Toshiba Satellite L50-C-1XP


1. Light weight and good choice of colours. 2. Keyboard is easy to use. 3. Has superb sound quality.

1. The battery life is only 4hr 10mins, pretty much different from what the company claims. 2. The laptop has sharper edges and is bigger than the most 15.6 inch laptops. I am unable to fit it in my 15.6 inch laptop bag! 3. The glossy finish easily...

Looks and design, speed of boot up. Has a good screen and handles graphics well.

Windows 10 and in particular it's browsers which are impossible to use due to all the pop ups and the fact that the blocker simply doesn't work

Toshiba Satellite L50-C-1XP


Bought for small business and is great. It turns on in seconds and once I got used to the new Windows 10 I loved it too. The setup I did by myself (a non techy 45 year old lady) and it was simple and worked first time!!

The keys I really like but are smallish and soft and perhaps not the best for chaps with big fingers.

Fast boot up, quality feel about it, good design. Windows 10.

Battery life rated at 7+ hours, but even with the battery saver on, I m only getting less than 3 hours before having to connect to the mains. DVD eject button fiddly to find.
