Been There, Done That. What Else?
Yup, the Toshiba Satellite. It’s one of those iconic names that’s been around for a really long time and represents a huge range of Toshiba notebooks ranging from the budget to the mid/high end. Today, we’ll be reviewing one of Toshiba’s Satellite models, the Satellite P855-S5200.
The Satellite P855-S5200 is one of Toshiba’s middle of the road Satellite notebooks which, from a performance standpoint, sits somewhere between the ultra budget Satellites’ and the high end Satellites’.
Taking a look at the specifications for the P855-S5200, we get a fairly powerful Intel Core i7 3610QM, which for those of you know checked out our recent review of the CyberPowerPC X6-9120 will know that it’s an excellent processor that strikes a very nice balance between TDP, price and performance. In addition to this the P855-S5200 also comes equipped with 8GB of DDR3, a 750GB hard drive, harman/karman stereo speakers, and more.
