Toshiba Satellite M50-A-11C review


A powerful mid-range laptop - but it needs a little more polish

Fast processor ; Discrete graphics card ; Reasonable battery life ; Good keyboard ; Affordable

Average build quality ; Poor-quality screen ; Unimaginative design ; Terrible speakers ; No SSD

Ratings in depth A significant chunk of the laptop market is still taken up by traditional notebooks that trounce Ultrabooks with larger screens, more versatile specifications and lower prices than many of Intel's hyped-up machines can currently match.

Toshiba Satellite M50-A-11Q review


The build quality is good too, with a firm, comfortable keyboard and trackpad, and the M50 certainly doesn't look or feel like a budget laptop.

The M50-A-11Q provides very respectable performance, battery life and build quality at a competitive price. It's not perfect, and the screen's limited viewing angles are a clear weakness. Even so, it's well worth considering if you're on a tight budget...

Toshiba Satellite M50-A-11C review


A powerful laptop with dedicated graphics and a superb battery life for £550, but its below average screen holds it back

Toshiba Satellite M50 (14-inch, 1.4GHz)


Despite its extremely affordable price and logical design, the M50 fails to stand out in terms of performance, features or battery life.

Highly affordable ; Attractive chassis design ; Fairly light at 2.4kg ; Convenient multimedia buttons ; Instant-on media playback function ; Impressive Harman Kardon speakers

Extremely poor battery life ; Paltry 256MB of memory ; Comparatively small hard drive ; No Firewire port ; No memory card reader

All in all, it's difficult for us to recommend the M50 purely due to its sub-par battery life. This wouldn't be as much of an issue if the notebook leapt ahead in other areas such as performance or feature-set, but unfortunately this isn't the case. If...

Toshiba Satellite M50 (14-inch, 1.4GHz)


Great laptop! Except it doesn't have a webcam and when you click the 'Play' button it goes to Windows Media Player when i want it to go to iTunes.

Good speaker, great colour and style, Bluetooth, WLAN

Battery life is terribly bad, useless keys on keyboard, no webcam

Toshiba Satellite M50 (14-inch, 1.4GHz)


Laptop seems to be quite powerful. However, I often have problems with it. My M50 is 2 years old now and wow I've had SOO many problems with the cooling fan, the bluetooth module, hard disk..... I guess my problems were due to the inapt technicians at...

Pentium M 740 (1.73GHz) ; 768MB DDR RAM ; ATI MOBILLITY RADEON X600SE (256MB + 128MB ext Video RAM) ; Integrated Bluetooth, 5-in-1 card reader

Absolutely lousy battery life! (Being only 2 years old, it lasts for just 40 minutes!)
