This S55 series comes with the fast i7 processor and an upgraded video card to increase speed even more. The display is bright, clear and crisp. Lots of RAM and a terabyte hard drive. Though not a gamer myself, it sure looks like it would handle the latest games. I the compared the S55 to other makes/models and for the money, it's a great deal. It runs Windows 8.1 (and not 8) and has the Toshiba Desktop if the older interface is preferred. Just to note, it is not a touchscreen device, which I really wasn't looking for anyway - so if your looking for that feature look for a different model. Lastly, my previous laptop was a Toshiba Satellite I bought five years ago running XP. Still works fine. It was just time to upgrade. It was such a solid laptop, I had to stick with Toshiba this time around as well.

I'm Lovin' It

After my son-in-law and my wife each purchased the identical computer and were singing it's praises, I decided to get on the band wagon. I'm glad I did. I love this. Never had Win8 before now, but it isnt bad either. Things never go fast enough for me. With a hyperthreaded quad core processor (Intel i7-4700 MQ), this computer was quick, but after I installed a SSD - it's quicker. I've had Toshiba laptops before this one. I loved them all. The one with the 17" screen eats the battery in an hour and a half, but this one should do better, specially with the SSD. I'd buy another one!

Fast! Great Computer

I have my own virus protection, it was difficult to remove Norton Anti Virus and other offerings from Norton, which was pre installed, should be easier to uninstall unwanted software. A great little Laptop otherwise...

The performance is great with this laptop, but I hate Windows 8, it seems to jump from one screen to the other without me doing anything. It's frustrating. I hate the way Windows 8 works. I may have a different opinion about this laptop if Windows 7 was loaded - so it's hard to tell whether it's the platform or jumpiness of the touch of the laptop.

Within a month of purchasing this laptop, it stopped working. The technician determined the motherboard was damaged. The laptop needed to be replaced but the store no longer sold this computer. I replaced it with another brand.
