Summary: At Rs. 55,000, the Toshiba Satellite L850 is slightly cheaper than the Asus K55VM and you also get an operating system bundled. However, you will have to sacrifice battery life and a bit of gaming performance, not to mention a smaller hard drive. For this reason, we would recommend the Asus K55VM over the Toshiba L850.
Summary: Glossy All-Rounder. The Toshiba Satellite L850-153 is equipped with middle-class hardware and targets price-conscious multimedia users. Although it offers a powerful Ivy Bridge CPU and a DirectX 11-ready Radeon HD 7670M, the 15-inch laptop is available at a price starting at 650 Euros (~$840). Sounds like a good deal, except for the sensitive case.
Pros: Modest power consumption, Decent cooling system, Nice touchpad, Good performance, The balanced hardware and good price-to-performance ratio.
Cons: Very sensitive case, Display has poor contrast and a reflective surface, Flawed workmanship, Spongy keyboard, Rickety and poorly distributed ports, Poor sound, A good display with high brightness and low black value. Plus a matt case.
Summary: The Toshiba Satellite Pro L850 lacks the pace of some budget notebooks, and the screen and input device are trimmed to the budget price. Triumphs for the Satellite Pro include its large hard drive and usable speakers, while battery life proved quite usable too. For a business on a budget, it will handle the basics.
Summary: Toshiba Satellite L850 is powerful, and then some! For around Rs. 55,000, you will get a machine powered by a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 2GB graphics card, which will warm the heart of gamers! The Acer Aspire V3 does give it good competition though, and at a lower price, it could be an alternative for someone who doesnï¿½t mind giving up a few things. But the Satellite L850 is worth considering, if within your budget.
Pros: Performance does justice to the potential, Built well, Aluminum lid adds the dash of classiness
Cons: Bad battery life, Much pricier than the similar Acer Aspire V3
Conclusion: If you are looking for a top end, high performing laptop with the best of features and performance, the Toshiba Satellite L850-Y3110 is your best bet. It is loaded with the latest and most powerful technology and comes in a price that is very competitive and reasonable as compared to its competition.

Excerpt: One of the advantages of the dizzying progress of computer technology is that a good deal of power can be bought for very little. The Toshiba Satellite Pro L850-11U might lack the all-round showmanship of Acer’s budget fare, but it’s still a solid laptop.

Summary: What you get in the Toshiba Satellite L850 is a 15.6in laptop that can be used for a little bit of everything. It has a good CPU and discrete graphics, and it ships with plenty of internal storage space. However, its keyboard can feel cramped thanks to a very small left palm rest area and we also think that its asking price is a little too high compared to the competition.

Conclusion: Согласитесь, что ноутбук стоимостью около $800 должен быть продуман во многом. В нашем случае не все так гладко. Не дотягивает дисплей и акустика, не слишком велика автономность, да и жесткость корпуса далеко не идеальна. Однако, вместе с тем, ноутбуку есть что предложить: достойную производительность и неплохие устройства ввода, наконец, наличие необходимых для подключений портов.
