Toshiba NB550D

 

With AMD Fusion innards in an attractive and ergonomic shell, Toshiba's premium yet affordable 10.1in netbook makes for a strong contender.

Great speakers ; Stylish, classy design ; Soft-touch lid and palm rests ; Full HD video and HDMI ; Good build quality

Only 1GB of RAM ; No USB 3.0 ; Slow CPU

Like the NB520, Toshiba's NB550 is very attractive andwell-built. Its AMD Fusion innards give it the ability to handle Full HD videoon and off-line as well as providing an HDMI-output, strengths which put it astep above most budget netbooks. Other...

Toshiba NB550D review

 

There's just one important thing to know about Toshiba's NB550D. Forget the lightweight, slimline build and 10 hour battery life. They're good, but find us a netbook that you can't say that about these days and we'd be impressed. What makes the NB550D...

Toshiba NB550D-10G mini

 

One of the first notebooks with AMD's new “APU” - that's a CPU and discrete GPU combined into one - packed into the case of a netbook that's also crammed with extras like Harman Kardon speakers, the Toshiba NB550 mini is a bit different. Is it an...

The AMD processor and graphics combination makes for a speedier netbook, battery life is good and the audio quality is excellent for this size of notebook

Slow hard drive and a basic version of Windows cramp the NB550D's style, the speaker placement in the cramped netbook form factor is a little awkward

Like the slow hard drive, getting Windows Starter is an example of the way the NB550 isn't a particularly well balanced system. Putting something more powerful than the Atom into a netbook form factor reveals that there are other disadvantages to the...

Toshiba NB550D-10G review

 

It's been about three years now since the first netbook appeared. In the early days of these mini laptops' popularity, we saw some interesting developments around the idea of a fast booting, small screen laptop, available to buy for just a couple of...

The application of AMD’s new chipset energizes this otherwise conventional 10in netbook. For anyone looking for a relatively affordable 10in laptop with low-resolution screen that can run Windows subjectively decently fast, the Toshiba NB550D-10G would...

Toshiba NB550D review

 

We were very impressed with AMD Fusion, but apart from its impressive speakers the NB550D is a fairly unadventurous netbook.

Toshiba NB550D review

 

The Toshiba NB550D is a netbook unlike any of the netbooks that have come before it. It has a 10.1in glossy screen like most other netbooks on the market - but instead of running an Intel Atom processor, the Toshiba NB550D is based on the AMD Fusion...

The Toshiba NB550D feels sturdy, looks good, it's light and it has good speed for a netbook. The HDMI port should make it appeal to users who want something small that they can plug into their TVs to watch streaming video or downloads. Note that we did...

Toshiba NB550D review

 

AMD Fusion takes its next step in the form of the first netbook to boast an Atom-challenging Brazos APU

In fact, our only complaint is that it’s taken so long for AMD to produce something competitive that Intel has barely had to innovate. The Brazos invasion should change that.

Toshiba NB550D netbook

 

Toshiba NB550 netbook review: AMD Fusion-powered netbook with HDMI port

HDMI port, good performance for a netbook, good speakers, good build quality and looks

Battery life not great, video playback was a little choppy on a Full HD television, touchpad texture was a little too rough, very reflective screen

The Toshiba NB550D netbook uses the AMD Fusion platform to supply good overall performance and better-than-usual multimedia features for a netbook. Its HDMI port allows users to connect it directly to a big-screen TV and its Harmon Kardon speakers...
