Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-112

72% Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-112 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Under-dressed. There are plenty of low-priced office laptops. Toshiba now refreshes its bleak mass of Satellite Pro models with a new and thinner casing. Is taking a look worthwhile or is just old wine in new skins?
60% Toshiba Satellite Pro R50
Source: It Pro English
This no-nonsense business system doesn’t excel in any one area. The keyboard and trackpad are good, build quality is reasonable and its performance is average. This machine is capable of handling basic work tasks, and its sturdy design means it’ll be at home in the office or on the road. Dell’s system is lighter, with better ergonomics and battery life, and isn’t much more expens.

Model:

Beautifully simple and familiar; the Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-112 is a capable package. The full black chassis is reminiscent of older laptop models but looks professional and discreet just as its "Pro" tag suggest. This is a business class laptop with full sized island-style keyboard to ensure typing those long emails and reports a little bit easier. There are two OS variants users can choose from; Windows 7 Professional 64-bit or Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit.

Hardware on the laptop consists of an Intel Core i5-4210U processor clocked at 1.70 GHz, 4 GB DDR3L 1600 MHz RAM and an Intel HD Graphics 4400 GPU. The storage space is a 750GB hard drive, which will definitely be enough to store any work related software and content. On board is also a DVD super multi drive capable of reads and burns. Other features on the Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-112 are 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, a HD webcam, HDMI out port and a multi-format card reader.

Communication capability is very good with Bluetooth 4.0, Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC adapter and LAN connector. Even though the Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-112 is aimed at business class usage, audio quality is not compromised with stereo speakers powered by DTS sound technology. Battery life is awesome with a 4-cell Lithium-Ion pack capable of powering the laptop on long commutes.
