Summary: At $599, the Toshiba Satellite L755-S5166 is a pretty good deal. You get a computer that boasts strong everyday performance, can actually play games such as "World of Warcraft," and lasts a pretty good amount of time on a charge. And with its brushed aluminum lid, the Satellite L755-S5166 isn't hard on the eyes, either. For $50 less, you can get a similarly configured HP Pavilion g6x, whose design we prefer over Toshiba's.
Conclusion: The Satellite L755 (or Satellite L750 if you configure it on Toshiba.com) is what I call a very safe choice for a laptop. It has just the right amount of speed and performance for the typical student or home user, it doesn’t break the budget and it’s design is decent though not stunning. Is the L755 built as well as a business laptop or MacBook Pro? No, but it also costs half as much.
Excerpt: The Toshiba Satellite L755 is sold direct from Toshiba.com as the Satellite L750 or in various online and bricks and mortar retailers as the Toshiba Satellite 755 model. The Satellite L750 is a 15.6” screen desktop replacement style laptop that comes equipped with an Intel Core i3 or Core i5 processor.
Summary: TestIT!2011, the third. The Japanese manufacturer, Toshiba, also takes part in the big notebook test 2011 with the Satellite L755-14P. Of course, Notebookcheck takes a closer look at this device, as well. Does the Toshiba Satellite L755-14P, an entry-level 15 incher, perhaps have the makings of a winner?
Pros: Good application performance, Chic design, Good battery life, The fresh design.
Cons: Clattery case, Spongy keyboard, Small touchpad, Poor contrast/viewing angles, Not much because all must haves for a notebook of this category is available. USB 3.0 and an eSATA port would be an enrichment for the Toshiba laptop.
Conclusion: For the specifications and performance on offer, not to mention the included Blu-ray drive, the L755 is very aggressively priced. While the notebook may be let down slightly by a keyboard and trackpad that would benefit from some tweaking, and optimally the addition of backlighting, the L755 is still a beauty of a mid-range offering. We thoroughly enjoyed using it and found our first favourable impressions in this case to prevail.
Pros: --- :"\302\240Beautiful Screen, Impressive specifications and performance, Included Blu-ray player, Competitive price."
Excerpt: Toshiba’s entry-level laptops are perfect for anyone looking for a no-nonsense machine that can handle everyday tasks, and the Satellite L755 is no exception. With a 15in screen, Intel Core i3 processor and spacious 640GB hard disk, there should be something here for everyone. With its red plastic chassis, the L755 looks much more suited to the home than other Toshiba models.
