priced system, which comes with a responsive multitouch touchpad and respectable battery life.

Disadvantages:
The Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049 is powered by a single-core processor, which makes the system lag behind the slightly pricier dual-core laptops. In addition, the system doesn’t have a webcam and only has two USB ports.
