76% Review Toshiba Satellite M50-A-11L Notebook | Notebookcheck
Sharp new laptop. Toshiba's M50-A series aims at the large consumer market, choosing the right internals ranging from a high-performance Haswell-generation ULV CPU to a dedicated graphics card for gamers. That our test device still doesn't manage to reach one of the top spots when compared to its similarly specced competitors is mostly due to the chassis as well as the display.

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.

70% Toshiba Satellite M50-A-11C review A powerful mid-range laptop - but it needs a little more polish
Source: Techradar English
The M50 falls down when it comes to its screen quality and physical design, but it's not as if its rivals are any better in this regard – every other machine here makes do with a 1,366 x 768 panel of middling quality, and none offer much more than typically plasticky construction. The Toshiba, instead, makes up ground in benchmarks: thanks to a Haswell processor and discrete core it's faster than any other system here. It's a little more expensive than the competition, but if you prize power over build quality then it's better value than the competition – and the added speed will see this machine last longer, too.

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.

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

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

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.


2.1 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.

2.2 kg:


76%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
