Ev, Norwich computer expert

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Latest Haswell processor.
Thin profile.
The latest Windows 8.1 operating system.
Large - 8Gb RAM
Large - 1Tb hard drive.
Bad points:
Perhaps using WIndows 8.1 - as my desktop computer has WIndows 7, I have installed Stardock's Start8 which works fine and to me, is now easier to work with.
I also use a mouse with this laptop.

Gary, Bexhill

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Clean style keyboard layout, slim and smart appearance
Bad points:
One of the Toshiba brand chrome figures was missing from new.
Mousepad was inoperative after two days and had to return to PCW who undertook a full wipe taking off my recently loaded programmes. Fortunately I hadn't too much data installed. Generally happy but apprehensive that problem could be a hardware fault and reoccur.

Wonderful Windows
Keeping in touch with all the latest information is easier than ever with Windows 8. The Start screen features constantly updating tiles of all your favourite apps, social networks and more, which means you’ll always be informed of the latest news stories, status updates and messages.

Cloud connected, you can access your documents and more from almost anywhere. Simply sign into your laptop and they’ll be there waiting for you. This makes it simple to switch between your Windows 8 devices too.

The Satellite M50-A-11Q boasts a touchpad which supports gesture control, so you can soon be pinching, tapping and sliding your way through your applications, documents and more.

There are improvements coming to Windows 8 thanks to the free 8.1 update. This will see the return of the Start button amongst other features such as changes to Live Tile sizes and updated search and lock screen options.

Processing perfection
Ideal for home computing, at the heart of the Toshiba Satellite M50A11Q is a 4th generation Intel® Core™ i3 processor, providing all the power you need to browse websites, play around on apps and email. This processor is supported by 8 GB of RAM, providing more than enough memory for all your multitasking needs.

There’s also a huge 1 TB hard drive which means that there’s ample storage space for your documents, multimedia, applications and much more.

Sound’s good
Don’t put up with weak sound whilst you’re watching online videos or listening to your favourite songs. The Satellite M50A-11Q features DTS Sound technology which helps to give your audio more body, whilst the integrated speakers are positioned below the screen so you can get the best out of your laptop.

Full connectivity
VGA and HDMI connections allow you to connect it to larger displays such as monitors or HD TVs, making it ideal when you need to share your screen with more people.

The Satellite M50-A-11Q includes ample USB connectivity thanks to the USB 2.0 port and two superspeed USB 3.0 ports. One of these features Sleep and Charge, which means that you can charge your USB devices even when you’re not using your laptop.
