5 Reasons For

Toshiba Has Good Reviews for Its Portable PCs

Medium processor core notebook PCs manufactured by Toshiba have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that Toshiba also has good reviews across its entire range.

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the C55D, the Toshiba C55D has a front camera.

Chart Edit

802.11n WiFi Standard

This notebook PC has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Operating System Architecture

This portable PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot

This notebook PC has a 2x SO-DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot on notebook PCs of this type and age.

Chart Edit

18 Reasons Against

Only One USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Port

Most laptops of a similar age and spec to the C55D have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Toshiba C55D which has one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Toshiba C55D does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years which have a full-size keyboard.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many laptops that were released more than two years ago. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

If the storage medium of this Toshiba notebook PC is too bad for you then you might want to look at the T420s (£1,388.87) (SSD), or the S540 (SSD) both from Lenovo.

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

When compared to other laptops of this age and spec that we have assessed, the processor clock speed of the Toshiba C55D of only 1 gigahertz is one of the slowest. Across all the similar spec laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the C55D the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.1GHz.

We compared all the other 1GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs to this notebook PC and we think the Acer Aspire One AO725 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
