Background and Identification
The Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5084 model was released in 2011 by Toshiba as part of their C650 series.
First released in the summer of 2008, this laptop was geared toward those going to school. However, poor battery and performance stopped it from being one of the better choices. It's low price and similarity to the size of the MacBook line ended up being its main selling points.
Identifying this laptop is a matter of reading the label located on the bottom. Look for the shiny one that says "Toshiba" at the top. If you are looking at the correct guide then it will read "Satellite U405D-S2902." If not, then you're in the wrong place. Try typing what you find on the sticker into the search bar at the top of this page.
