The Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049 is a budget notebook PC available exclusively through Best Buy. It shares identical styling to the rest of the C650 series and its hardware specifications are identical to the Satellite C655-S5047. It hosts an Intel Celeron 900 single core processor, Intel GMA 4500M integrated graphics, and a 15.6'' 1366x768 LCD display. Other components include, 2GB of DDR3 ram, 250GB hard drive, and a DVD super-multi drive. Connectivity options consist of wireless b/g/n card, 10/100 ethernet, and media card reader. Other features include multi-touch track pad, two USB 2.0 ports, and a 6 cell battery that is advertised to last up to 4.58 hours. What is different from the S5049 when compared to the S5047 is lack of built in webcam and microphone. With its low price and basic set of components and excellent battery life, the Satellite C655-S5049 makes for a good option for home users and students alike though the C655-S5047 might be a better option at the same price with an added webcam and built in microphone.
