Summary: Enduring and quiet. The Satellite C50-A-1JU is a basic office laptop based on a Bay Trail Pentium. The laptop for around 400 Euros (~$545) promises long battery runtimes, and good emission rates owing to the energy-efficient quad-core processor.
Pros: Always operates quietly, Good battery runtimes, 24 month warranty, Low power consumption, The good battery runtimes, the two-year warranty, and the low operating noise.
Cons: Fast Ethernet only, Yielding plastic casing, Speakers' poor sound, Screen with bluish cast and low viewing angle stability, A stiffer casing and a brighter, matte screen.
Summary: Quad-core for the masses. We could not help but remain unimpressed by AMD's Trinity dual-core CPUs. But what about the Kabini quad-cores? And how much of a "real laptop" can be found in Toshiba's low-cost offering? Does the mainstream device exhibit unexpected strengths?
Pros: Quiet and cool, Decent keyboard, Low power consumption rate, Great battery life, Superb Wi-Fi reception, So silent, so cool, so economical. The C50D-A-10E can just keep running without ever drawing a lot of power. Seven hours of real-life usage time are quite a lot for a $530-device.
Cons: Strong bluish tint (display), Weak viewing angles, reflections, Low-quality touchpad, Cheap-looking plastics chassis without much torsion resistance, No Gigabit Ethernet, Horrible speakers, A better touchpad, more stability and better build quality as well as brighter, matte display.
Summary: A powerful processor and terrific price point make this device a fine buy
Pros: Sturdy chassis, capable mid-range processor, good keyboard, very affordable, AMD's A6-5200 APU has enough power in its processing cores to handle web browsing, office applications and multi-tasking, and its Radeon GPU is capable of playing relatively modern games, albeit with lesser quality setti...
Cons: Boring design, middling battery life, slow hard disk, terrible audio, The C50D has one of the most uninspiring exteriors we've seen for some time: the entire machine is coated with black matte plastic, and the lid and wrist-rest are barely decorated with a plain lined pattern – even the Toshiba l...
Excerpt: The Toshiba Satellite C50-A-156 is a rather bland and unassuming-looking general purpose laptop, but as it costs less than £350 we can forgive a boring chassis. It's unashamedly plastic and, at 32mm thick, pretty chunky, but it looks smart and feels sturdy.
Excerpt: Windows 8 has given rise to an unexpected breed of computing devices that had probably never been envisaged when the new OS was being designed. While ideally fit for tablets, we are seeing an increasing number of laptops with touchscreens cropping up with some of them sporting screens exceeding 15".
Pros: Large responsive touchscreen; Ergonomic keyboard; Price.
Conclusion: Bei dem Toshiba Satellite C50D-B-125 handelt es sich um ein einfaches Office-Notebook im 15,6-Zoll-Format . Die Rechenleistung reicht für Anwendungen aus den Bereichen Office und Internet aus. Der Rechner erwärmt sich kaum , wird im Idle-Modus aber zu laut. Hier sollte Toshiba schnell nachbessern.
Pros: Gerät erwärmt sich kaum, Kontrastreicher Bildschirm, Gute Akkulaufzeiten
