Hey, wasn't this the same item on Tech WOOT for yesterday? Get original, at least a Dyson would have been fun to heckle.

[MOD: nope. Different model number. Different processor. And most important, different color.]

This space for rent.

Check out these comments on the L855D-S5117B when it was offered a few weeks ago.

Okay, so I missed out on yesterday's tech woot.
http://tech.woot.com/offers/toshiba-15-6-quad-core-laptop-6

Whats the real difference between the two? Less ram, different processor, smaller hard drive and graphics card.

I am referring to the better model.

If it weren't for the entertaining members of Woot, I would probably avoid this site, like the plague, because every time I turn around... Repeat!

Small correction to the currently-listed specs: the better model (L855D-S5117B) actually has two USB 3.0 ports.

[MOD: thanks! It's fixed in the specs now.]

LOL...everything you listed. These are APU's though. So no dedicated GPU. The graphics are integrated into the CPU.

Is Toshiba going out of business??? I am tired of seeing their laptops every day. I am surprised there is no "home" laptop and "wine" Toshiba and "kids" Toshiba laptop.. a whole woot experience with Toshiba..

@ADDICTED96, you don't provide a link but the only $279 Toshiba I see over there is not the same model. The Office Depot model uses the lower end E-series AMD processor.

If you're simply shopping price, OK, but that isn't the same laptop.

BTW, we really like Toshibas as well.

I bought a similar spec Asus (A8-4500M) recently and I've been pleased with it for the price. Upgrading the RAM to 8GB dual channel made a huge difference.

How much of a deal is this? (Like, how much am I probably saving by buying this on Woot/reconditioned instead of elsewhere/new?)

My Macbook just broke last night. I'm considering buying this on impulse.

It seems pretty awesome for the price -- I didn't realize you could get a non-netbook computer for under $500.

I reload my browser a few times thinking must be cache playing trick. Is there anything else worth selling other than Toshiba laptop?

More memory and more hard drive space. I would get the the other one or wait for something that's even better.

Machines like these, which are low-end for daily use, typically make excellent HTPCs. I think a lot of people forget that. You've got a graphics card / CPU which, even in the dual-core model, are more than capable of HD 1080p Netflix & YouTube / Flash / H.264 video, you've got built-in WiFi and Gig-E for streaming, and even the battery is advantageous as you've got a built-in UPS in case of a power outage or something.


Put it on a shelf in your A/V rack or your TV stand where it'll be somewhat ventilated, and you probably won't even hear the thing while playing videos.


By spec, it beats the Intel NUC and Gigabyte Brix models pretty easily for an HTPC setup unless you really need Thunderbolt ports.

This laptop looks just like that Windows 8 laptop/touch screen. I love the new technology from the past until now.
