Toshiba Portege M500 PPM50T-05V01Z

 

擁有三款顏色,號稱純日血統的Toshiba M500是台輕薄型的NB,定位在商用NB所以擁有眾多資訊安全功能,不過為了著重散熱和防震而帶來過厚的機身,會讓視覺系玩家稍微有點猶豫。

資訊安全功能、防水鍵盤、硬碟防震功能、散熱系統良好

機身厚度有點礙眼、鍵盤設計不符合一般習慣、散熱孔位置稍微太靠前

500GB hard drive, solid performance, plenty of features

Feels heavy, too glossy, poor touchpad, only 3GB of RAM usable, short battery life
