Toshiba’s Satellite L755D is the only laptop here powered by one of AMD’s Llano processors. In some respects, the Toshiba lags behind the Intel-powered opposition. A result of 0.45 in our Real World Benchmarks is a little off the pace, and battery life leaves the Toshiba bringing up the rear.
When it comes to gaming, however, AMD’s Llano takes on models with dedicated graphics. It wasn’t until we pushed up our Crysis test to Medium detail that the Toshiba slowed to an average of 25fps. It’s mightily impressive.
Elsewhere, the Toshiba puts in a solid effort. The keyboard and touchpad throw up no nasty surprises, and the display delivers lively colour reproduction. Connectivity is good, too, although USB 3 is entirely absent.
It isn’t perfect, but those looking for good gaming ability on the cheap won’t be disappointed.
