Reasonably Priced

Two people who bought it reckoned that it was cheap. Pcmag.com wrote on expert website PC Mag “The Toshiba Satellite C55D-B5244 ($469.99 as tested) is a budget desktop-replacement laptop priced quite a bit higher than the $250 budget Windows 8.1 laptops, for a good reason”.

Easy to Use

One Toshiba C55D owner who bought this laptop considered that it was comfortable and easy to hold. Computershopper.com said in their Toshiba C55D review “Comfortable fullsized keyboard”.

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the Toshiba C55D has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other laptops of this age and spec. Comparable spec laptops that have been available for around the same time as the C55D have total storage capacitys of between 32GB and 2.2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 730GB.

Alternative 1TB total storage capacity notebook PCs currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision M4800[plb_2953090_price], the Asus X553MA[plb_2768436_price], or the Toshiba Satellite C70D-C[plb_2936884_price].

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Satellite L50D-C[pl_3012452_price] (1TB), or the Satellite L50D-C[pl_3017877_price] (1TB) both from Toshiba or the MSI PE70 2QE[plb_2953236_price] (1.1TB) which also has a higher rating.

The Toshiba C55D has a front camera, as do most of the other notebook PCs that were launched more than a year ago.

We compared all the other laptops with a front camera to this portable PC and we think the HP EliteBook 755[plb_2319127_price], the Acer Aspire E5-532[plb_2960732_price], and the Lenovo B50-45[plb_2947640_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

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.

We compared all the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media to this laptop and we think the HP 255 G3[plb_2320552_price], the DELL Precision M4800[plb_2953090_price], and the Acer Aspire ES1-711[plb_2971844_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative 4GB internal memory portable PCs currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the B50-45[pl_2947640_price], or the ThinkPad E555[pl_2731970_price] both from Lenovo or the DELL Latitude 3150[plb_2900339_price].

If you want a notebook PC with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Satellite L50D-C[pl_3017877_price] (6GB), or the Satellite C55D-C[pl_2960536_price] (6GB) both from Toshiba or the Lenovo G50-45[plb_2964231_price] (6GB) which is also higher rated.
