My Toshiba Laptop is a glorified tablet, it doesn't have a disc drive of any type. As such it was priced very well and it meets the needs I have for a laptop near perfectly.

THIS IS THE GREATEST BEGINNERS OR STUDENT LAPTOP WHY BECAUSE ITS EASY TO USE-THE KEYBOARD IS EASY TO SEE-ITS GOT A 500GB HARDRIVE- THE 2 GIGABYTES OF MEMORY CAN BE UPGRADED TO 8 GIGABYTES AND ITS NOT THAT HARD TO INSTALL IT .AND HERES HOW ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TAKE THE BATTERY OUT FIRST -THEN TURN IT OVER FIRST PUT A TOWEL DOWN BEFORE YOU TURN IT OVER TO PREVENT SCRATCHING-THEN REMOVE ALL THE SCREWS IN THE BOTTOM T-THEN VERY SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY REMOVE THE BACK AND INSTALL THE MEMORY NOTE DO NOT FORCE IT-THEN CAREFULLY PUT THE BACK ON AND INSTALL THE SCREWS AND YOUR DONE.YOURE WELCOME..ON THE HARDRIVE IT CANT BE UPGRADED HOWEVER TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE YOU CAN PURCHASE AN EXTERNAL 1 OR 2 TERRABYTE WHICH IS MORE THAN ENOUGH SPACE NOTE IF PORTABILITY IS THE ISSUE YOU WANT TO GET A USB POWERED NOT AN AC OUTLET ONE

I am used to Windows XP so I am still getting used to this computer. So far it is a challenge that I am enjoying. I was rather disappointed that it did not have a CD/DVD player, although I did purchase a DVD Writer that seems to be sufficient for my use. My aatings are a bit premature in that I have not used the battery system as yet

This is my 3rd Toshiba, they last long. The battery life is pretty decent but once your computer gets old, you have to be charging it. It won't hold charge but for an hour or so. The charger is the big problem. I've had to buy several through the years. But I trust Toshiba for great computers and always return to them.

I have been undecided about purchasing a laptop. Then I saw the deal for this one online and couldn't pass it up. It's not the laptop giving me problems but 8.1 sure is. Purchased 8.1 for Seniors and once I figure it out things should be smooth. I like the size of this laptop and the features for what I will use it for which is recipes, newsletters, and POGO games.

Decent Beginner Laptop

Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I bought this for my daughter to replace a Toshiba we have had since 2006. I had hoped the 2GB of RAM would be sufficient for internet use, but it was not. I upgraded to 8GB of RAM and it works fine on the net now. I have not taken the time to tailor the automatic updating so sometimes when you turn it on you almost can't use it right away because the update processes are running and it takes 100% of the CPU, which Toshiba really ought to test more thoroughly. Once it has stopped checking for updates this machine works pretty well. I prefer the older style setup where the laptops would ask if you want to check for updates so you can say yes when you know you can just leave the computer alone for a few minutes while it does it's thing. I have clocked the internet speeds upload and download and it gets the same results as my Lenovo that has a more powerful processor. I know this is more about my internet speed, but I was curious and checked anyway. Videos now load quickly and bringing up multiple applications is no longer a problem with the increased RAM.

I like everything about the laptop, except Window 8.1. I was not able to use the computer as expected during a recent vacation to Mexico. I visited 4 cities and I was not able to log on, due to problems with Windows 8.1, not being compatible with the Wi-fi networks in Mexico. That was very disappointing, as I made the purchase to be able to stay in contact with family and friends. I have Windows 7 on my desktop and I am very pleased with it. I don't know if there is a fix or a patch to correct the problem for international use of this computer.

Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

What do you REALLY need? After seeing no CD drive and no battery release, I had a feeling this was a BASIC LIMITED Model. I just about passed this off. But, I was only looking for a laptop to email, browse and a little youtube. For this use, I don't need a CD for jamming my HD full. When I work with pictures, I use a thumb drive or external HD. If I really need a CD I will get an external. My only real negative is 2GB MEM??? Otherwise it works and uninstall norton of a less resident security suite. Not bad at all really.

A gift

POSTED BY: ironclad , Texas
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

I have always used a Desk Top PC and received the C55-B5299 Laptop as a gift. While I appreciate the thoughtfullness of the giver my only complaint is that this model does not come with a built in CD/DVD recorder/player; which is a must in my world. Unless you want to be limited and back the system up on a thumbdrive and add programs on line only you will need to purchase a USB CD/DVD recorder/player. Had I purchased a laptop myself I would not have chosen this model; but one with a built in recorder/player as well as programs such as MS Office, etc...already installed. This PC may have cost less; but in the long run will be more expensive by having to purchase these items as extra

Only has 2 meg ram (advertised) and NO DVD but works fine as long as you accept that. I took out the 2 GB ram and put in an 8 GB. Runs fine. I also own the next one up for 100 more, you get 4GB ram and DVD, and that works well for 100 more. Of course, adding ram is a task as there is no panel, must remove entire back. But, it was easy.

Not upgradeable in any sense of the word. Can't upgrade memory at all. Can't add dvd drive...even though there is a slot for it. (Can't find one to buy.) I understand to keep price low, this unit comes with minimum hardware, but....I should be able to upgrade things without problem.

Waste of time and money. I have been using a Toshiba Satellite laptop L555-S7929 for years and I love it. It is fast, convenient and fabulous. But it is also very well-used, so I decided to purchase the Toshiba Satellite C55-B5299 Laptop. This one is so slow and frustrating to use. It is cheaply put together and I feel like I am using a toy rather than a business machine. I also HATE Windows 8! I am going to give it to my children as I waited to long to attempt to return it.

I bought 3 of these laptops at once due to the price. I only wanted something that I could easily go on the internet and navigate. So far, I have had to bring one back for a hardware failure, one has had issues with wi-fi connection, and overall they are slow. I expected way too much for the price. This computer isn't a complete failure, but I would not buy it again.

At first the laptop seem to work great, but as time as gone by it seems to be getting worse. First off, there is no where to plug in headphones; the laptop is freezing, the trackpad has also been freezing. Forcing to shutdown the computer and restart which seems to fix the issue for a day or two and then needs to be restarted.

I have used and worked on toshibas for a long time and when this was bought for me it is for school. it is the biggest piece of garbage I've have ever used. I've had to disable and re enable the touch pad in the device manager several times because it stops working and no i am not just turning it off with the function. In the first week of use with less than 20% of the HDD used it locks up and needs to be hard rebooted to unlock it. The norton installed on it was so annoying I had to download a removal tool to get it out. over all your product quaility has gone to garbage i would return it but it was bought for me so i have no receipt once school is over i will taking a 12 gauge shot gun to this machine I'll email you all the video.

I cannot begin to say how much this laptop frustrates me. I am really good to my laptops and treat them well. I bought this laptop because I wanted something, reliable for my classes. My other laptop was having power cord problems. This is a basic, basic model, for people who are novice with computers. First, its slow. Second, it has cursor problems, if it updates or there is too much traffic, you cannot use the mouse pad. Third, you cannot have more then 1 applications going on at the same time, as this will lead to it slowing down. Try having Word document open and the internet browser, you have no idea how slow this machine is. This is my first Toshiba laptop and I am not happy with it. First and last time.
