It may be large and heavy, but the Toshiba Satellite Pro S500's performance and impressive range of ports make this 15.6-inch laptop a good option for desk-bound professionals.

Speed and battery life are excellent

The cursor sometimes jumps for no apparent reason ; I keep getting a message about an Unhandled Exception related to Microsoft.NET Framework. The details refer to JIT debugging but I have no idea what it is talking about. Can't these things be made...
