Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite S875-S7242

70% Toshiba Satellite S875-S7242

The Toshiba Satellite S875-S7242 isn't the slimmest or most portable laptop available on the market, but it packs solid hardware into an affordable package while pumping out admirable benchmark scores that hold their own against more expensive systems. For the user who's looking for a budget-friendly desktop replacement that won't stray too far from the desk (or, more appropriately, the power outlet), it's an overall solid choice. Otherwise, users with a bit more cash to spare, though, should opt for the Editors' Choice HP Envy 17 (2012), whose better battery life and more potent feature set, like a true 1080p display and Blu-ray player, justify the extra $150.

The Toshiba's software bundle is unremarkable, unless you count a scandalously short 30-day trial of Norton Internet Security as remarkable: Windows 7 Home Premium, Google Chrome, Microsoft Office Starter 2010 (the ads-included, some-features-excluded versions of Word and Excel), and a slew of house-brand utilities for system maintenance. A one-year parts-and-labor warranty protects your investment.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

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

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


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.  


3610QM:

An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.8 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
