Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra Z50-A-11H
Source: Expert Reviews
The Tecra Z50-A-11-H is a competent business-orientated ultraportable, and its battery life is great. The price you pay for this longevity is the sub-standard screen, which has too low a resolution for a laptop of this size, and a touchpad that's hard to avoid striking by accident. If you're after an all-rounder ultraportable laptop, you're better off with the Best Buy-winning Asus Zenbook UX302, while business users are more likely to be won over the Fujitsu Lifebook S904.

The Toshiba Tecra Z50-A-11H is one of Toshiba's attempts at ultrabooks. Despite only being 20mm thick, the laptop does not feel fragile at all, due to the magnesium chassis. Toshiba has boldly commented that the laptop even survived a 76 cm drop.
Furthermore, the Toshiba Tecra Z50-A-11H has a rather wide range of ports for an ultrabook. First off, it has 4 USB ports in total with 3 being USB 3.0. It also has VGA and HDMI ports for display purposes. The device comes with a dual core i5 processor providing the necessary processing power for basic needs. It also comes with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD drive, which boosts up performance, but sacrifices storage space.
Sadly, the 15.6 inch screen only has a resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels. Pictures and graphics will still be clear but not fantastic. Colors and contrast are also unsatisfactory. However, since the screen doesn't need that much power, the battery life of this laptop is pretty amazing. A single charge in battery saving mode can provide up to 14 hours of usage.
All in all, the Toshiba Tecra Z50-A-11H is made to fit the needs of businessmen. It is light, portable, useful for presentations and is decently fast. It is not suitable for gamers and heavy users.
