TOSHIBA SATELLITE L850 Built well, strong CPU performance

The Toshiba L850 doesn’t have the most modern design when compared to the competition. The glossy, metallic finish top attracts fingerprints and can be easily scratched. Other than its massive demeanor, the build quality is actually pretty good, plastics seem durable and it’s put together pretty well. The right side of the notebook houses the microphone and headphone jacks, USB 3.0 ports (x2), HDMI, Gigabit LAN, VGA and an exhaust vent. The Toshiba L850 is powered by an Intel Core i7-3610QM CPU, an AMD HD 7670M GPU and has 8 GB of RAM. Altogether, the performance of the notebook is pretty good for CPU-intensive tasks and a bit of gaming. The large frame of the notebook has given Toshiba ample opportunity to work out the cooling for the internal components, so the L850 never really heats up, even when under stress. The notebook gets a little warm, but never unusably hot. The sound from the speakers is not bad either - the notebook is able to deliver crisp highs and midswith decent bass. Battery life is not the best, though, since there’s no switchable graphics. At Rs 55,000, the Toshiba Satellite L850 is slightly cheaper than the Asus K55VM. However, the weaker battery life and smaller hard drive make us lean towards Asus’s offering instead.
