Toshiba Satellite P50-C-12Z

 

Nice looking

Overheats badley when working slightly hard, struggles even with old games, charger gets very hot, could get a much cheaper laptop that is more capable. Not very impressed

Toshiba Satellite P50-C-12Z

 

A totally brilliant machine. Very fast performance and excellent clear bright display.

Fan noise was a bit annoying at times of high cpu utilisation but seems much better since settings changed in power settings (advanced section).

Very fast laptop. Love the design.

My model doesn't come with a CD drive, which I didn't realise at first. Had to buy that separately afterwards. Upgrade to Windows 10 took a little while but was worth it.
