The machine is great. It would have been better with Windows 7. It is so aggravating to have programs start when the cursor goes over the left side of the screen.

I have just purchased my third Toshiba laptop. The older ones are still running and have been passed down to kids. Quality product for a bargain price! As a teacher, having a reliable computer at home is a must. Toshiba fan for life!!

Meets all my needs very well.

The Toshiba Satellite c55 laptop is a great value! Lightweight and quick! It has a "touch pad", not a "touch screen" Less intimidating for those of us less tech-savy. The Apps are mostly lost on me, but the desktop works like a dream.

Excellent Value

This purchase was an excellent value. It has great specifications and features for the price point. I would give this a 5 out of 5 except the DVD drive does not always open, leaving the disc stuck inside. After many tries I can eventually get it open, but this is very frustrating. I have read on blogs many people having the same issue with other Toshiba models. This is such a basic function, I can't believe there is not a simple solution for Toshiba to fix this. Aside from this one flaw, everything else about the laptop is great.

All good if not for Windows 8

Just can't see how anyone applauds Windows 8. It appears less intuitive than previous Windows versions and it's a down right frustrating OS when inter-connecting 3rd party products/apps.

This is a good basic laptop. I wanted a no frills computer at a low price. This one fits the bill.

Very little help for setup. Phone time wait was way wat too long. Over an hour, then I was switch from tec to tec. Not good.

Worst Laptop Ever!

Pros: Absolutely nothing I hate literally everything about it. Cons: EVERYTHING!!!!! The processor died on me the 2nd day I had it and so did the track pad. I am having to write this on my desktop because it won't load the Google search bar. Review: just save your self the trouble and get something that isn't a piece of junk! I won't wish this laptop upon my greatest enemy!
