Toshiba Satellite Fusion L55W-C5252 2-in-1 Laptop
Satin gold Toshiba Satellite Fusion L55W-C5252 is a brand new affordable 2-in-1 15.6 inch touchscreen convertible laptop and tablet that can also be used in tent and stand modes- easily turned 360 degrees around the hinge and the screen doesn’t detach from the keyboard. It is designed for handling your daily tasks smoothly on the go and comes with the dual core Broadwell Intel i3-5015U processor at 2.1GHz speed, 6GB DDR3L SDRAM at 1600MHz (2GB + 4GB), 500GB SATA HDD as average storage size at slower 5400rpm rotating speed and 64-bit Windows 10 Home operating system with Cortana, Continuum and Microsoft Edge. 15.6 inch LED-backlit touch display has the not so impressive 1366×768 pixel resolution but includes IPS panel for better viewing angles on all modes. Mobile Intel HD 5500 graphics with a benchmark score of 557 ensures acceptable multimedia performance and light gaming as this is a lower priced convertible PC with already reasonable technical specs so you really can’t expect advanced gaming capabilities from this machine. Games like LOL and WOW will run very smoothly at high frames per second but titles of 2016 will work at much lower settings and fps.
Satin gold Satellite is made of solid plastic, not metal, looks modern, weighs 5.1 pounds and measures 14.9 x 9.6 x 0.9 inches and the 3-cell 45Wh lithium ion battery should last around 4 hours on average so this is not really a convertible to be carried around a lot and to be used away from power outlets for too long. It has a backlit keyboard with a 10-key numpad and standard touchpad, doesn’t include a DVD Drive but adequate connectivity including 802.11ac wireless for better internet access and Bluetooth 4.1 (no Ethernet / wired internet), a USB 3.0 port, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI with 4K UHD output, a Media Card Reader (SD / MMC), an Audio-Out port and a basic webcam with TruTalk Microphones. Convertible- laptop and tablet in one machines are often expensive as you’re paying for design so you need to sacrifice a little on specs but the good thing is you will not pay to get a separate tablet. You won’t get a high end very powerful performance from it in very demanding tasks as the fifth generation processor scores around 3200 in Passmark benchmark as of now and the memory is 6GB on two sticks of 2GB and 4GB but that can be upgraded to 16GB. We are not impressed by the HDD at 5400rpm and you may be better off replacing it with an SSD and overall this is a 2-in-1 with average performance that will run day-to-day things efficiently at home or office. Overall this Toshiba is worth having a look if you want a tablet and laptop in one with a certain degree of portability but you can also check out other regular models with higher technical specs.
