Toshiba Satellite L500-19Z review

 

The L500's screen is impressive and the numeric keypad's large keys would suit number-crunchers, but there are better value alternatives.

Toshiba L500-19Z review

 

Toshiba's Satellite L500-19Z has a smart, wavy pinstripe pattern on the glossy lid, and a silver keyboard panel. The 15.6in 16:9 display means there's enough room to squeeze in a numeric keypad next to the keyboard without compromising on the layout of...

Toshiba L500-11V review

 

Despite the budget price, there's a lot of laptop on offer. With the Toshiba L500-11V, Toshiba has elected to use the latest 16:9 aspect ratio version of a 15in screen, actually measuring 15.6in on the diagonal. This leads to a display 12mm wider and...

Toshiba Satellite Pro L500 1D6 review

 

Can Toshiba's 15.6in laptop meet the demands of business users? We review the Toshiba Satellite Pro L500 1D6 to find out.

Toshiba Satellite L500D

 

Toshiba bundles both 64- and 32-bit versions of Vista in the recovery partition. Excellent features for the price.

Hot air vent on left-hand side. No gigabit Ethernet or Bluetooth. Battery life is punished due to the Radeon GPU.

We like the Toshiba Satellite L500D, it's amazing value for its price. However, we think it's worth paying the extra AU$200 for the version with the less power hungry GPU.
