Review Toshiba A500-15H Multimedia Notebook

 

Multimedia Notebook with Gaming Ambitions. The Toshiba A500-15H i

Chic design; Good gaming performance; Many connections and supplies (remote control); Impressive loudspeakers; Illuminated keyboard

Gets fairly loud; Keyboard bends; Contrast poor and pallid display; Low battery life; Very sensitive case

Toshiba Satellite A500-17X review

 

An affordable media laptop, offering a great blend of performance and HD features

Good screen ; Powerful ; Connectivity ; Price

Toshiba Satellite A500-19X notebook

 

Toshiba's Satellite A500-19X is a mid-range multimedia laptop. It's considerably smaller and cheaper than the company's own Qosmio range, yet proves every bit as able. While we've tested an A500 before, the internal specification has changed quite a...

Quality, bright and vibrant display, powerful GPU and multimedia capabilities, value for money

Screen would still benefit from a higher resolution, no Blu-ray

Where the last Satellite A500 we reviewed - the A500-11U - lost out due to the same 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, at around £400 cheaper it’s no longer such a consideration for the A500-19X.

Toshiba Satellite A500-11U review

 

An impressively competent media laptop that's packed with features

Stylish design ; Eco mode ; Dedicated ATi graphics ; eSATA and HDMI

Weak battery life ; Quite heavy ; Keyboard is a bit spongy

This laptop offers good multimedia performance and some neat features but it wont offer it for long when away from the mains

Toshiba Satellite A500-11U notebook

 

Toshiba's Satellite A500 marks a new direction for the brand, with excellent multimedia capabilities more in line with the company's Qosmio range than regular Satellite models. Along with raw power, it's also stylish, comfortable and well made. It's a...

Toshiba A500-19X review

 

The A500 is a smart-looking machine, with a swirling, glossy pinstripe pattern and silver strips around the edges of the case and lid, and subtle white LED indicators. Toshiba has used the entire width of the case for the keyboard, and has included a...

It's a decent, enough laptop, but the keyboard lets it down and you can get better specified laptops for the same price.

Toshiba Satellite A500 review

 

It's a 16in notebook and weighs 3kg, so the Toshiba Satellite A500 will be a little awkward to lug to and from work or the classroom, and it will only just fit into a modest-sized backpack. However, that's to be expected from a notebook designed to...
