Reviews for the Toshiba NB550D-109
Source: Stuff TV
What holds it back from a full five stars is that while AMD has upstaged its rival and Toshiba has put together a perfect showcase for it, they’re just a little too late. Tablets such as the Asus Transformer or iPad 2 are the place to look for really interesting portable computers at the moment, and laptop prices have fallen so far that you can get a real machine for not a lot more. If you’re after a netbook, this is the one to buy. But that’s by no means a small ‘if’.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
C-50: Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards. Due to the low clock speed, the CPU should be only as fast as a single core Atom CPU, but offers a faster integrated GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
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.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

Toshiba is not present in the smartphone sector. As laptop manufacturer, Toshiba still had 6.6% of world market share in 2014. However it fell to only 1.6% in 2016, making only for the 8th place.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
