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.

Toshiba Laptop

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

I purchased this laptop, which was touted as being "the best they had" at staples...top of the line. 12GB Ram, 1TB hard drive...nice looking, nice feel, nice and thin. But, alas, when I got it home I quickly discovered it had a very important (to me) component missing...no CD drive...AT ALL! Now I suppose that would not be an issue if I were some young person just starting out in computer land, but having owned computers from the dark ages, through the floppy disk and then to CD, I have amassed a number of nice little programs I purchase (in disc format) that I could not load...such as, Microsoft Office! Of course it is not the end of the world than I now have to purchase an external CD/DVD burner/player, but it is just another component I now have to keep on my already limited-for-space desk, and the aggrevation of having to buy something to make this "top of the line" laptop work for me....very frustrating, and I think mindless that they did not include a CD drive onboard.

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

The singularly most unreliable computer I have ever purchased. I have had it less than 6 moths, and have had to return it to the factory for a defective
motherboard. I've had it back 2 and a half days, and got an error message saying it was overheating and that I should turn it off and return it to the factory!
