On average Toshiba medium processor core laptops have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all portable PCs manufactured by Toshiba.
Very Big Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of the Satellite L50-B of 1,000 gigabyte is one of the biggest amongst similar spec laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as the Satellite L50-B. The smallest total storage capacity of medium processor core laptops that were released around the same time as the Satellite L50-B is 1GB, the biggest is 1.5TB, and the average total storage capacity is 500GB.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1TB total storage capacity notebook PCs currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Asus X550CA.
Quite Big Internal Memory
The average internal memory of laptops of this spec and age is 5.1GB. At 8 gigabytes, the Satellite L50-B has a very big internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago.
Has a Front Camera
The Satellite L50-B has a front camera. Most of the other laptops of this age and spec also have a front camera.
This notebook PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is the most frequently found operating system architecture on medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for more than two years.
Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Toshiba Satellite L50-B has a very big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and type. Portable PCs that came out around the same time as the Satellite L50-B have hard drive capacity of between 120GB and 1.5TB.

8 Reasons Against
Only 133MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
This laptop supports 1333 and 1600MHz processor memory clock speeds, which is the most commonly supported processor memory clock speed on medium processor core laptops that are a similar age to it.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The Toshiba Satellite L50-B does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other notebook PCs of a similar age and type to the Satellite L50-B do have a full-size keyboard.
This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many laptops of a similar type and age to it. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
There are a number of alternative laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available that you might want to look at including the X550CA, or the X552CL (£465.95) both from Asus or the Fujitsu LifeBook A512 which is cheaper.
If you want a laptop with a better storage medium then you might want to consider the Fujitsu LifeBook A544 (SSD).
Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution
This portable PC has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on medium processor core laptops that were released around the same time as it.
We compared this laptop to all the other portable PCs that have a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the X550CA, and the X552CL (£465.95) both from Asus is also worth considering.
+5 More reasons against
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Most portable PCs of a similar spec and age to the Satellite L50-B do not have a touch sensitive screen. The Toshiba Satellite L50-B is no exception to this as it too does not have a touch sensitive screen.
The Satellite L50-B is a one USB 2.0 port notebook PC.
Only 802.11a WiFi Standard
The Satellite L50-B has a better Wi-Fi standard than most notebook PCs of a comparable age and type to it. This portable PC has an 802.11a WiFi standard, whereas most comparable spec notebook PCs that came out around the same time as it have an 802.11n WiFi standard. This Toshiba portable PC also have 802.11ac and 802.11b and 802.11g WiFi standards.
This laptop's Wi-Fi standard (802.11a) is actually the worst Wi-Fi standard amongst all portable PCs of this age and type.
Amongst similar types of laptop the best Wi-Fi standard is 802.11n.
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This notebook PC supports a 4.0 LE Bluetooth version, which is typical of many laptops of this type and age.

Released Over Two Years Ago
Toshiba released the Satellite L50-B over two years ago.
Average Screen Size
With a screen size of 15.6 inches, the Toshiba Satellite L50-B has a pretty standard screen size compared to most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Satellite L50-B.

Intel Core I3-3xxx Processor Family
The Toshiba Satellite L50-B has an Intel Core i3-3xxx processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5 processor family found on most similar spec laptops that were released more than two years ago.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative notebook PCs that have an Intel Core i3-3xxx processor family currently available including the Asus X552CL (£465.95), or the Fujitsu LifeBook A512 which is cheaper.
If you are looking for a laptop with a better processor family then you might also want to consider the PU500CA (Intel Core i5-3xxx), or the X550CA (£324.99) (Intel Core i5-3xxx) both from Asus or the Toshiba Satellite Pro L850 (Intel Core i5-3xxx).
