Review Toshiba Satellite P50-A-11L Notebook

 

Silver arrow. Toshiba sent us a 15.6-inch multimedia notebook after we already reviewed two larger 17-inch devices. How does the silver colored aluminum device perform and what can you expect from the Satellite P50-A-11L? ...

Noble design and solid build quality; High multimedia performance; Powerful and good sound system

Dark and glossy display; Limited viewing angles and visible blue cast; Throttling under maximum load; No SSD; Fan exhaust on the right side of the case

The bulky and oversized 120 Watts power supply unit that does not improve the mobility.
