Toshiba satellite p755 113

The Toshiba Satellite P755-113 has some glamorous features you wouldn't expect from a laptop, but how does it deal with the fundamentals? HP's Envy 14 fell foul with a poor trackpad, Medion's Erazer X6811 feels flimsy and breakable, and while Alienware's M11x offered solid battery life, a teeny HDD and lack of optical drive let it down.

Here in laptop 101 is where the Toshiba Satellite P755-113 loses its sheen too. For starters, battery life weighs in at a restrictive 2.5 hours. Running a game or resource-heavy app, expect that to drop down below 2 hours. That's limiting to the P755-113's mobility, so your dreams of playing WoW on four-hour train rides won't come true with this laptop.

In the storage department too, an SSD would have been nice for this money, but the reality of a 750GB hard drive isn't a disaster.

The weak Intel Core i5 2410M processing speed mentioned on the Specifications page is noticeable when using the Toshiba Satellite P755-113 in general desktop use, and reflected in a pedestrian CineBench score. Applications can be unresponsive, and when you examine the other rather beefy components inside the P755, the low-end CPU is both surprising and disappointing.

The keyboard's nice and spacious and we can't complain about the trackpad's responsiveness, but the feel will divide users. Glossy is the word. If you have the money and you're looking for a mobile games machine, the Toshiba Satellite P755-113 will do the job admirably. Just bear the short battery life in mind.
