Share Life’s Moments on a Bigger Screen with the XFINITY X1
As an XFINITY customer, I am accustomed to some of their new technology because we have had it for over six months now. We are happy XFINITY customers. I love that they continue to...
The laptop comes with 3 USB 2.0 slots and a one year warranty. The weight of the laptop itself is around 5.5 pounds depending on the final configuration, and also comes with an HD webcam, microphone, and built in stereo speakers. The laptop has WiFi and Bluetooth capability, and comes with an optical drive for DVDs.
The AMD HD 7310 graphics card is also a low-medium end mobile graphics card that can support minimal settings in most games. Most importantly, the 1366 x 768 native resolution is not optimal for viewing high definition movies, particularly due to the amount of widescreen devices present currently.
The Toshiba Satellite is optimal for users that want an affordable laptop to fulfill basic data and word processing, as well as internet and video viewing. The AMD E-1200 dual core processor is average in performance but enough for creating documents and surfing the internet. It also draws less power than Intel chips, so laptops would have more battery life and be more mobile. The laptop is also relatively light, at 5 pounds and 16 inches diagonally, meaning that users can carry it around as a mobile workstation.
These factors favor the Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5196 16 inch laptop as a mobile workstation for documents and internet instead of intensive entertainment center.
The Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5196 16 inch laptopis now available at Staples.

This would be great for one of the kids. I need to pick up another laptop now that the kids use the computer so much for homework.
This is the perfect laptop for kids. My son uses it daily and it is perfect for him.
I have a Toshiba laptop and I must admit that I have been pretty pleased with it. I think it is about 3 years old and still going strong. 🙂
We have another Toshiba laptop too that we have had for years. It still works perfectly.
Great review. I am actually looking to get a new laptop and this review helps a lot. I was torn between a Toshiba and a HP but I think Toshiba wins.
We are really big fans of Toshiba!
Thanks for sharing I love getting my laptops at Staples they offer so many great options for all needs!
It never occurred to me before this post to go to Staples for a laptop. I definitely will go now when we need another one.
This laptop has lots of bells and whistles! I could use a new laptop BADLY! My poor laptop right now is slow and overheats! This is a really nice one, I am going to have to consider! Now I just need some money! 🙂
That is exactly what kept happening with my old laptop. I seem to burn through a laptop every 2 years or so.
We actually had a Toshiba for our first laptop and it lasted quite awhile. When it was time to get another one we went with HP this time around. I would definitely get another Toshiba in the future though. I’m sure my oldest daughter will need one of her own sooner than later.
We are big fans of the Toshiba brand. This is our third Toshiba laptop we have had.
Thanks, I have been shopping around for a new laptop!
Definitely check out Toshiba, Mitch. This is our third Toshiba laptop.
Awesome review, thank you! This actually sounds perfect for our needs right now so I will definitely be checking out Staples!
Thanks for stopping by Leanne!
Thanks for the info. Sounds like it would be a great option for the kiddos! Will have to check out Staples selection next time we are in the market.
This is the perfect laptop for my son. He loves it and uses it daily.
This would definitely be great for my daughter as she goes back to college.
It is a great laptop for word processing. My son uses it for school.
We use Excede satellite internet with this laptop, it takes about 30minutes to setup, and works well. Just point south with a clear view of the sky and you are set! It’s great to have if you are RV’ing and are in the middle of nowhere as it’s a great distraction. The laptop itself is pretty fast for it’s price as well considering we usually purchase Asus computers.
