I saw a good deal at Best Buy for a Toshiba laptop at $229, but it's a Intel Celeron processor @ 1.8 ghz with 4 GB of RAM. Are the Intel Celeron processors still consider bad? Is Toshiba a good brand for laptops, like it won't break down easily overtime?

I just want to replace my Dell Latitude D620, and I want a laptop for internet browsing and word processing and watch 1080p videos without any fps problems. Is this a good enough laptop for that?

Really wouldn't recommend a celeron. If you can wait a couple weeks, get a laptop on black friday.

That laptop is probably one of the worst laptops you can buy today but you can't expect much at that kind of pricepoint.

My brother had one that died after three years. He was apparently happy enough with his purchase that he decided to get another Toshiba laptop. Hasn't had any problems I know of after about four years of his abuse.

Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

Celeron is just a brand label. It denotes the weakest Intel lineup. (Order is Celeron, Pentium, i3, i5, and i7).

The particular Toshiba you're thinking of is an Ivy Bridge, a step above the weakest Celeron. It's perfectly usable if all you'll do with it is web browse, e-mail, and word processing. The keyboard's actually not terrible for that price point.

Toshiba insists on using small trackpads with large trackpad buttons. The buttons make it easy to consistently click, but the low surface area of the trackpad makes it difficult to use. Not a problem if you're a mouse person, of course.

My bro had one and I don't recommend you get one. They don't tend to be powerful for gaming purposes. Within 2 years of use it just kept BSOD until he gave up and passed it onto a friend who got it repaired and owned it.

I work at best buy. That is literally the worst laptop we sell. I'm guessing it's the C55-A5300? Move your budget to like $300 or $350....or just get a tablet.
