The Good Great build quality for the price. Unless you're a gamer, will likely provide all the performance you need.

The Bad Fewer than usual USB ports. No Bluetooth.

The Bottom Line For AU$799, the Toshiba Satellite C665 is a perfectly good laptop. The omission of Bluetooth could be a show-stopper for some, but this is otherwise quite a deal.

The Satellite C665 is an excellent example of a mid-range laptop. All black, nothing too flashy, but a decent 15.6-inch 1366x768 screen, good keyboard, and a rather attractive AU$799 price.

The touchpad is tiny, yet it somehow remains quite usable. It's nice to use physical mouse buttons again compared to the current proliferation of clickpads, which integrate the mouse buttons into the pad itself.

It is decently specced too, with a Core i5 2430M @ 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM and a GeForce 315M. A 500GB hard drive serves storage duties, while a DVD burner is accessible when required.

There is one omission: while you will get 2.4GHz 802.11n wireless, you won't find Bluetooth here.

While the usual-suspect ports are available — HDMI, VGA, headphone and microphone jacks, gigabit Ethernet, SD card reader — there are only two USB 2.0 ports, down from the three to four we would normally expect from this category.
