Model: The Toshiba Satellite P50-C186 is a luxurious laptop that prides itself on premium build quality and hardware. Made to blend seamlessly into the urban surrounding, the device looks professional and weighs in at just 2.2 kg. The metallic silver chassis is offset by a frameless black tile keyboard with good typing ergonomics. There is a large off-center touchpad for easy navigation. Display on the Toshiba Satellite P50-C186 is a 15.6 inch IPS FHD widescreen panel with LED backlight. This display works well even under brightly lit environment due to a brightness of 300 nit.

Audio quality is also impressive with the Harmon/Kardon speakers. The Windows 10 system is Cortana optimized and utilizes the HD webcam with dual array microphones well. On-board is an Intel Core i7-6500U dual-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz, 8 GB of DDR3L RAM, an Nvidia GeForce 930M GPU with 2 GB of VRAM, and a 1 TB HDD. The Toshiba Satellite P50-C186 comes with a DVD-SuperMulti Drive, three USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI out, Bluetooth 4.0, Intel WiDi, and various software to increase productivity. Battery life is around 7 hours and is provided by a lithium ion cell rated at 45 Wh.

NVIDIA GeForce 930M: Maxwell based lower mid-range graphics card. The card is based on the GeForce 840M with 384 shaders but reduced core clock speed. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these 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.  
6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

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

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.

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.


40%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
