Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite M50-A-11Q

80% Toshiba Satellite M50-A-11Q review: worth considering if you're on a tight budget and looking for a good, basic laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
The M50-A-11Q provides very respectable performance, battery life and build quality at a competitive price. It's not perfect, and the screen's limited viewing angles are a clear weakness. Even so, it's well worth considering if you're on a tight budget and looking for a good, basic laptop that can handle most day-to-day computing tasks for less than £500.
