Review Toshiba Satellite C850-1LX Notebook


Add some contrast to the office. A Celeron dual-core processor from the Ivy Bridge generation powers this Toshiba notebook. The processor joins forces with a 15.6-inch display, plenty of hard drive space and Windows 8. On paper, the computer claims to...

Very high contrast display, 24 month warranty, The case always remains cool, Moderate energy consumption, The two-year warranty and the high contrast display

Only Fast-Ethernet, Dark display, Gigabit Ethernet and a brighter display

Toshiba Satellite C850/02D


LG-supplied screen a little more vibrant than AUO supplied equivalents

100Mbps Ethernet ; Low battery life ; Flexing keyboard

By itself, Toshiba's Satellite C850/02D does OK; however, AU$100 more will get you better battery life, build quality and gigabit Ethernet from its competitors.

Toshiba Satellite C850-1LQ


Great value, does all I need. Used as a "portable desktop" so I can't comment on battery life

Flimsy keyboard - not ideal if you intend to do a lot of typing unless you add a separate keyboard

Fast boot up speed

Missing some key basic software which I had to purchase. Rediculous amount of adware had to be blocked and removed. Still can't prevent some popping up
