  • Speedy Intel CPU, Sleepandcharge USB, Above average battery life
  • The 15-inch Toshiba Satellite L655-S5161 is a good entry point for midsize laptops with Intel's second-gen Core i-series processors, and we've always liked the company's sleep-and-charge USB ports
  • Above-average battery life; good performance for price; nice selection of preinstalled software
  • Large display. Keyboard includes 10-key pad. Attractive design

Editors Didn't Like

  • Glossy screen shows reflections, Touchpad design, No USB 3.0/eSATA
  • The design is strictly no-frills, and there are no high-speed data ports, such as USB 3.0 or eSATA. Plus, we hate the shortened spacebar on the keyboard
  • Overly glossy keyboard; too-small space bar; mediocre Webcam; lackluster design
  • Poorly placed touchpad. Below average speakers. Slow performance
  • Mediocre performance. Not for 3D gaming
