Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7930
The lid of the Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7930 is glossy black and has some bronze stripes on it. It looks nice, but catches lots of fingerprints.
The bottom of the notebook has cooling grates and covers for the RAM and HDD bays. The battery is rather small looking for such a large notebook.
The right side of the notebook has the optical drive, power port, modem port and a pair of USB ports along with the Kensington lock port.
The back of the machine has nothing to see but the hinge for the screen.
The left side of the notebook is dominated by a large heat vent. This side also has the eSATA port, headphone and mic jacks, VGA out and RJ45 port. That long slot above the eSATA port looks like a PC Card slot, but it's a blank on this machine, or it's glued down.
The front edge of the notebook has the memory card reader, various indicator lights and an analog knob for volume.
The keyboard on the Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7930 is well spaced and has a full number pad. The track pad works well and you can see the pair of speakers the machine has as a sound system here, too.
The glossy screen is big and bright, but multimedia streaming isn't the rigs forte, as you will see later.
