The Toshiba Satellite C75D is an affordable, big screen laptop. It's ideal for those with tight budgets who want a 17" and a big keyboard, but don't need heavy duty computing power. The C75D runs on a 1.5GHz quad core AMD A4-5000M Jaguar APU (APU is AMD's acronym for a combined CPU and graphics processor) with Radeon HD 8330 graphics. Don't get too excited by those cores, the A4 in this machine is more often found in netbook class machines and it's perfectly fine for web browsing, playing HD videos and working with MS Office, but it isn't well suited to video editing, number crunching spreadsheets with thousands of rows or playing demanding 3D games like Battlefield 3 or even the SIMS 3.

The machine has a roomy keyboard (sorry, not backlit at this price), a decent though small trackpad and a DVD burner. A 500 gig 5400 RPM hard drive is standard along with 6 gigs of DDR3 RAM. It has a full size HDMI port, VGA, 3.5mm audio, 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports and an SD card reader. The Satellite C75D has a 720p webcam, built-in mic and stereo speakers. The 17.3" 1600 x 900 TN display has decent resolution but viewing angles are quite narrow. Colors are muted and contrast is poor; par for the course in a laptop priced under $500. This machine runs Windows 8 64 bit, but it does not have a touch screen.

Though a bit on the plain side in terms of looks, the C75D is relatively light at 5.9 lbs. At 1.3" thick, it's middle of the road in terms of thickness and the included charger is quite small and light. The laptop has a 45Wh battery that's removable. Battery life is middling at 4 hours. There's an access door on the bottom should you wish to upgrade RAM or the hard drive. The Satellite C75D has single band WiFi and 10/100 Ethernet but no Bluetooth.
