80% Toshiba Satellite U50T
Source: It Pro English
Most Ultrabooks have small screens and limited native connectivity so they’re not ideal for business use. Toshiba’s Satellite U50T aims to be the exception - featuring a 15in display, 21mm chassis and a comprehensive set of connections. The Satellite U50T provides good mid-range performance at a competitive price. It got good connectivity, but there is a major trade-off when it comes to screen quality.

80% Toshiba U50T-A-10F review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Retailing at £700, it’s pretty hard to fault the Toshiba U50T-A-10F provided that this is definitely what you’re looking for: a 15.6-inch Ultrabook is unusual, and many will see that as negating the point of the format. But the extra space is put to good use, even if the screen is weak and low resolution -- a battery that lasts over seven hours and charges very quickly is something that any laptop buyer should look for.
