Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-12U

60% Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-12U review
Source: Expert Reviews English
Overall, we're happy with the Toshiba Satellite Pro R50B. It offers good performance and sturdy build in a robust, plain chassis that doesn't stand out from the crowd. It does the basics well and while it may not set the pulse racing, it's good enough for any basic business and home uses. If you want something a little more exciting, the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 comes with an Intel Core i7 processor and a dedicated graphics card, yet costs a little less.

The Toshiba's good ergonomics, reasonable build quality and Core i5 processor make it a solid business notebook, but the R50 does little to stand out. The display is poor, battery life is average, and that Core i5 chip won't handle applications in the same way as the Dell's Core i7. That Dell is a better option if you've got more cash to spend, and the HP Envy 15 x360 is better-looking. Only buy the R50 if you need a mid-range machine and you're content without it turning heads.

This laptop isn’t designed to turn heads, and it won't – for all of its good build quality and reasonable dimensions, there’s no denying that it’s a dull-looking system. Toshiba’s latest Satellite Pro is designed as a do-it-all business machine, but it’s mediocre in most departments, from its middling power and battery life to its dull design and poor screen. Middle management rather than executive level.
