Step up from mainstream with the smart performance and sensational styling offered by the Satellite S855 laptop, a great all-around PC delivering powerful discrete graphics options and high-end processing power at your desk or on the move. If you want the goodness of Toshiba’s mainstream laptop line – plus a bit more in terms of looks and power – this PC is for you. You’ll get available dedicated graphics, USB 3.0, strong multicore processors to drive your gaming and multitasking, plus stand-out styling with a hyper-cool Brushed Aluminum Ice Blue finish. A big 15.6″ diagonal display5 gives you more room for multitasking, spreadsheets and widescreen entertainment, plus the freedom to pack up and go. The SRS Premium Sound HD sound system and optional Blu-ray Disc player4 will make for megamovie nights. This PC also comes with plenty of ports to hook into printers, external storage and other devices for more power and flexibility, with a standard HDMI port to splash HD content onto a home theater. And Toshiba “Smart” Features will definitely add versatility and confidence to your computing.
Offering plenty of mobile computing power plus room to multitask, study, and play, the Toshiba Satellite L855D (model L855D-S5242) offers a generous 15.6-inch LED-backlit HD display that’s great for doing more things at once–handling business at home or in the field, watching movies or playing online RPG games. It’s got a full-size keyboard and 10-key pad for smoother typing and data entry plus chambered stereo speakers for high-definition audio playback. And its high-gloss Fusion II Finish in Mercury Silver will be sure to raise a few eyebrows.
It’s powered by a second-generation 1.9 GHz AMD A8-4500M quad-core Accelerated Processor, which combines a CPU and a graphics processing unit (GPU) on a single chip, helping to accelerate daily applications while also delivering lower power consumption. You’ll also get an extra boost of performance (up to 2.8 GHz of power) for those demanding calculations–or graphics-heavy tasks, right when you need it and greater power efficiency when you don’t–thanks to AMD Turbo Core 3.0 technology. It’s complemented by AMD Radeon HD 7640G discrete-class graphics with support for DirectX 11.
While the all-purpose, eco-smart Satellite L855D is light on its feet at just 5.3 pounds, it’s packed with powerful computing resources, including a SuperMulti drive that can burn a plethora of disc formats, and plenty of ports and storage to give you the freedom to expand, or hold more files and media. And thanks to the built-in webcam and Toshiba Face Recognition software on this machine, you’ll enjoy a more convenient way to communicate, log on, or share your laptop among the family.
This Satellite laptop features two super-speed USB 3.0 ports–the latest development in USB data transfer technology. In addition to quicker transfer speeds, your USB 3.0-enabled devices won’t require a separate power cable either, unlike eSATA technology.
It also comes pre-loaded with exclusive Toshiba software, including Bulletin Board (for desktop organization), Media Controller (for sharing media), and ReelTime (a graphical search utility).
This Satellite comes pre-installed with the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (learn more below).
