Questions & Answers for Toshiba - Satellite 15.6 Touch-Screen Laptop - Intel Core i5 - 8GB Memory - 750GB Hard Drive - Prestige Silver

Question

Is it portable and light enough for me to carry it throughout my day?

As a student it'll stay in my bag along with my text books, wondering if it'll really be that heavy.

maybe use a general text book as the units?

This laptop weighs approximately 5.3 pounds. Whether or not that's too heavy is really a person choice. If you are concerned about weight, you may want to check out one of our Ultrabook class laptops, like the E45t series.

Nope. You can get an external drive though, which I did and it works and look great! Could probably switch out the drives, but that may kill your battery life, Blu ray drives have that affect, it's why they aren't standard in laptops.

It's a fourth-gen Intel Core-i5, aka 'Haswell'. The processor is on the lower end of the Haswell i5s, meaning it has lower power consumption but also lower speed.

Question

How can I get more volume from speakers (on new Windows 8.1)?

The P55t-A5202 I bought at the end of November had Windows 8.1 pre-installed, and the speaker volume would not go up more than enough for a quiet room. But I had read great reviews about the sound quality (and volume). Toshiba phone support couldn't identify the problem. But...

FOUND SOLUTION: Today the Toshiba 'Service Station' app automatically informed me about a few updates, some related to Windows 8.1 compatibility, and after those were installed and rebooted -- voila -- the speakers now have much bigger volume range.

Sounds AWESOME now, as expected!

The updates do help, definitely! There's also settings you get to from the Metro/Home screen. Look for DTS and Toshibas own sound settings. They work together, and have various options including a 5 band eq. I nearly doubled the volume level and quality by playing with these for a bit.

(Answer already in question...)
Check updates with Toshiba 'Service Station' app and install "System Driver" update, maybe others -- related to Windows 8.1 compatibility -- and this seems to allow speakers to have a bigger volume range.
