Let us take a look at the individual components of this notebook.
Toshiba C660-19G is powered by the Celeron T4500 which is essentially a 2.3 GHz dual core processor. The Celeron T4500has a front side bus at 800 MHz. The front side bus is the bus which connects the processor to another chip, called north bridge, 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 T4500 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.
