Review Toshiba Satellite Pro C870 Notebook

 

Inexpensive 17-inch office notebook. A matte 17.3-inch display, a Core i3 processor and enough hard drive space - is this an ideal notebook for the office? Our review reveals whether that's true or not.

Matte Display, Good Performance, USB 3.0, The matte display

Only 12 Month Warranty, Keyboard Needs Improvement, A better keyboard

Consumer review by: Robin (reevoo.com)

Toshiba Satellite C870-11H

 

Light to carry around and has a reasonable battery life.Display is crisp and sharp, the 17.3 screen certainly makes it better to work with.

Keyboard seems a bit flimsy compared to the dell I used ,which is now redundant.
