Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite S50D-A-10G

60% Can quality components make up for this laptop's shortcomings?
Source: Techradar English
The Toshiba has its issues, then, but none of them are deal breakers if you're searching for a budget laptop – rather, they're things that just have to be accepted. If you want a system for general computing and light gaming and you'd rather concentrate on processing power, it's an ideal buy thanks to the combination of an AMD APU and discrete graphics core. If screen quality or battery life are more important, though, look elsewhere.
