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

It also features a decent set of connections. Highlights include HDMI and a USB/eSATA combo port, which are joined by VGA, two standard USB ports, Ethernet, two audio jacks (1x headphone, 1x microphone), and a memory card reader that supports up to...

Toshiba Satellite L650-12K review


With an Intel Core i3 330M processor, a generous 320GB hard disk and a 15.6in screen, the Toshiba Satellite L650 looks like any other budget laptop. In our light-usage battery tests however, it lasted for five-and¬-a-quarter hours, which is long enough...

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


Toshiba's low-cost Satellite L650-1DG PSK1EE is a smart-looking mid-range laptop that offers good performance in our tests, but better value can be found elsewhere.

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 review


The version of the Toshiba Satellite L650 that we reviewed, the L650-12Q, is a fabulous budget laptop. Its battery life is disappointing, but it will cope well with just about anything asked of it

Affordable ; Comfy keyboard and trackpad ; Good performance

Limited connectivity options

Conclusion The Toshiba Satellite L650-12Q is a fabulous budget laptop. It's fast, well equipped and will cope with just about anything asked of it. Its battery life is rather disappointing, but it excels in just about every other area

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.
