Toshiba Satellite Pro S500 review

Toshiba Satellite Pro S500-11C review

 

A decent laptop with plenty of storage and a good display

Decent performance; plenty of storage; large and bright display

The Satellite Pro S500-11C benefits from good performance but, considering the price, we were expecting much better in terms of battery life.

Toshiba Satellite Pro S500-10E

 

Well equipped - great screen and excellent value

Poor battery life ; impossible to type without cursor suddenly and constantly moving. Perhaps this is because the mouse touch pad is in an unusual place or too sensitive
