Came loaded with Windows 7 64 bit
I am not fan of Windows 8 yet. This Toshiba Satellite C55-A5245 15.6 inch laptop is a deal at the price. Came with 4GB Ram. Opened the cover to look at the ram storage slots. There are 2 slots and only one is used with a single 4 GB Memory card. This laptop can expand up to 16 GB Ram.. Came loaded with Norton–I deleted it immediately and loaded Windows Essential Security which is fine and it is free. The satin black in trax horizon finish on this laptop is beautiful and somewhat like the Dell Matte finish that I have seen. So far, I am very pleased with this laptop.

Great for a budget/basic pc
By Amazon Customer
Ordered this and an additional 8 gb of Crucial memory (8GB DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) Notebook Module, CT102464BF160B — http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006YG8X9Y/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) for my mother who just wanted to surf the web, check email, use Skype and watch videos. So far, it’s been great (she’s had it a couple days). I did uninstall all the Norton stuff (3 things) and installed AVG Free (I’ve had hit and miss issues with Norton in the past, including slowness and other problems, so I’ve given up on using their stuff). Adding the memory was a breeze. It had 1 4gb stick in it and the open slot was in front/on top under the cover that was held in with one screw. Just inserted the additional 8 gb stick and both the bios and Windows recognized it immediately with no issues — giving it 12 gb of memory now. It’s super zippy now. We haven’t done any Windows updates (it comes with Windows 7, SP1), so hopefully, those won’t cause issues as they sometimes can.Overall, very happy with the system and what she can do. She watched a streaming music/tv show video the other day with zero issues (wirelessly, but she does have a great, 15mb+ high speed cable internet connection). And she keeps raving about how fast it is (disclaimer: the laptop it replaced was 7 years old, having hardware issues and was running Windows Vista).Update (8/27): Office 2013 Professional Pro installed and running super fast. Windows updates installed and running fast. VERY happy with this laptop so far.

Grandson’s new college computer
This is a terrific computer – our family actually has four of them – one for each member. I am not a computer expert just an on-going daily functional user. I especially like the speed. Toshiba has done a good job at removing the “junk” when you initially set it up. I only had to uninstall one programs, Norton, as we use webroot anti-virus software.Update: As I mentioned earlier we have 4 of these computers but now the hinges are breaking or coming loose on one. So after investigating I found it’s a common problem with Toshiba computers. They are selling them at a good price but there is a flaw in the manufacturing of the hinge area – and there have been lawsuits one in particular in 2010. I like the computer but be weary. I am off to the computer repair shop now to spend about $150 to repair.
