This review is from: TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite C55-A5390 (PSCF6U-04X00C) Intel Core i3 3110M (2.40 GHz) 6 GB Memory 750 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 15.6" Windows 8
Pros: - Fast This laptop runs really fast for less than $500. It boots up really quick and the only time I have to wait for something to load is if the internet connection sucks. -Light This laptop was lighter than I expected. I don't know if that is because it isn't made of that durable of materials, but I love it. My laptop was easily almost 8 pounds, and I'm a full-time student who likes taking his laptop with him to campus, so this is a nice change. -Looks nice Looks sleek. Enough said. -I like the keyboard I've always liked Toshiba keyboards. I also love it having a full keyboard. The space bar is smaller than ones I've had, but I got use to it quick.
Cons: -Speakers are TERRIBLE I at first thought it was the speaker settings and spent some time messing with them. After trying them with headphones and plugged into some external speakers I realized it is just the speakers on the laptop. It sounds amazing with headphones but through speakers it sounds like there is no bass and "light", is the only way I can think of it. I've started using headphones if I am watching a movie or something but will deal with the speakers for a short video. I wish I knew this buying it, it took a lot more researching after I bought it to find out that others had this issue.
Other Thoughts: Besides the speakers I absolutely love this laptop. I wish the speakers were better, but I've gotten use to them and just use headphones more often now.
Windows 8, especially with the updates, really isn't bad. I just spend all my time on the desktop and haven't even touched the apps. Just fool around with it and realize it isn't bad. Any issue you have just look it up and you may find a solution to it. Just don't be one of those people that writes a terrible review because of the OS, that's your fault for buying something with Win8.
I'd recommend this laptop as long as you're okay with bad speakers.
