Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X / 15.6-inch Laptops review
The Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X is a 15.6-inch laptop that comes with features perfect for multimedia fans. While it may not be the most impressive laptop in its class, its combination of affordable price and a complete feature set make it attractive. The Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X is available for $699, and it comes with a one-year warranty.

For $699, you get the Satellite A665-S5176X with a 2.1GHz Intel Core i3-2310M processor. This i3 processor is part of the second generation of Intel CPUs and offers solid performance. Granted, you won't get the same type of performance as a laptop with an i5 or i7 processor, but the performance is still up to snuff. Multitasking and performing tasks like checking email, web browsing, taking in multimedia, and light gaming should be no problem. With 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM, you also get a good amount of multitasking help.

The Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X's graphics are supported by an Intel HD 300 chip. This allows for light gaming, but it won't suffice for anyone seeking an all-out gaming laptop. There's a decent amount of storage in the form of a 500GB hard drive. Battery life is decent, with the 6-cell battery offering up over five hours of usage. Of course, those ratings are not always accurate, so expect less battery life when doing things like viewing videos or gaming. Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit is the operating system that comes pre-installed.

Beyond the basics, the Satellite A665-S5176X offers some nice extras. The highlight of those extras is the built-in Blu-ray drive that allows you to enjoy the latest in video technology and quality. For internet connectivity, there's fast 802.11n Wi-Fi. Fast media transfers are available thanks to a media reader with support for a wide variety of formats. You also get an integrated webcam and microphone for video chatting.

Toshiba coats the Satellite A665-S5176X in the company's typical Fusion X2 Finish. This charcoal color scheme looks good and has a nice modern edge to it. The laptop may not have the most solid build in its class, but it is far from cheap in its form, either. The Satellite A665-S5176X measures 15 inches wide by 10 inches deep by 1.2 inches thick.

The 15.6-inch widescreen TruBrite display has a resolution of 1,366 x 768. It's not the greatest display in the world, but it should suffice for most of your needs. The integrated Harmon Kardon speakers, on the other hand, are superb. They offer plenty of volume to ensure that you can watch movies and listen to music without the need for headphones.

The Satellite A665-S5176X's keyboard is large and features island-style keys. Typing on it is enjoyable, and you also get a separate number pad. Above the keyboard is a row of backlit controls for media, Wi-Fi, etc. Like the keyboard, the touch pad is large and responsive. Connectivity is one of the laptops strong points. Included in the laptop's connectivity options are a VGA port, a HDMI port, a USB 2.0 port, a USB 3.0 port, two eSATA/USB combo ports, an Ethernet port, and microphone and headphone jacks.Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X / 15.6-inch Laptops review
