Thoughts on Toshiba Satellite P755-S5380? Specs inside.

by JJBrad2323 / May 10, 2012 1:25 AM PDT

From online research, I seem to have narrowed down my options to:

Toshiba Satellite P755-S5380
HP Folio 13
HP Envy Sleekbooks or Pavillion m6 (June)

But, the Toshiba seems to meet my price point, have an optical drive, backlit keyboard and decent speed.

-Intel® Core™ i5-2430M processor
-Mobile Intel® HD Graphics, 64MB-1696MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory

-6GB DDR3 1333MHz memory
-640GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial ATA)
-Optical Drive, DVD SuperMulti (+/-R single layer) drive

-15.6" widescreen
-HD TruBrite® LED Backlit display with Intel® Wireless
16:9 aspect ratio, 1366x768 (HD), Supports 720p content

-Waves MaxxAudio® 3, harman/kardon® stereo speakers

I have a similar older model.

It's a prior gen CPU, Intel HD video and when folk ask about this genre of machine I keep it personal and compare my Lenovo y530.

It does the internet very well and I have played 1080p content on my big screen HDTV without troubles. So this is a very nice machine over all.

The only quibble could be if anyone wanted to play current video games. That's not a good idea on these models.

nor, do I do any graphic intensive work. I guess now the true test is to go to the store and playing with some keyboards!

And you bested me here. I should have written that test driving is best since the keyboard and screen are personal choices. For example I rarely worry about the track pad since I rarely use it. But it may matter to some.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
