Versatile. Toshiba offers a well manufactured 15.6 inch notebook with adequate performance, a vast scope of interfaces, a matt display and good battery life for around 999€. This Satellite R850-127 can either be seen as a multimedia or a business laptop.
Toshiba Satellite R850 review
Source: Gadgetmix English
We have reviewed Toshiba Satellite L745D few days back, let us take a closer look at another Satellite, the R850. Unless you’re planning on playing the latest games, the Satellite R850 is a very capable machine, offering a superior computing experience thanks largely to its SSD. In addition, some market-leading tweaks to the touchpad give superb browsing.

Toshiba reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

AMD Radeon HD 6450M: Seymore-PRO based entry level graphics card with Eyefinity+ support and clocked somewhere betwen 480 and 800MHz.

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


Intel Core i5:

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

Intel Core i3:

2310M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.1 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).


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.


2.4 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.

2.5 kg:


77.25%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
