Model:

The Toshiba Satellite P50-A-K9M is a traditional old laptop, with a simple design. Textured silver covers the body in a combination of metal and plastic. It may not feel high end, but it’s sturdily built with quality hinges. At 2.2 kg it weighs in on the lighter side for a 15.6 inch machine. While it may not match up to an ultrabook’s ultra-portability, this machine will not be too taxing to carry around when travelling. The backlit keyboard is spacious, making it comfortable for long hours of typing and the touchpad seems like it will be easy to use, and comes with a handy little touch icon on the touchpad to disable it.

The Toshiba Satellite P50-A-K9M comes with an optical drive, and a standard combination of ports. It really shine in terms of performance. Its Intel Core i7-4500U clocks in at 1.8 GHz and with Turbo Boost up to 3.0 GHz. The power saving combination of an NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M with 2 GB of GDDR3 and Intel HD 4400 will allow for intensive games to be played at medium to low settings. The glossy 1920x1080 TN display of the Toshiba Satellite P50-A-K9M has been tested to have limited viewing angles and lackluster colors. Overall the Toshiba Satellite P50-A-K9M is a decent machine for work, and occasional play.

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.

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

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.  


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.

15.6":

2.2 kg:

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