Our Toshiba Satellite L755-S5258 review unit has the following configuration:
- 15.6-inch glossy 720p display (1366×768 resolution)

- 802.11n wireless network adapter (Realtek RTL8188CE)

- DVD burner (TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633F)
- 6-cell Li-ion battery (10.8V, 4200mAh, 48Wh)

These specifications are almost lacking for a notebook priced at nearly $700. The included 640GB hard drive runs at a pokey 5400RPM and holds back overall performance. 4GB of RAM is the minimum these days; some similarly-priced notebooks offer 6GB. The 1366×768 screen resolution is the lowest offered in this screen size across the industry. The L755 just doesn’t have anything above the bare essentials.
Performance and Benchmarks
The L755 performed well in our benchmarks. Anyone looking for a casual computing device should not be disappointed with its performance. The L755 is not good for the latest 3D games as configured since it has an integrated Intel graphics card, not a powerful Nvidia GeForce or AMD Radeon dedicated card. It’s more than enough for everything else including HD video.
