Long battery life...
This review is from: TOSHIBA Satellite S955D-S5374 AMD A-Series A8-4555M (1.60GHz) 6GB Memory 750GB HDD 15.6" Notebook Windows 8
Pros: I bought this laptop with the new AMD A8-4555 chip as it is supposed to draw very low power and hence produce a long battery life. I have not been disappointed, 5 hours battery life when doing normal tasks over the day including watching numerous videos has been the norm. It will also handle any graphics intense processes I throw at it, including games at the settings that match its 1366 x 768 screen, all the while staying relatively cool compared to my previous laptop. It also has a full sized keyboard with a number pad which was something I was really after. Great unit.
Cons: The biggest con to this unit is Windows 8..... Enough said.... It is also a fingerprint magnet on the area around the screen which is quite glossy. Finally it has quite a bit of bloatware that has taken some time to get rid of.
Other Thoughts: At a competitive price point you get long battery life (comparable to some Ultrabooks) with a bigger screen and you can do some gaming at respectable frame rates. Highly recommended.
