Review Toshiba Satellite C70D-A-10L Notebook

 

Quiet, frugal, cool. You have to pay around 450 Euros (~$617) for the 17.3-inch notebook with a Kabini quad-core processor. Our in-depth review shows if you get a good device in return.

Quiet operation, Frugal, Does not get really warm, Usable keyboard, The quiet operation and the low energy consumption

Display has a blue cast, Only Fast-Ethernet, Poor battery runtimes, Longer battery runtimes

Toshiba Satellite C70D-C-107

 

Nice overall specifications. Graphics can cope with most games and Hard drive space is great, very lightweight for its screen size.

The overall design of the laptop is very basic in styling and edges and corners with hands rest dig in a little, really needs smother design, no window scroller on touch pad

Toshiba Satellite C70D-C-107

 

The keyboard is easy to use ... unlike some laptops ... it caters for the 'touch-typist' as well as the 'one finger typist'. Good size screen. Plus it appears to change screens fast ... but have to bear in mind that it is a new machine - only time will...

I personally do not like the space at the bottom of the keyboard ..... too small to put paperwork on! It seems just a waste of space.

I've been through a range of laptop manufacturers over the years, and there's nothing even close to a Toshiba. They have raised the bar yet again.

Windows 10... Heeeeeeelp!
