Review Toshiba Satellite P875-30E (P870-30E) Notebook

 

Expensive entertainer. Powerful hardware, strong speakers and a built-in Blu-Ray drive - let the fun begin. Toshiba's new multimedia all-rounder has its strengths but is let down by the poor screen. Is the notebook still worth its price of 1200 Euro...

High application performance ; Good workmanship ; HDD + SSD ; 4 RAM slots ; Powerful speakers ; Long battery life

High price ; Disappointing screen ; Keyboard yields marginally ; Touchpad dropouts during CPU load ; GPU throttling on battery power

Despite the small 48 Wh battery, the laptop baffles with long battery life that can records 7 hours when idling

Toshiba Satellite P875-31P review

 

Considering the Toshiba Satellite P875-31P is a desktop replacement, it's no surprise that it's a bulky piece of kit. The weight, a fraction short of 3kg sounds like a lot, but since you're unlikely to move it around the house too often this matters...

The Toshiba Satellite P875 is a bulky Windows 8 desktop-replacement laptop. with some powerful components but the package is marred by its low grade display. Build quality is also wanting given the high price.

Toshiba Satellite P875-31P review

 

A powerful 17in laptop to replace your desktop

Nice finish on chassis, powerful enough to replace a desktop PC

Cheap feeling keyboard, plastic construction not reflected in price

Toshiba's Satellite P875-31P is very much the powerhouse. It might not have the most exciting or revolutionary design on the market right now, but for those looking for a large notebook to replace an outdated desktop PC this can do the job.
