60% Toshiba Satellite L55t-A5290 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The 15.6-inch Toshiba Satellite L55t-A5290 ($713 at Staples) features a touch-screen display, loud audio, and a fantastic keyboard and clickpad. However, the design on this laptop looks dated, and you'll have to settle for a third-generation Intel CPU. The $699 Acer Aspire M5 is a better deal because it offers an aluminum lid and deck, Intel's new Haswell architecture, and nearly double the battery life.

60% Toshiba Satellite L55Dt-A5253 review: This 15.6-inch budget laptop does well on benchmarks but has some physical drawbacks
Source: PC World English
The Satellite L55Dt-A5253 is a well-built laptop that delivers good performance, but many of its drawbacks don’t show up in its benchmark numbers: It’s weighs 5.6 pounds, its off-axis viewing is abysmal, and it has third-rate wireless networking capabilities. Clearly, it’s not the best notebook in this collection, but it’s still a decent value.

50% Toshiba Satellite L50DT-A-10C review: an AMD-powered budget laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
We like the idea behind AMD’s APUs, but the low-power chip included in this laptop just isn’t quick enough – we wish Toshiba had used a full-power Richland part instead. Elsewhere, the lifeless screen, weak battery and poor keyboard all disappoint. Intel-based machines have more speed and higher quality for similar prices.

90% Toshiba Satellite L50T-A-130 review: an adequate mid-range laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
Looking back over this review, we do seem to have used the word ‘adequate' rather a lot. That pretty much sums up the L50T-A-130, as it's adequate in most respects but – apart from the beefy speakers – really doesn't stand out in any particular way. Cut the price by £100 and it'd be a good budget offering, but at £649.00 it may struggle to compete with its many mid-range rivals.

Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1DJ

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.

60% Toshiba's latest is a good looking mid-range notebook
Source: Techradar English
This Toshiba machine initially impressed with good looks and a light, slim construction, but it falls behind the competition in key areas. Its Core i5 chip isn't as fast in applications or in games as competitors, and its ergonomics and battery life aren't great either. Toshiba's AMD-powered S50D has a similarly poor screen, but its better power levels and cheaper price (£480; about $799, AU$860) mean it's a superior option to Toshiba's Intel-equipped L50.

Overall, the Toshiba Satellite L50 wasn't as fast as we'd hope it would be. The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 is the better choice if you can afford it, as it provided better performance and had a superior keyboard and touchpad.

80% Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1DV review: slim and light budget laptop offers decent performance
Source: PC Advisor English
It certainly has its flaws, but a healthy price cut means that the L50 looks better value for money. It's not particularly fast but it can handle basic computing work perfectly well, and the slimmer, lighter design of this new model means that the Toshiba L50 is a bit more portable than most of its low-cost rivals. Its larger battery doesn't help its runtime and in benchmark tests it's slower than last year's model despite taking essentially the same components.

Toshiba reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

AMD Radeon HD 8400:

An integrated GCN-based GPU with 128 shader units and no dedicated VRAM. It is typically clocked at 600 MHz and paired with AMD Richland A6 "Kabini" processors.

AMD Radeon HD 8510G: In AMD Richland processors (ULV A8-series) integrated graphics card without dedicated graphics memory.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

AMD Radeon R7 M260: Mid-range graphics card based on the GCN architecture.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

AMD A-Series:

A6-5200: Quad-core APU for low-end laptops, codenamed Kabini. Based on the Jaguar architecture. Integrates an Radeon HD 8400 graphics card.

A8-5545M: Low-voltage quad-core processor with only two FPUs and an integrated Radeon HD 8510G graphics card.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

3630QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core i3:

4005U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz without Turbo Boost support. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Pentium:

N3530: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at 2.2 - 2.6 GHz and an Intel HD Graphics GPU.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.2 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.6 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


66.56%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
