Simple laptop at affordable price
Display and Design
The Toshiba Satellite BC55D-A5107 features a 15.6-inch HD TruBrite LED backlit display which has a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels and enables you to view things clearly even under bright light. It is encased in a simply designed black coloured outfit which has a thickness of 33mm and a weight of 2.4kg.
CPU and Platform
Acting as the brains of the Toshiba Satellite BC55D-A5107 is a 2.0GHz AMD quad-core A6 5200M processor. It works in tandem with a 4GB DDR3 RAM which functions at 1,333MHz and is further expandable up to 8GB via two DIMM slots. Rich videos and games are handled by the preloaded AMD Radeon HD 8400 GPU. It runs on 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS to deliver intuitive user experience.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Toshiba Satellite BC55D-A5107 is armed with a HD webcam and inbuilt microphone to offer clear and noise free video calling experience. The 750GB SATA hard disk operating at 5,400rpm provides more than sufficient space for creating a library of files. The presence of a SuperMulti DVD RW Drive having dual layer support allows you to run different kinds of disks smoothly. The stereo speakers running on DTS Sound software deliver quality multimedia experience.
Battery and Connectivity
Fuelled by a 6 cell Li-ion battery, the notebook is capable of delivering uninterrupted service for a maximum period of 4.9 hours. From the connectivity point of view, we have WLAN, HDMI out, digital media reader, one USB 3.0 slot, two USB 2.0 slots and Ethernet port.
The Toshiba Satellite BC55D-A5107 has been designed to handle simple computing applications only and doesn't cost much. It impresses with its huge hard disk but misses a good processor. The latest Windows platform is a bonus considering its price.
