The Satellite A355-S6879 Notebook Computer from Toshiba is the perfect blend of mobility, style, and performance. Perfect for the digital road warrior, the computer will help you get the most out of your digital devices. You'll be able to use the notebook with digital cameras, video cameras, MP3 players, and more.

The Satellite comes with software such as Microsoft Works for productivity applications. The computer features a memory card reader to download photos from digital camera memory cards. You can easily connect peripheral devices such as digital cameras and MP3 players to the computer via the 4 installed USB 2.0 ports.

The system is powered by a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5800 CPU and boasts 3GB of RAM, 250GB SATA hard drive capacity, a SuperMulti DVD burner with Labelflash, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and a 16" widescreen display powered by Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics. Windows Vista Home Premium is the platform that ties all this hardware and software together, providing a great portable computer for the digital savvy family, backed by the Toshiba name.

Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5800 CPU
The Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5800 CPU is based on an architecture designed specifically for mobile computing; this processor delivers a balanced level of mobile processor technology and exceptional value in this lighter, easier-to-carry notebook PC. The dual-core technology delivers two execution cores in one CPU, giving you better performance than a comparable single-core processor.
Windows Vista Home Premium
The computer comes preloaded with the Windows Vista Home Premium operating system from Microsoft. Vista includes the slick Aero user interface, complete with the Windows Sidebar, gadget support, Flip3D navigation and more. The Home Premium edition of Vista includes the popular Windows Media Center application. This lets your computer more easily connect to your home theater and wirelessly stream media to the Xbox 360 or another compatible media extender device.
Integrated Camera and Microphone
The integrated camera and microphone let you easily use the notebook to participate in web video conferencing. This is great for notebook users who participate in net-meetings, as they no longer have to carry a separate web camera with them -- it's built into the laptop.
Widescreen Display
The laptop has a 16" high-definition widescreen display that brings your movies and photos to life with amazing color and clarity. The widescreen aspect ratio increases the width of the notebook's display while giving the computer the form factor of a smaller computer, so it takes up less space on your desk or in your briefcase.
Intel GMA 4500MHD Graphics
The Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics offer realistic 3-D and 2-D graphics, delivering real-life environment and character effects. Movies and digital images are sharply rendered so you can supercharge your business presentations with crisp images and animation.
Digital Photo Import
The built-in 5-in-1 card reader lets you easily download your pictures from all major digital camera memory types without the hassle of connecting cables between your camera and computer.
Virus Protection
The virus protection software comes with a trial subscription to help you protect your computer from malicious software such as viruses and trojans. This helps to protect your computer when you are browsing the web or reading e-mail.
