Toshiba is one of Japan’s largest notebook manufacturer and hence, a lot of pressure is on them to compete internationally. The Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1DJ is a lower specification notebook of the series. Powered only by an Intel Core i3 4005U, the notebook is only capable of clocking up to 1.7 GHz with no option for Turbo. Despite that, this processor is already good enough for casual usage such as word editing, web browsing and playing mid-tier games.
The 15.6 inch display is also wide enough for comfortable viewing and has a resolution of 1366 by 768 giving clear and crisp picture quality. One nice thing about the Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1DJ is that it comes with quite a bit of hard disk space. With 750 GB SATA drive, users won’t have to worry about getting an external hard disk early on. However, it does not come with any SSD.
As for connectivity, the Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1DJ has an Ethernet port for wired connectivity and 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 for wireless connectivity. It comes with 3 USB ports, two 2.0 and one 3.0 port, a HDMI port and a built in card reader alongside the basic ports like headphone jack.
To top it off, the Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1DJ has a nice glossy full color finish which looks good. The specifications for this model may be lacking compared with others in its series, but this notebook targets light users who don’t want to be spending so much on specifications they won't fully utilize.
