Laptops built by Toshiba generally have good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
Just Six Months Old
This Toshiba laptop has only been on the market for six months.
Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 2.8 gigahertz, the Toshiba Satellite S50-B has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that came out in the last 12 months. The average processor clock speed of recently released notebook price drops is 2.2GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3GHz.
Has a Front Camera
The Satellite S50-B has a front camera, as do most of the other similar spec notebooks that were released in the last 12 months.
This notebook has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many new notebook price drops.
802.11g WiFi Standard
This portable PC has 802.11a, 802.11ac, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n WiFi standards, which is the most frequently found WiFi standard on new comparable spec notebooks.
+2 More reasons for
The Satellite S50-B has a fairly thin height (only 19.9 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to the Satellite S50-B. The thinnest height of notebook price drops that have been on the market for a similar time to the Satellite S50-B is 12mm and the thickest is 48mm.
4 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
Most of the comparable spec laptops that have been available for the last year, including the Satellite S50-B, do not have a full-size keyboard.
The Toshiba Satellite S50-B is a one USB 2.0 port notebook.
Very Slow Hard Drive Speed
Across all the portable PCs that are less than a year old the hard drive speeds range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM, and the average hard drive speed is 6,200 RPM. With a hard drive speed of only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the Toshiba Satellite S50-B has a quite slow hard drive speed compared to most of the other recently released notebook price drops.
+1 More reason against
8 Other reasons to consider the Toshiba Satellite S50-B
Intel Core I5-4xxx Processor Family
The Toshiba Satellite S50-B has an Intel Core i5-4xxx processor family which is better than the Intel Core i7-4xxx processor family found on most similar spec portable PCs that have been around for the last year.
If the processor family of this laptop is too bad for you then you might want to consider the DELL Inspiron 15 (Intel Core i7-4xxx and higher rated).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Toshiba Satellite S50-B has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that were launched in the last 12 months.
It is worth considering different 1000GB total storage capacity notebooks including a higher rated product such as the DELL Inspiron 15.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Toshiba Satellite S50-B has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other notebook price drops that have been on the market for around the same time as the Satellite S50-B.
There are a number of alternative 8GB internal memory laptops that you might want to consider including the DELL Inspiron 15 which have a better Kagoo Rating™.
+6 Other reasons
Average Screen Size
The Toshiba Satellite S50-B has a fairly average screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other notebook price drops that were released around the same time as the Satellite S50-B.
We compared this laptop to all the other 15.6" portable PCs and we think a higher rated product such as the DELL Inspiron 15 are also worth considering.
1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution
The Toshiba Satellite S50-B has a maximum display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. That's 49% less display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels notebook, which is the most common display resolution.
This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on similar spec portable PCs that are less than a year old. 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.
It is worth also looking at other notebooks that have an HDD storage media including the ProBook 430 (£513.59), or the ProBook 430 (£513.59) both from HP or the DELL Inspiron 15 which have a better Kagoo Rating™.
If the storage medium of this laptop is not good enough for you then you might want to also look at the M30-70 (Hybrid-HDD and higher rated), or the M30-70 (Hybrid-HDD and higher rated) both from Lenovo or the Apple Macbook Pro Mid 2014 Retina (£1,599.00) (SSD and higher rated).
