Toshiba Satellite P850

 

The Toshiba Satellite P850 has everything you could want in a multimedia computer. It comes with 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive and a quad-core i7 CPU. It doesn't hurt that the screen features high-definition display, up to 720p. We were disappointed...

The base model comes standard with an Intel Core i7 processor

The integrated graphics card is weak and doesn't allow for much other than watching videos and viewing images

What the Satellite P850 lacks in graphics performance it makes up for with great overall specs.

Handles entertainment well, but usability suffers

Great performance ; Connectivity ; 8GB of RAM ; Good graphics power

Just poorly built

 

I've had this laptop for over a year and a half, thought I was getting a good deal with the I7, 8 gigs and GTE force graphics. Happy with performance other than a BIOS issue but the build quality is terrible. Like several others have mentioned, the...

Worst laptop of all time. Don't buy Toshiba.

 

The screen hinges support is weak and cracks. This was my worst laptop ever. I expect more quality from this thousand dollar laptop. It's a common problem. The design definitely had compromised quality.

Seriously unhappy, wish I could get a refund.

 

r I am extremely unhappy. Several months after the initial purchase I decided to use it with an external monitor. I setup Magic: The Gathering (2012) on the external monitor running in 1920x1080 (1080p), and a tv show running on the laptop's built in...

i7 3630QM quad core hyper threaded processor, dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT 630m graphics card, 8GB DDR3 RAM, Backlit Keyboard

Serious overheating problem, bad battery life, Webcam that has a very low fps and picture quality in anything but fairly well lit environments, graphics aren't nearly as powerful as I thought (although my expectations are not anyone's fault but mine).
