Review Toshiba Satellite U50t-A-100 Notebook


Ultrabook by Toshiba. Toshiba now has a new ultrabook series in its lineup and the manufacturer relies on cutting-edge technology for it: Haswell ULV processor, touchscreen and a swift SSD cache are to lure laptop buyers. Whether it can will be seen in...

Very good application performance; Decent battery runtimes; High storage capacity; Low power consumption; Good input devices

Dark, low-contrast screen; Fan whistles/buzzes during load

Toshiba installs a screen that is inferior to many displays found in budget laptops. We don't know what got into Toshiba here.

Toshiba Satellite A100


Amidst stiff competition from Taiwanese and Korean players, Toshiba's Satelite A100 brings with it performance, usability and features. But are these good enough to make it stand out?

The Tecra A7 may be the wiser option as it offers better performance for a similar price, but it depends on whether you value battery life or graphics performance.

Great battery life, Good all rounder

Comparatively poor performance

Toshiba Satellite A100 (PSAARA-055007)


Harmon Kardon speakers, physical external volume control, solid build

Nothing of note

The Toshiba Satellite A100 is a solid notebook for the casual home user. It doesn't top the charts with its performance, but it offers just a little more than the core components.

Toshiba Satellite A100 (PSAA9A-0CU004)


Integrating all the perks of the latest Toshiba range, the A100 delivers good performance in a portable package, with functionality for a range of use...

Good value for money, Sturdy

Mid range battery life

For the price tag, you're looking at a notebook that will carry you into the future. It's light enough to travel with, powerful enough for most tasks and seems sturdy enough to take a few knocks.
