We are presenting this review as it is one of the best selling notebook on amazon uk. Toshiba Satellite C660-125 is a 15.6 inch Notebook that is powered by Intel Celeron T3500 Processor and comes with ample 3GB RAM. Its hard disk is 320 GB sufficient for most of your purpose. Let us take a look at the individual components of this notebook.

Processor

Toshiba C660-125 is powered by the Celeron T3500 which is essentially a 2.1 GHz dual core processor. It is relatively old processor, that has front side bus at 800 MHz. The front side bus is the bus which connects the processor to another chip, which in turn communicates with the memory and peripheral. The processor has slow memory communication because it first communicates with the chipset which in turn communicates with the memory. This is unlike the newer Intel core i3 processors, which communicate with the memory directly using its integrated memory controller. The Celeron T3500 should be good enough for home and office computing, but you may like to take a look at the recent entry level core i3 based notebooks if you are looking for some better performance without paying too much extra.

Memory and Hard Disk

The Satellite C660-125 comes with copious 3 GB RAM. Since the operating system eats up close to 1 GB of RAM you are left with only 2 GB of RAM. This should be good enough for most of your multitasking needs. The hard disk of 320 GB is good enough for most of your purposes unless you are looking forward to store a very large number of videos.

The Toshiba Satellite C660-125 comes with decent 15.6 inch display which gives out decent bright color.

Connectors

Other Features
This Toshiba Satellite Laptop does come with the webcam, something that you must always check in any entry level notebook, since many of them do not come with one.
