PROS:
- good battery life
- great performance of everyday tasks (e-mail, web, Microsoft Office 2013, etc.)
- good gaming performance (steam, LoL, COD: BO2, Portal 2, etc.)
- lightweight & thin
- okay speakers
- beautiful
- number pad
- 3 USB ports (1 USB 2.0 & 2 USB 3.0)

CONS:
- okay speakers
- weird function buttons (atleast for a computer nerd)
- hard to access BIOS (only applies to devs and hackers or modders)
- integrated graphics card limits gaming, but still keeps up
- NO CD/DVD DRIVE (i didn't care, but you might)

REVIEW:

AESTHETICS
This laptop is beautiful, people often ask me if it is a MacBook (and i respond NO!) The brushed aluminum gives it a sleek and stylish look. This laptop is thin and light, definitely portable and i am a college student, so that is definitely a must. The speakers are good quality sounding, but lack that high level of volume that some people need.

PERFORMANCE
It can definitely handle multiple applications running, I've run netflix and web browsing simultaneously. It can easily handle any task thrown at it. The gaming department is not as good as a gaming laptop, but then again this isn't a gaming laptop. However, I was able to run Call of Duty: BO2 multiplayer from steam with an FPS ranging from 35-60 and an average of 45, while on battery and using Razor Game Booster. The 12GB of RAM and Intel i7 definitely make this machine a powerhouse.

BATTERY
The battery life on this thing is amazing. I was able to play COD: BO2 for two hours straight on battery, which might not seem like a long time, but it is for gaming. I can go a whole day of classes and studying without charging the laptop. I only run my laptop on High Performance battery profile and my brightness is at 100% all the time, so if anything, my results should be an understatement to this laptops battery life. The laptop also handle thermal stress pretty well. After gaming for hours both plugged in and on battery, the laptop heats up a bit, but not a lot, which is pretty impressive. The one thing that troubles me is that if i leave my laptop plugged in for too long while charging, say when i'm gaming, the power supply gets really hot. But i just unplug it and it cools down (which makes sense).

QUIRKS
Everything has its own little quirks that you have to get used to. The biggest one for some people might be that this laptop lacks a physical CD/DVD drive, and there is no VGA port, but there an HDMI port. The Function keys (F1-F12) are switched with the utility keys. There is no sleep or lock button.

FINAL THOUGHT
Definitely buy this laptop, whether it is for school (which is why i bought it), light to moderate gaming, everyday use, or high performance tasks, this laptop can handle it. I would buy this laptop all over again.

I had the laptop for less than one week when I noticed the screen remained blank after turning on the computer. I was able to get it working after turning it on and off after three or more tries. This went on for another week which drove me to call Toshiba tech support. After trying several of their suggestions without success, I was told to send the laptop for service at my expense. Despite it being under warranty, I had to pay $29.99 for shipping. Not happy, considering how much I paid for this laptop. Who knows when I will get it back and if it will be fixed properly. Most likely some of my software will be gone. Are they going to charge me for repairs and then tell me to submit a claim? This purchase has become a big hassle.

        Comments about Toshiba Satellite 15.6-Inch Laptop (S55-B5280):

        Being a longtime Windows 7 user I decided it was time to learn Win 8. This Toshiba offers an i7 4th-gen processor, 12 GB of RAM and 1 TB hard drive. The sale price made it impossible to resist. It was easy to set up but not having a DVD/CD drive will take some getting used to. Size and weight is very nice and the battery life is better than I expected. I am a happy camper.
