The Toshiba C55 has a fairly typical processor clock speed (2.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to the C55.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2.4GHz processor clock speed laptops currently available including the Lenovo B590[plb_1558326_price], or the Fujitsu LifeBook A544[plb_2142770_price] which is cheaper.

Average Screen Size

The Toshiba C55 has a fairly average screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to the C55.

We compared all the other 15.6" laptops to this notebook PC and we think cheaper laptops such as the DELL Latitude 15 3550[plb_1453263_price], and the Acer Travelmate TMP253-M[plb_1476372_price] is also worth considering.

If this portable PC screen size is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Asus X75A[plb_2440533_price] (17.3").

If you would consider a portable PC with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the DELL Latitude 15 5000[plb_2045815_price] (2.4kg), or the Toshiba C55[plb_2201915_price] (2.4kg).
