Modest power consumption, Decent cooling system
The recommended retail price of 799 Euros (~$1032) for the Toshiba Satellite L850-153 is not entirely fair. In our opinion, the cheap synthetic case makes a poor impression due to various workmanship errors (snappy Esc key, unclean edges, poorly screwed flaps and loose USB ports).
The extremely sensitive glossy finish is another issue. The notebook is covered with dust and fingerprints after an hour of use.
Nicely curved casing and polished lid
The Toshiba Satellite Pro L850 lacks the pace of some budget notebooks, and the screen and input device are trimmed to the budget price. Triumphs for the Satellite Pro include its large hard drive and usable speakers, while battery life proved quite usable too. For a business on a budget, it will handle the basics.
Discrete AMD Radeon graphics
What you get in the Toshiba Satellite L850 is a 15.6in laptop that can be used for a little bit of everything. It has a good CPU and discrete graphics, and it ships with plenty of internal storage space. However, its keyboard can feel cramped thanks to a very small left palm rest area and we also think that its asking price is a little too high compared to the competition.
Battery Life is one area where the Toshiba L850 really disappoints
At Rs. 55,000, the Toshiba Satellite L850 is slightly cheaper than the Asus K55VM and you also get an operating system bundled. However, you will have to sacrifice battery life and a bit of gaming performance, not to mention a smaller hard drive. For this reason, we would recommend the Asus K55VM over the Toshiba L850. If you don't want to spend on an OS right now, then simply download and use Microsoft's Windows 8 Release Preview for free, till Windows 8 is officially launched.
Performance does justice to the potential
The Toshiba L850 is one solid desktop replacement category laptop. Huge doses of power on tap, with graphics performance that only the Nvidia GT630M in the Acer Aspire V3 betters. Your choice is simple. If you are on a budget, consider the Acer Aspire V3. However, for better raw system performance, the Core i7 on the Satellite L850 is the one to consider.
Boasts solid specifications
Toshiba's Tecra R950-11F looks like a dull business laptop, but its plastic exterior is hard-wearing and it's got the fundamentals covered extremely well: a reasonable screen, great keyboard and mouse, and enough power inside to get the job done. Dell and Lenovo offer workstations that do more, but not for at £772 exc VAT.
Decent price for a business laptop, Good selection of ports
The Toshiba Tecra R950-11F is more of a standard business workhorse than a ground-breaking showcase of new technology. Its sober appearance hides few surprises. But the features and performance are both more than adequate for most business users, and this model lacks the hefty price of early Tecras even more than the R940-1CW. It's not a budget model, and the standard one-year warranty is a tad meagre for a business notebook.
DVD drive, easy maintenance, smartcard reader, decent sized display
Toshiba's Tecra R950 is essentially a replacement for a desktop PC. As such, it cannot match models such as the new ultrabooks for lightweight portability, but it does offer greater comfort, good connectivity, plus better security and easier maintenance for corporate buyers.
Very Affordable, USB 3.0 Port, Keyboard With Numeric Keypad
For consumers looking at a very low cost laptop for basic computing needs, the Toshiba Satellite C855 is surprisingly affordable at a good deal less than $400. It may not have as high of performance or as much storage as some of the competition, but it makes up for this by having some good battery life along with a USB 3.0 port for better high speed external storage expansion.
Generous RAM, Decent battery life
The Toshiba Satellite C855 is a solid-but-uninspiring laptop. Its design is inoffensive but unlikely to excite and build quality is a little patchy. What turns us off the most, though, is the mediocre keyboard. The C855 has enough power for most casual tasks, but it's not the best if you're going to be doing a lot of typing.
Quite Good for an Entry Level Computer
I personally like the computer a lot for its speed and performance. I find it as an inexpensive option for people looking for a computer for basic tasks like word processing, surfing the web, videochatting, etc.
Windows 8 is not as bad once you get used to it. You don't get the red X to close the programs; now, you drag the top of the window to the lower left corner and the program will close. I got used to it after 2-3 hours of using it + watching a tutorial on YouTube.
Matte Display, Good Performance, USB 3.0
The Toshiba Satellite Pro can be recommended solely for the office. It offers more than enough performance capability for all common usage scenarios and provides a large, satisfying display. This recommendation is restricted to office use due to dissatisfaction with the keyboard. Prolific writers would be rather unhappy with the C870's keyboard and should look to the Samsung Series 3 305E7A-S03DE instead. Anyone who seldom or never writes long texts would be able to live with the keyboard.
The Toshiba Satellite L745-S4130 has a 14-inch display that is backed up with good performance thanks to the Intel Core i3 CPU and 4GB of RAM. While it is slightly thicker than some other 14-inch laptops, it has a really great-looking display that makes it stand out from the rest.
pretty awesome ultraportable laptop
Toshiba delivers a great machine with a few annoying flaws. Toshiba delivers a great machine with a few annoying flaws. HP's Envy 17 is a robust, media-centric desktop replacement that's svelte enough to lug around if you need a large screen on the go. Its overall performance is pedestrian, but otherwise this laptop offers you a lot of bang for your buck. Above-average sound, performance, and gaming highlight this otherwise staid midsize laptop.
Sep 17 2010 - Toshiba's Portege R700-S1320 certainly offers a high level of performance in an extremely compact package. With a standard class laptop processor, high performance hard drive, eSATA port, ExpressCard slot and built-in DVD burner it certainly isn't lacking in features. Combine this with some great battery life and it is a great ultraportable for travels who don't want to sacrifice performance.
The Portege R700-184 packs a decent amount of performance into a thin-and-light package, and should prove a good companion to a road warrior, especially with its built-in 3G modem. However, it is not as sturdy as some laptops and, discounting the Core i5 processor, seems pricey for the specification.
capable gaming system
Above-average sound, performance, and gaming highlight this otherwise staid midsize laptop. Above-average sound, performance, and gaming highlight this otherwise staid midsize laptop. This laptop is very stylish, especially for the price, but it sacrifices performance for sexiness. The design of the Envy 14 seems clearly inspired by the MacBook Pro, which is a good thing. This is a powerful, attractive laptop at a reasonable price.
