Toshiba C55-A/5308 laptop specs essentials

By Peter Chubb - Nov 26, 2013

We covered many budget laptops from Toshiba because we are sure you get sick and tired of hearing all about the MacBook Pro and some of the top of the range Samsung and HP Windows laptops. It is for this reason why we still wish to show you the many cheaper options available to you.

You have already seen the Toshiba C55-A5285 and the C55D-A5382 laptop and so we know wanted to talk to you about the Toshiba C55-A/5308. This laptop has some decent specs, although it is clear they are for those of you with a limited budget.

The Toshiba C55-A/5308 Satellite laptop specs include a 15.6-inch LED backlit display with HD quality; an Intel 2.5GHz i3-3120M processor from the third-generation Series works in conjunction with its 4GB of RAM.

There is also a 750GB hard drive and Mobile Intel HD graphics, HD webcam, and a DVD±RW/CD-RW drive. The operating system is Windows 8 64-bit, although you will be able to upgrade this to Windows 8.1 if it is not already installed.

If you are lucky and do your homework then you might be able to purchase the Toshiba C55-A/5308 laptop as an Essentials package, which includes a sleeve to help protect your laptop, as well as Internet security, a mouse and an 8GB flash drive. Not all stores have this package, and so we ask that you keep a close eye out.

    I also purchased my Toshiba # C55-A5308 in a bundle at Best Buy in December for the same price. My first laptop was a Gateway and when I was looking for a new laptop I looked at those first but they are making them without CD/DVD drives so I decided to look at Toshiba. I was weary of Windows 8 but the more I use it the better and easier it gets. I really like the laptop so far, I’m in school and it is perfect for what I need it for.

    I purchased my Toshiba laptop model# C55-A5308 at bestbuy on black friday and they only had a few left in the store. It was the package deal w/ sleeve, mouse, and webroot software for $349.00 plus tax out the door. Overall for an inexpensive laptop it is way better than the Toshiba laptop I purchased for $900.00 at bestbuy in 2007 that came with windows vista. Windows 8 kinda thru me off with the funky start menu and apps, but after several days I got used to it and kinda like it. Save yourself Money and buy this laptop or equivalent it is good quality and the speed is up to par.
