Toshiba Satellite Pro C850-1FJ

 

6.8 score for processor is not bad generally a good performer for price. Useful backup from Toshiba for drivers etc.. and not littered rubbish apps.

Use to SSD hard drives so seems a bit slow to a access data. But thats to be expected.

Most connectivity options you would want and nice offset track pad design.

Feels a bit cheap but @ under £400 can't complain.
