The notebook has everything, that you will expect in an entry level notebook. The only potential missing thing you could complain of is the Blu Ray ROM. But then we are looking for a moderate to high end computing machine. Also this machine will not be able to play high end games at higher resolution, limited by the Intel HD Graphics that comes integrated with the P6200 processor.
A note on the processing power and what to expect with Pentium P6200 – The Pentium P6200, that powers the Toshiba Satellite L655-S5149 is an entry level processor that gets decent performance as it inherits some of the impressive architectural advantages of Arrandale architecture, the same architecture that powers the Intel core i3 processors. It does not has the hyperthreading that core i3 processors come with, but, it has integrated memory controller, the large 3 MB L3 Cache memory. The processor is good for the home and office computing, but, if you need more processing power, you may like to take a look at core i3 and core i5 based processors.
