Priced at $739.99 ( MSRP according to Toshiba), the Toshiba Satellite L655-S5163 is exclusively marketed by TigerDirect. It seems to be Toshiba’s strategy to offer different models through one specific vendor, possibly, to avoid competition between vendors and cross competition.
If $739 looks slightly expensive to you, you may like to check some of the lower end core i3 based processor. In most home and office computing higher processing power is not necessary, so you may save $150 or so, by opting for a machine with, say, core i3-370M processor.
As seen from the specification, the notebook has everything that makes it a moderately powered machine suitable for home and office computing. It has the support for the latest HDMI output with which you can display the content on an external LCD HDTV.
