Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra Z50-A1503

70% Toshiba Tecra Z50-A1503
Source: PC Mag English
The Toshiba Tecra Z50-A1503 just meets ultrabook standards, even though the system isn't marketed as one. Compared with the business ultrabook Editors' Choice, the Dell Latitude e7440 Touch, it puts in a good showing, but the Dell system ultimately comes out ahead, due to its MIL-SPEC ruggedization, brighter and clearer In-Plane Switching (IPS) display, and touch screen. Among business-oriented desktop-replacement notebooks, the Tecra Z50-A1503 again puts in a good fight, but the reigning Editors' Choice Apple MacBook Pro ultimately holds on due to its higher-than-1080p HD resolution screen, better performance results on our multimedia benchmark tests, and its two additional hours of battery life. This makes the Tecra Z50-A1503 an attractive and powerful large-screen laptop, well in the pack, nipping at the heels of the Dell Latitude and Apple MacBook Pro.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics 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.  


4600U:

A Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
