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.
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.
Toshiba NB550 netbook review: AMD Fusion-powered netbook with HDMI port
Good Gear Guide.au
25 June 2011
Summary: The Toshiba NB550D netbook uses the AMD Fusion platform to supply good overall performance and better-than-usual multimedia features for a netbook. Its HDMI port allows users to connect it directly to a big-screen TV and its Harmon Kardon speakers produce the best sound we've heard from a netbook to date. We like this netbook a lot, but we wish it had better battery life, a less glossy screen and a slightly smoother touchpad.
Pros: HDMI port, good performance for a netbook, good speakers, good build quality and looks
Cons: Battery life not great, video playback was a little choppy on a Full HD television, touchpad texture was a little too rough, very reflective screen
Excerpt: It’s been about three years now since the first netbook appeared. In the early days of these mini laptops’ popularity, we saw some interesting developments around the idea of a fast booting, small screen laptop, available to buy for just a couple of hundred pounds.
Summary: Das NB550D von Toshiba ist jetzt auch mit einem C-60-Prozessor von AMD erhältlich, dazu verspricht die integrierte Radeon-HD6290-Grafikkarte eine im Vergleich zu anderen Netbooks verbesserte Leistung.
Conclusion: to niewielki netbook (262x190x26,05 mm) wyposażony w 10 calowy ekran. Waży 1,284 kg czyli trochę więcej od przeciętnego netbooka Z 10 calowym ekranem. Na wyposażeniu znajdziemy niewielkie głośniki JBL.
Pros: Gniazdo HDMI, Długi czas pracy na baterii, Dobra wydajność
