Toshiba P755-1001X – A Multimedia Workhorse

A Multimedia Workhorse

Recently, two types of notebooks have been getting all the attention: the super slim and light Ultrabooks, and the extremely powerful desktop replacement gaming machines (both of which will set you back a hefty amount of cash). But while many lust after one (or both), the majority of notebook users will actually end up purchasing a more sensible option: the humble multimedia notebook - affordable, reasonably portable, with enough power for most applications, and even some light to moderate gaming.

The "Metallic" finish is quite convincing from some angles.

Toshiba’s Satellite P755 is one of the latest of these multimedia notebooks, equipped with a 15.6-inch display, quad-core Intel i7-2630QM (2.0GHz) processor, NVIDIA GT 540M graphics module with 2GB VRAM, 8GB DDR3 SDRAM and a 640GB SATA HDD. Other features include a backlit keyboard, lighted trackpad, and audio speakers by Harmon Kardon. Intrigued? Let's take a look inside.
