Toshiba NB550D Comes in Weird Colors, Looks Awesome

The UberReview
14 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The problem with most netbooks is that their lack of power makes it a challenge to use them for anything more processor demanding than a bit of light browsing. Toshiba’s NB550B stands out from the netbook crowd with a dual core 1GHz AMD C50 (Ontario) processor, Radeon HD 6250M graphics chipset, Harman Kardon speakers.

Toshiba NB550D review – a proof AMD netbooks rock!

5 April 2011
  • Conclusion: For years I’ve been waiting for the moment AMD will bring a competitive hardware platform on netbooks. And despite the long expectations, they finally did it. The AMD powered Toshiba NB550D manages to gather several important qualities under the same hood: well built and good looking body, good overall performances, good battery life and a decent price tag.

Expert Review

Tweak Town
4 March 2011
  • Excerpt: The Toshiba NB550D comes with a 10.1-inch glossy display, but instead of running an Intel Atom CPU, like a typical netbook, the NB550D is based on the AMD C-50 CPU (1GHz) with ATI Radeon HD 6250 graphics. It also comes with a 250GB HDD & 1GB of RAM (it supports up to 4GB, but you'll have up upgrade to a 64-bit OS). On the left side from back to front, you'll find the power jack, Ethernet port, VGA, USB, and microphone and headphone jacks.

Review Toshiba NB550D (AMD Fusion) Netbook

22 February 2011
  • Summary: Goodbye to Atom? The NB550D is Toshiba’s latest flagship netbook, featuring the new AMD C-50 APU along with an AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics unit and high-quality Harman Kardon speakers. Is it the perfect entertainer for €349, even without a matt HD display?
  • Pros: Workmanship and colours, Easy to upgrade, Acceptable range of ports, Good touchpad, Smooth HD playback, Efficient cooling system, Harman Kardon loudspeakers, Impressive battery life, The rubberized surfaces, the long battery life and the comfortable touchpad.
  • Cons: Keyboard layout and lettering, Glossy display with standard resolution, Poor contrast and depth of black, Too much pre-installed bloatware, Mediocre office performance (1 GB RAM), Few accessories, A base configuration of 2 GB of RAM, and a better, matt, screen.

Toshiba NB550D review

2 February 2011
  • Summary: The Toshiba NB550D feels sturdy, looks good, it's light and it has good speed for a netbook. The HDMI port should make it appeal to users who want something small that they can plug into their TVs to watch streaming video or downloads. Note that we did see choppy video on our high defintion television. We also wish it had better battery life, as its performance in our battery test doesn't stack up well against recent competitors.

Toshiba NB550D review

29 June 2011
  • Summary: There’s just one important thing to know about Toshiba’s NB550D. Forget the lightweight, slimline build and 10 hour battery life. They’re good, but find us a netbook that you can’t say that about these days and we’d be impressed. What makes the NB550D interesting is that it’s the first netbook to use AMD’s new Fusion processor. Every other netbook of note since Asus’ first Eee PC has been built around the same, almost unchanging, Intel Atom chip.

PC Advisor
12 June 2011
  • Summary: The Toshiba NB550D-10G is a netbook with a difference - in place of the ubiquitous Intel Atom processor is AMD's new 'accelerated processing unit', the APU C50 chip.

Toshiba NB550D review

PC Advisor
10 June 2011
  • Summary: The Toshiba NB550D netbook is one of the very first to use the new AMD Fusion ‘APU’ processors. But will this Accelerated Processor Unit bring decent battery life to the notoriously ephemeral AMD processor line?
