Summary: The Toshiba Satellite L655D is a good-looking laptop with a comfortable keyboard, good display, and some nice included software. While it handled web surfing, streaming video, and other everyday tasks just fine, its noisy fan was very distracting. Plus, at $649, the price is a bit high for just "okay" performance. The more stylish Samsung RF510 has a more powerful Core i5 processor and discrete graphics card, and is available online for the same price.
Pros: Comfortable keyboard, Nice design, Useful Toshiba software suite
Cons: Undersized space bar, Fan runs loud, Mediocre performance, Short battery life, Expensive
