Toshiba Satellite C75-A-13N review

 

This 17.3in laptop is powerful for its price, but its keyboard isn't the best

Toshiba Satellite C75-A-13N

 

I like the number and caps locks light. Also like the large keyboard numbers and letters. The i3-4000m processor is really quick. Overall I am pleased with this laptop.

Battery like a little dissapointing but is ok. Speakers just about ok.

Toshiba Satellite C75-A-13N

 

Good Machine with loads of disc space. Great Value. Hope it is as reliable as my last Toshiba laptop. 5 years faultless service!

Can't get it to play DVDs, but may well be my error. Battery health is flagged up as poor but seems to be improving with each charging cycle.

Toshiba Satellite C75-A-13N

 

Great specs for the money. Good battery life.

Sound quality from speakers is awful/ Arrives with Windows 8.1 which regularly makes you want to throw the thing out of the window :-) (hardly Toshiba's fault!)
