Toshiba Satellite C660-155
Advantages: High Quality Sound and Picture, Fast Processor and lots of RAM
Disadvantages: only a 320GB Hard drive on basic model, Speakers could have a better design.
This Laptop is the definition of Value for money, i managed to purchase it for the bargain price of £329, and when you consider it has a powerful 2.53ghz processor, 15.6" Screen, add to that it has 4GB of ram, and you have a super smooth computer, which can handle simultaneousness tasks, effortlessly, i won't bore you with the technical details as they can be seen above, they are all very impressive.
My main concern when buying this laptop was whether it would be powerful enough to run some games, it comes with integrated Intel HD Graphics, but it doesn't have a dedicated graphics card, such as Nvidia or Radeon, so as you can imagine i was apprehensive when i popped in my Sims 3 disk... But to my surprise, it played without any problems, smooth and crisp, with no excessive loading or lag, it also has no problems with video, handling 1080p youtube video's with no problem whatsoever (something which would freeze my old acer laptop)
It comes with the Windows 7 64bit operating system (a huge improvement on the dreadful vista) and everything just works, you open the box, the laptop loads up, and around 20 minutes later, it is up and running, everything really is so simple, it has no problems finding wifi, browsing the internet is a smooth, fast experience, you very rarely encounter any freezing or stuttering when loading even the most data intensive of web pages.
This Laptop is ideal for anyone wishing to edit their videos, programs such as Sony Vegas, Cyberlink power director and corel video studio all work seamlessly, i just download the trials because i'm cheap like that, but for anyone who is interested in video editing, this machine won't let you down, Also, for anyone who wishes to video chat with relatives or friends via skype, i have tried this a few times and it has worked flawlessly, it comes with an in-built 0.3mp camera which doesn't sound particularly great, but the picture surprisingly is very clear and not laggy at all, in comparison to the camera on the Google Nexus 7, which is 1.2 mp but far less clear and much laggier, so don't pay to much attention to the numbers, the 0.3mp webcam is very good.
And finally the sound is very clear and crisp, the speakers are situated on the front of the device, just above the keyboard and they resemble scart sockets, they could of been designed slightly better in my opinion, but hey, i'm not complaining, this laptop is perfect for just about anyone, sure you could get a more expensive, powerful machine, but for an all rounder, this can not be beaten.
Thank you for reading my review.
Summary: An Excellent All rounder
