60% Toshiba Satellite L655-S5096
Source: PC Mag English
Priced just under $500, the Toshiba Satellite L655-S5096 is more physically attractive than it is an outstanding performer, but if you don't need to do anything too taxing there's nothing wrong with this sleek-looking laptop.

70% Toshiba Satellite L650 review
Source: CNet English
The 15.6-inch Satellite L650 is part of Toshiba's 'everyday computing' range. In other words, it's a jack of all trades that should appeal to just about everybody. Our review model, the Satellite L650-12Q, uses an Intel Core i5-430M CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5145 GPU. It costs a quite reasonable £550 or thereabouts. The version of the Toshiba Satellite L650 that we reviewed, the L650-12Q, is a fabulous budget laptop. Its battery life is disappointing, but it will cope well with just about anything asked of it.

70% Toshiba Satellite L650-10G Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
This is another solid, well-made mainstream laptop from Toshiba, but a few niggles eat away at its value and attractiveness, and the standard carry-in warranty is disappointing. A few tweaks and this would be a very good laptop, but at present it's just 'good enough'.

A Bargain Buy. If you're looking for an inexpensive multimedia notebook, you'll usually have to be content with a weak graphics card. Not so with Toshiba's Satellite L650D-10H, which can show off with a Radeon HD 5650 at a price of around 600 euro.

Although the Satellite L650-1GD has few flaws and its performance cannot be faulted, it isn't quite as desirable as the likes of the Dell and the Packard Bell. Nevertheless, this is a highly usable mid-range laptop that won't disappoint.

Toshiba reviews


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

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5145: The 5145 is a renamed Mobility Radeon HD 4570 with slightly higher clock rates. Therefore it has no DirectX 11 support and a performance between the 4570 and 5470.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.

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

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650: Middle class DirectX 11 capable graphics card with a power consumption of about 15-20 Watt. Supports Eyevision (up to 6 monitors)

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


Intel Core i3:

350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

Intel Core i5:

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

480M: The Core i5-480M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.66-2.9 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

AMD Turion II:

P520: Entry level Dual-Core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. Offers a similar performance as a 2.1 - 2.3 GHz Core 2 Duo with 2 MB Level 2 Cache.

AMD Phenom II X3:

P820: Mobile 3-core CPU based on the desktop Athlon II X3. Due to the missing level 3 cache and the slow clock speed not really well suited for gamers.


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


2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.8 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


74.2%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
