Toshiba satellite s55-A5274 - Decent laptop for the price?

Hi, I am a highschool student looking to buy a laptop that will incorporate all my needs for a relatively low price - which I know is hard to come across. I would like it to be powerful and preferably fast with multitasking. And I would also like to be able to play some games on it (obviously a want not a need).

So I came across this guy: toshiba satellite s55-A5274, which happens to be at a pretty good sale price on newegg. Now I am no Specs expert, honestly I don't know the rating system of much of what is out there. But from what I can see here, the specs on this thing arent half bad? Please tell me if I am on the right track here.

-Intel i5 processer
-Nvidia Geforce 740 Dedicated Gfx
- 750gb memory

To be completely honest, I am not sure what most other information about this is.

If anyone has this laptop or can tell me if this is a good buy Id really appreciate it! If not, maybe an alternative with a reasonable price?

Many thanks!

Wave2020, welcome to the windows 7 forum

What is the price of the Toshiba that your looking at?

I saw one at Costco for $699 that has 16gigs ram, 1 gig hard disk and is an I7
What os does it come with.?

I personally have had nothing but Toshiba's since the 286 days for laptops.
No problems so far, knocking on wood.
Check my system spec's for what I have.

I bought a Toshiba Satellite in 2008. Nothing but good things to say except...lousy sound on little tiny speakers so have a good pair of earphones. These Toshibas may not be top of the line but they are great value for the buck...

Heyya Daddy mate having some dealings with Toshys over theyears first the are not as good as they used to be but still not bad.Personally I would get extra warranty with it for an extra year but of coursethat's more expense but from experience absolutely essential.

As Rich says a tad more RAM would have been nice but it isok the i5 will be just the ticket:)
