  • Conclusion: Still, outside of some niches such as gaming laptops (which the Satellite is definitely not), it's hard to get too enthusiastic about a Windows 8 system without a Windows 8-optimized touch interface, at least at $649. The P55-A5200 would be more tempting at $500 to $550—and as more touch-enabled laptops are released this fall (some with Intel's battery-saving fourth-generation "Haswell" processors), that price point may be coming soon.
  • Pros: Polished, professional design and build, Backlit keyboard, Admirable array of ports, Crank-worthy Harman Kardon speakers
  • Cons: No touch display, Battery lasts less than four hours, DVD tray positioned for accidental pop-outs, 5.2 pounds feels heavy versus ultrabooks
