Intel did a very good job with the Centrino platform. Regarding battery life, with light activity I was about to squeeze nearly 4 hours of life out of the battery. Brightness is especially atrocious and at full brightness is only half as bright as say a Sony XBrite screen. With a simple no frills design and built-in wireless and DVD burner this notebook is certainly a useful machine, but at the end of the day the price you pay for the features you get and lack of a dedicated graphics card makes the A55 a bit of a lackluster in its class. The design is different from most Satellite notebooks and is quite attractive. Toshiba laptops usually come with pretty decent screens, but this model really skimped in this department.
