Currently, Fry’s is offering it at lowest price of $200-$228 approx.  The laptop is also available at Amazon.

The laptop allows you document processing, web browsing, social networking and emailing. Resource hungry applications like video encoding, AutoCAD and Adobe Photoshop CS6 will hardly run on this machine.  This machine is not suitable for PC gaming either.   Satellite C55-B5299 runs on Windows 8.1 with Bing, which is a low cost OS from Microsoft and has helped in keeping the price of laptop low.

Toshiba Satellite S75-A7111 With Windows 7 Professional

Toshiba Satellite S75-A7111 is an attractive laptop that offers great performance for its price but lack of faster hard drive or SSD may let down a few of the buyers. Equipped with Intel Core i7-4700MQ Processor and 16GB memory, it could be a great budget grade professional laptop. The laptop runs on Windows 7 professional operating system. The price of this laptop is $800 approx (On sale at Costco). If you are looking for a laptop to run CAD, Adobe Photoshop and similar applications, this could be a good choice, especially if you are on a budget. Toshiba S75-A7111 offers admirable performance when it comes to CPU-based rendering, data compression and video transcoding.  Though missing dedicated graphics may disappoint some of the users yet improved Intel HD 4600 graphics can run almost all PC games.  However, you may not able to run all games in high details and settings. Satellite S75-A7111 comes with 1TB storage, which means ample storage, but a faster hard drive or hybrid hard drive would have enhanced overall performance of the laptop. It also comes with massive 16GB memory.  All necessary ports and connectivity features are present in this machine. Battery life, however, is average. Here is a brief review about specifications and performance of the laptop.

Specification and Performance of Toshiba Satellite S75-A7111

Toshiba Satellite S75-A7111 Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor operates with 2.4 GHz frequency and core frequency can boost up to 3.4 GHz. Due to Hyperthreading Technology, 4 cores together can handle 8threads at a time. It’s a great CPU for power demanding applications. It comes with integrated Intel HD 4600 graphics. Unfortunately the graphics is the only graphics solution for this laptop. Muscled with 16GB memory, it can run games like The Elder Scrolls Online, Titanfall, X-Plane 10.25, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 in low to medium resolution and setting. The laptop offers reasonable performance for photo editing, video editing and architectural applications.

The 17.3” screen comes with 1600X 900 pixels resolution which supports up to 900p video playback but cannot display 1080p contents. Those who want to use the laptop for video editing, 3D modelling and also want to use high resolution screen, this could be disappointing.

Satellite S75-A7111 comes with 1TB hard drive which means ample storage but again, as it is a professional grade laptop, slow hard drive may create a bottleneck while running disk-intensive applications.

It comes with a wide range of ports as well. User will get three USB ports (two of which are USB 3.0), VGA and HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet port, a multi-format card reader, a DVD rewriter and separate headphone and microphone jacks. One of the USB 3.0 ports also supports Sleep and Charge, so you can charge external devices on this laptop. Network connectivity is supported by Gigabit Ethernet port and 802.11 b/g/n. Bluetooth connectivity is missing though.

As informed earlier, battery life is average. The 6 cell 4800mAh lithium ion battery offers up to 4 hours of battery life.

Pros of Satellite S75-A7111

Ample memory and Storage

Budget laptop with strong features

Cons of Satellite S75-A7111

Low resolution screen

No SSD or faster hard drive.
