Review Toshiba Satellite L650D Notebook

 

A Bargain Buy. If you're looking for an inexpensive multimedia no

Value for money ratio; Compact case; Display brightness

Display contrast & viewing angles; Sensitive surfaces; Yielding keyboard; Poor loudspeakers; Port distribution

15 inch multimedia notebooks with lots of power under the hood, such as: Acer's TravelMate 5740G-524G50Mn, Acer's Aspire 5625G-P924G50Mn, Packard Bell's EasyNote TJ75-JO-070GE, DevilTech's Fire DTX, Samsung's NP-R590-JS0YDE, Sony's Vaio VPC-EB1S1E/BJ...

Review Toshiba Satellite Pro L650-197 Notebook

 

Business All-Rounder. Equipped with a strong Intel Core i5 CPU and a starter graphic solution from ATI, the Satellite Pro L650 tries to score with business typical characteristics, such as a matt display.

Matt display, Value for money ratio, Easy to clean surface, Input devices, The matt display that you hardly ever find these days

Unbalanced display illumination, High system temperature (idle and load), Quiet loudspeakers, Moderate battery life, A slightly longer battery life.  A bit over two hour while surfing is in fact very scanty

Toshiba Satellite L650-10G

 

This mid-range 15.6in laptop is powered by a brisk Intel Core i5 processor and has a 500GB hard drive.

Good build quality, Decent screen, Good CPU performance

Glossy plastics throughout, Non-Gigabit Ethernet, Weak dedicated graphics, Average keyboard

Toshiba Satellite L650-12K review

 

A decent budget laptop, with good performance, sturdy build quality and excellent battery life, but the stiff mouse buttons and slight colour problems mean it misses an award.

Toshiba Satellite L650-1DG PSK1EE review

 

The Toshiba Satellite L650-1DG PSK1EE is a smart-looking but somewhat generic mid-range laptop. Like the Medion Akoya P6625, it's a slab of blackness, with a glossy display and subtle patterning.

While the Toshiba Satellite L650-1DG PSK1EE has the edge in terms of looks and build quality and what should be a faster processor, the cheaper Medion Akoya P6625 offers better value for money at this end of the price scale.

Toshiba Satellite L650

 

Good value for the price ; Good battery life

No Bluetooth ; Would have happily traded in the 56Kbps modem for gigabit Ethernet

At less than AU$1000, the L650 offers great bang for buck, and should offer the flexibility for most consumers to do what they want to do.
