Summary: I have not had a lot of luck with laptops, but I purchased this one a couple of months ago on a lightening deal, and it has done the job. I like that it has the touchable screen which is very nice and the right balance of sensitivity so it's not jumping all over the place but isn't hard to maneuver.
Summary: The Toshiba Satellite is great from startup to the touchscreen it has it all without bloatware.I was looking for a laptop that would be quick and reasonably priced. By adding 4gbs of ram and a 240ssd to the mix this computer screams.I now use the 500gb harddrive as a storage drive that a can hook it...
Summary: I needed a laptop to take of school, work, and general computing but I didn't wan't to spend a ton of money. I originally found this model on the Microsoft store but they were out of stock. After researching this laptop and others under $500, I decided this was the best bang for the buck.
Summary: Wonderful Computers. I advise everyone. Only it is necessary to replace the hard drive. I recommend to the Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-75E250B / AM) and add Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L and will fly like an airplane. I love it more and more.
Toshiba Satellite S55t-B5152 is a great deal. I highly recommend this.

Summary: This Satellite S55t0B5152 laptop is exactly what I was looking for. Very fast for my applications in a thin and light package. The resolution of the screen is great. Very satisfied for this powerhouse at this price.
Summary: Amongst the Toshiba offerings that have a full HD touch screen and an i5 processor this one is by far the best value in my opinion. This is my second Toshiba (first one was an i3, still perfect after 3 years of 24/7 use) and I believe they make the best laptops.
