Toshiba Satellite C855-S5343

Editorial Review

The Toshiba Satellite C855 offers power, performance, and portability at the perfect price. Equipped with a sizeable 15.6-inch TruBrite widescreen display, you get tried, true and tested Toshiba innovation now made even faster and more fun with the speed and fluidity of the Windows 8 interactive tiles interface. The Satellite C855 (model C855-S5343) proves you don't have to spend a fortune to enjoy a wealth of essential features for web browsing, socializing, emailing, entertainment, and multitasking.

Take Advantage of Windows 8

Be ready to take advantage of the next big revolution in PC computing: Windows 8. The new Start screen has all of the information you care about in one place, such as your contacts, the weather, and the next appointment on your calendar. Start Page is a completely reinvented interface with interactive tiles that remain up-front and center — and they dynamically change and update in real-time.

With the power and innovation of your new Windows 8 Toshiba PC, you get apps that are always on and easily accessible from your Start screen. You'll also get new, built-in apps for the things you do most, like new Microsoft Mail, Calendar, SkyDrive, Photos, People, and Messaging.

On your Microsoft 8 Toshiba PC, the Charms bar replaces the Start button, offering quick access to search, sharing features, devices and settings. Enjoy the convenience of seeing everything front and center, right where you need it.
