    Toshiba S55-A5169 reviews

    Satellite S55-A5169 15.6" Notebook Computer (Ice Silver) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and great laptop I had a toshiba 1.6 GHz intel i7 (first generation) (win7) and I needed to upgrade for better speed as I wanted to edit photos and some videos and I'm glad I bought this fast laptop, the processor i7 4700MQ is much faster than my older laptop, the usb3z are perfect and fast, windows 8.1 is great and new for me but i'm just getting used to it and it feels good and I love the design of it, it's fast and very nice, it's like a windows 7 with more futures and graphigs and it's much faster

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful laptop experience! My first laptop experience and I'm thankful I chose Toshiba in this model. I got the referral from my sister and brother in law, who have 3 Toshiba laptops. They are happy with them, and so am I :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good performance at reasonable price I replaced my old Win7 32 Dell laptop with this running Win8.1 64. Fortunately, after checking the compatibility first during installation, most of my old apps installed and ran fine. Doing some video encoding comparison, the i7 4700MQ is about 8 times faster than the old Core 2 Duo. The nVidia GT740M is reasonable for rendering graphics, though I am not a gamer. The same config during Toshiba's special promotion costs a lot more. Great deal here!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great notebook this is a great device for this cost. I use the computer for fun, play games, and work and all function works very well
