10 Reasons For

Toshiba Laptops Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Toshiba notebook PCs and also specifically for Toshiba medium processor core notebook PCs and found that in both cases Toshiba had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This notebook PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Toshiba Satellite L55T supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most laptops that are a comparable age to it. Most medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This Toshiba portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

This laptop's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago.

Across comparable types of laptop the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.

Intel Core I5 Processor Family

This laptop has an Intel Core i5-4xxx processor family, which is the most commonly found processor family on laptops of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

Across all the notebook PCs of this spec and age the total storage capacity range from 1GB to 1.5TB, and the average total storage capacity is 520GB. At 750 gigabytes, the Satellite L55T has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable age and type to the Satellite L55T.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 750GB total storage capacity portable PCs currently available including the DELL Inspiron 15 3521, the Acer Aspire E1-572, or the Toshiba Satellite C50-B which has better reviews.

Portable PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the X554LD (1TB), or the X751LAV (1TB) both from Asus or the HP 15 (1TB) which is also higher rated.

15 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Expert review site Laptopmag.com scored this medium processor core notebook PC 50 out of 100. It seems that laptop experts really don't rate this portable PC very highly.

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,000 megahertz, the Satellite L55T has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the Satellite L55T. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Satellite L55T range from 660MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Toshiba Satellite L55T does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other laptops that were launched around the same time as the Satellite L55T do have a full-size keyboard.

It is worth also looking at other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the EliteBook Folio 9480m, or the Pavilion 17-f030us both from HP or the Asus D550CA which also has a higher rating.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available including because of it's better review score, the ProBook 440, or the ENVY 15 both from HP or the Toshiba Satellite Pro L850.

If you want a notebook PC with a better storage medium then you might want to consider the T420s (£833.00) (SSD and higher rated), or the S540 (SSD and higher rated) both from Lenovo or the Fujitsu LifeBook E554 (SSD and higher rated).
