We’re hard-pressed not to recommend the Toshiba Satellite Fusion 15 after using it. This notebook delivers a respectable combination of form and function at a manageable price point. First, the bad news: the Fusion 15 could use some reinforcement in its build quality, as its thin chassis was too easy to flex. We’d furthermore like to see better battery life; the Fusion 15 can go five to six hours on a charge at the most, which isn’t impressive by today’s standards. Lastly, it almost goes unsaid that the Fusion 15 is big and bulky in tablet mode.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
