What the community says about Toshiba Satellite S55T
- "This laptop has some good features that many will find attractive. The processor has enough power to handle lots of gaming and the screen is very nice to look at. However some users have had trouble with the NVIDIA GeForce card working properly, so this computer is somewhat of a gamble. "
- "We needed a hefty laptop for the classroom, so the graduating seniors could get some real world experience designing the next floppy bird or snoopchat, or whatever is popular today. I, personally, don't use those silly phone apps, but I know the kids love them, and java's java, really. The S55T laptops are cheap enough we could toss a cluster in the lab and let the boys have at them. Heck, with the 128gb SSD, these puppies are almost fast enough that I'd use one at home."
- "This touchpad is atrocious and to have such a solidly built frame and casing, the fact that the touchpad is so bad is Almost a deal breaker. Coming from the land of HP and Dell's whose touchpads are smooth and easy to use, out of the box this touchpad is horrible. Stiff, needs significant pressure to move the mouse, left and right mouse buttons are apart of the pad and the right click is harder to activate then the left. In addition to the above, out of the box it seemed to have a huge dead spot right in the middle of the pad. Its literally so bad i almost attempted to return the laptop because of it. I changed settings, did the registry change mentioned in the other review (just disable clicking on the touchpad- not a solution), ect, ect and nothing worked. I eventually just got used to if needing to left click just tapping the upper left hand corner but with this being a 800+ dollar laptop i shouldn't have to make absurd concessions like that. UPDATE: 8 months into laptop ownership, i believe i have finally "worn" the pad in and now it clicks from anywhere on the pad (activating a right click is still a nuisance). Even with that being said, the pad is still of low quality and"
- "I'll get the negative out of the way to start. I hate the touchpad. I found it to be useless. The only joy I receive from the touchscreen is making use of it to pause videos. It was a huge disappointment. On the brighter side, the Toshiba Satellite S55T allows me to multitask in a state of contentment. It doesn't slow me down at all. I feel it does suit my needs for Visual Studio development, but due to the lack of touchscreen functionality, I am unsure that it is worth the price."
