Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite C50-AI0110t

60% Review: Toshiba Satellite C50-A I0110t Touchscreen Laptop
Source: English
The Toshiba C50-A Toshiba Satellite C50-A I0110t exhibits decent performance in office applications and multimedia operations, but it falters a bit at multitasking. Its display quality is nothing to write home about, but it is nevertheless as responsive as you would expect of a Windows 8 capacitive multi-touch screen. The large 15.6"screen size makes it ideal as a desktop replacement, rather than an Ultrabook that can be carried around, as it is too heavy and bulky for that. The battery backup time ought to have been better with such a high-capacity 6-cell battery especially since there is no discrete graphics. Probably its only saving grace is its affordable price tag of Rs 40,656, which at this price you usually get a non-touchscreen laptop with similar or better configuration.

The rise of Windows 8 has caused a flourishing crop of touchscreen laptops to spring up. In the case of the Toshiba Satellite C50-AI0110t the 15 inch responsive touchscreen is one of the delightful features. It looks great, with a decently built polymer body that looks like aluminum, but surface collects fingerprints too well. The hinges are nice and sturdy, and will not flop around during touchscreen input. The Toshiba Satellite C50-AI0110t is not the most portable device out there, weighing in at 2.38 kg. The screen resolution of 1366x768 may be disappointing to some, but at this price point, it is decent enough. The full keyboard is comfortable to use, as is the responsive touchpad.

Powered by an Intel Core i3-2348M with 2.3 GHz, 4GB of RAM, and Intel's integrated HD Graphics 3000 GPU, the Toshiba Satellite C50-AI0110t can handle most light everyday tasks and casual gaming, but it is easily possible to slow the machine down with too many browser tabs and programs running. Considering the low performance, it is surprising that the battery does not last long. Expect approximately 5 hours of normal moderate to light use. At the end of the day, the Toshiba Satellite C50-AI0110t is a heavy, underpowered, yet cheap machine. The main selling point would be the touchscreen, but at this price range it would make more sense to go for a more powerful machine without touchscreen.
