The Good

  • Weight
  • Durability
  • Graphics
  • Keyboard

The Bad

  • Storage

Weight: At roughly five pounds, the Toshiba Satellite is an extremely lightweight machine. This makes for a convenient travel laptop that can be easily stored in a standard backpack or messenger bag.
DurabilityCustomers have stated this laptop has survived numerous bumps, falls and tumbles unscathed. If you’re a bit on the clumsy side, this model should be able to handle anything you throw at it.
Graphics: While you shouldn’t expect this machine to play modern video games on high settings with smooth frame rates, the dedicated AMD graphics card included with this laptop is great for older games and gives it a leg up when it comes to video rendering.
Keyboard: The keyboard is very comfortable to use, provides exceptional feedback and has a separate number pad – which is rare on laptops. Unfortunately, there’s no backlighting though.
Storage: When it comes to internal storage, Toshiba cut corners with this model. 500GB should be enough for casual use, but many laptops in this price range have at least double that.
