Reviews for the Toshiba NB550D-109

80% Toshiba NB550D Review
Source: Stuff TV English
What holds it back from a full five stars is that while AMD has upstaged its rival and Toshiba has put together a perfect showcase for it, they’re just a little too late. Tablets such as the Asus Transformer or iPad 2 are the place to look for really interesting portable computers at the moment, and laptop prices have fallen so far that you can get a real machine for not a lot more. If you’re after a netbook, this is the one to buy. But that’s by no means a small ‘if’.

C-50: Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards. Due to the low clock speed, the CPU should be only as fast as a single core Atom CPU, but offers a faster integrated GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.3 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
