Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300 Review

If you are a person that tends to use your laptop for surfing the internet, playing the odd game on Facebook, and typing, most of the notebooks on the market will be more powerful than you need them to be. This means that you will spend more than you have to on a computer that will be with you on a daily basis. But, there are a few machines on the market that are solid performers at a scream of a price, and the Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300 is definitely one of them.

What sets this computer apart is that this machine has everything that you would expect from a $900 laptop for a price less than $300. You will find the standard features including Windows 8, a webcam, wireless, 4 GB of Ram, a 500 GB hard drive. It has a 15.6” LED-backlit screen and a DVD burner. Basically everything that you would find on more expensive laptops.

Now the one thing that might turn you off if you are familiar with processors is the Celeron processor found in this machine. While it won’t allow you to play cutting edge games, it is certainly fast enough to keep the computer running along smoothly no matter what you throw at it.

Battery life is about what you would expect for a laptop in this size and price range. You can expect about 2.5 hours of battery life, and potentially more if you turn down the screen brightness and turn off the wireless card.

If you are looking for a great performing, inexpensive laptop, this one will certainly fit the bill. I would highly recommend the Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300 to family and friends.

When it comes to buying a laptop, there is plenty of value available to you if you don’t have a large budget.  If you are looking to spend just a little bit of money to get a computer that can surf the Internet, do your banking, check your email and play that Facebook game that you have wanted to play, you will be pleasantly surprised as to what you can actually get for under $400.

Sure, these machines won’t play the cutting edge games as well as you might like, but they make a perfect desktop replacement, computer for your child, or even as a computer that won’t shut off right away on your during a thunderstorm.

Where you can Find Powerbook Parts and Service

Visit PowerbookMedic.com Today! One of the most common questions that I get is about places that you can find affordable Powerbook parts and repairs.  Quite frankly, I had never really thought about it until I wrote on this blog, so I asked my friends that owned Macs.

And all I heard was silence – at least from everyone except for Bruce.

Bruce has been a hardcore Mac user since the day that I met him, and I have failed to woo him to the dark side (using a PC).  But that also means that he has been an invaluable expert when it comes to questions relating to computers that I know little about.

He suggested that the best place that has worked for him has been PowerbookMedic.com.  He had purchased a memory upgrade from them in the past, and was very happy with their service and prices.

I decided to look a little deeper, and all I found was countless praises for their prices and service.  Their site also offers free repair manuals which is perfect if you want to attempt to repair your gadgets yourself.

I was able to find a coupon where you can get 5% off $50 at PowerBookMedic.com which is a great way to try them out.

Feel free to leave feedback about their service below – I’d love to hear from you.
