This review is from: TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite S855-S5170 Intel Core i7 3630QM (2.40 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7670M 15.6" Windows 8
Pros: -Powerful enough for gaming wiith nice graphics card -Most of the bells and whistles you want and need -Good camera -Affordable -HDMI and VGA -Nice screen -Decent speakers
Cons: -Plastic cover on lid is a bit cheaply made and flimsy -Comes with Windows 8 -Trackpad is the absolute worst i've ever used. It's also in an odd place on the left side of the laptop. -Keys are bit weird, but you get used to them -No bluetooth -Too few USB ports and in odd places
Other Thoughts: I've owned this laptop for little over a month, and i've gotten over most of the small flaws it has, because, in my opinion, it's [significant] benefits outweigh them.
Two things you will definitely do is buy an external mouse and a lid cover, because the lid cover feels like you could dent it just by pushing on it hard, and the mouse pad is the most unresponsive and worst feeling one i've ever had the displeasure of using.
On the plus side, it's pretty powerful (good enough to play demanding games at medium to high settings), has most of the bells and whistles you would want (minus bluetooth), it's camera is amazing, and it's affordable.
Overall, i'd buy it again if I could, but hopefully Toshiba will have the foresight to correct these flaws in future models.
Also, i'd like to mention the laptop pictures on the website are not the correct pictures of the laptop. These are the correct ones:
