Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P850-138

60% Toshiba Satellite P850-138 review
Source: Techradar English
In truth, it's hard to know where to stand with the Satellite P850. The price point bumps it out of budget territory and we feel that in a year or so, it could be suffering. However, the bonus of dedicated graphics, higher-than-average RAM and extra features like USB 3.0 and sleep-and-charge are excellent additions. All in all, a middle-of-the-road machine that is certainly worth checking out.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M:

Multiple models based on various chips of the Fermi generation. Specifically, the GT 630M exists in GF108/GF106/GF116 variants, but are all essentially renamed GeForce GT 540M or 555M GPUs. A 28nm GF117 variant exists as well with reduced power consumption.

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


2.7 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.
