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.
