If your daily activities include graphic design, video rendering or even gaming, then you need a powerful laptop. The Toshiba Satellite P50-C-11K is one of them, packing an impressive spec sheet, which, combined with a great design, make this device every technology enthusiast’s dream. Still, high-end specs don’t come for cheap, but we’ll get to that a bit later.
It’s powered by a 5th Gen Intel Core i7 5500U, running at 2.4 GHz, which, thanks, to the Turbo Boost technology, can be increased to a maximum clock speed of 3.0 GHz. For multitasking, you also get 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, expandable with 8 more, if you want to get the max out of your laptop.
In terms of graphics, the Toshiba Satellite P50-C-11K is rocking a NVIDIA Geforce 950M card, with a dedicated video memory of 4 GB DDR3. Technically, it can run even the most demanding video software or the latest games.
As for the storage capacity, it counts 1 TB, provided by a hard disk drive. It also comes with a 8 GB solid state drive, for quick start-up times.
For file transfers, you can use the Blu-Ray RW optical drive. Also, it has three USB 3.0 ports and a card reader, supporting formats like SD, SDHC, SDXC and MMC. As for the connectivity department, it’s represented by an HDMI port, Bluetooth 4.0, Wireless 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n and Ethernet LAN.
Moving on to the display, the Toshiba Satellite P50-C-11K is using a 15.6″ LED-backlit panel, with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1280 pixels. Also, thanks to the TruBrite technology, you can enjoy crisp and clear images, making this laptop perfect for media consuming.
And by media consuming we also mean movies, which can be enjoy with an excellent sound quality too. The laptop is using a Harman Kardon speaker system, powered by the DTS Studio Sound technology.
Above the display, we can spot an HD webcam, alongside an integrated microphone, perfect for video calls and keeping in touch with your friends and family.
The laptop comes with a 4-cell Lithium-Ion power pack, therefore, the battery lasts about 5 hours and 30 minutes. It might seem low, but for such a powerful device, this is a very good value.
Design-wise, we’re looking at a very thin and elegant device. With a satin gold aluminum finish, the Toshiba Satellite P50-C-11K looks as good as it performs. It measures 0.88″ in in thickness and weighs 4.8 pounds.
Finally, we should also mention the illuminated keyboard, perfect for using the laptop in dark environments.
Like mentioned above, the Toshiba Satellite P50-C-11K is far from being cheap. At $1429.99, it’s definitely not a device for every user category. Still, if you’re looking for a capable device and the budget is not a problem, this is an option you should consider.
