Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite M50-A-11L
Sharp new laptop. Toshiba's M50-A series aims at the large consumer market, choosing the right internals ranging from a high-performance Haswell-generation ULV CPU to a dedicated graphics card for gamers. That our test device still doesn't manage to reach one of the top spots when compared to its similarly specced competitors is mostly due to the chassis as well as the display.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
