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.

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.
