6 Reasons For

Toshiba Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

Toshiba is one of the superior notebook PC manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and Toshiba also has good ratings for its many processor core portable PCs.

Has a Front Camera

The Toshiba C55D has a front camera. Most of the other many processor core portable PCs that are a comparable age to the C55D also have a front camera.

We compared this laptop to all the other portable PCs with a front camera and we think the Pavilion 15-n268ea, the 255 (£278.99), and the Pavilion 17-e098nr all from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.

64-Bit Operating System Architecture

This portable PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many many processor core portable PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most portable PCs of this age and type have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the Toshiba C55D which has two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Fast HD DVD-ROM Read Speed

With an HD DVD-ROM read speed of 8 CD-speeds, the Toshiba C55D's HD DVD-ROM read speed is one of the fastest amongst laptops of a comparable age and type to the C55D. The slowest HD DVD-ROM read speed of laptops of this age and type is 1x and the fastest is 8x.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

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

Most similar spec notebook PCs that came out more than two years ago 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

Price Has Recently Increased by £12.74

In the last 59 days the price of the C55D has increased by £12.74.

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Toshiba C55D does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other many processor core portable PCs that are a comparable age to the C55D.

We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this notebook PC and we think the Pavilion 15-n268ea, the 255 (£278.99), or the Pavilion 17-e098nr all from HP which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

The Toshiba C55D has a quite slow processor clock speed (only 1.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other portable PCs of this spec and age. The average processor clock speed of portable PCs that were released more than two years ago is 2.2GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3GHz.

Laptops with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the 255 (1.8GHz and cheaper), or the 255 (£278.99) (1.8GHz and cheaper) both from HP.

We think you might also be interested in alternative laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Transformer Book T100 (£287.47), or the X553 (£249.00) both from Asus which is also cheaper.

8 Other reasons to consider the Toshiba C55D

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this notebook PC was released.

Average Screen Size

The Toshiba C55D has a fairly standard screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other many processor core portable PCs that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 15.6" laptops and we think the Asus N56VZ which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a laptop with a bigger screen size then you might want to consider the Pavilion 17-e098nr (17.3"), or the Pavilion 17 (17.3") both from HP which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 750 gigabytes, the Toshiba C55D has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other many processor core portable PCs that came out around the same time as the C55D.

Laptops with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the Pavilion 15-n268ea (1TB and cheaper), or the 255 (1TB and cheaper) both from HP.

Read more Less Chart Edit

AMD a Processor Family

The Toshiba C55D has an AMD A processor family which is better than the Intel Core i7 processor family found on most notebook PCs of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Average Weight

The Toshiba C55D has a fairly standard weight (2.4 kilograms) compared to most of the other many processor core portable PCs that were launched around the same time as the C55D.

Chart Edit

Average Internal Memory

At 4 gigabytes, the Toshiba C55D has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age.

If you want a portable PC with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the HP Pavilion 15-n268ea (8GB) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on laptops of this type and age. 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.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including a cheaper portable PC such as the Pavilion 17-e098nr, or the Pavilion 15-n268ea both from HP or you might consider a better rated portable PC such as the Asus N56VZ.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo 11e (SSD).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Battery Life

At 5.6 hours, the Toshiba C55D has a relatively standard battery life compared to most of the other portable PCs of a similar type and age to the C55D.

If this notebook PC battery life is too short for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo B50-45 (6h and cheaper).
