The Toshiba Satellite S50-AST2NX2 is a new Business Laptop from Toshiba and is powered by the latest Intel Core i7-4700MQ quad-core 2.4 GHz Haswell processor, for memory the laptop has a 12 GB DDR3L RAM which is expandable up to 16 GB. The laptop has a 1.0 TB Serial ATA HDD for storage along with a DVD-SuperMulti drive for people with Optical drive requirements.
The 15.6-inch TruBrite LED Backlit display of the Toshiba Satellite S50-AST2NX2 has a max resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels which is not high-res but this shouldn’t be a surprise as Toshiba has a history of pairing bad display’s with good specs and this laptop is no exception. The display is powered by a Intel HD Graphics 4600 although I would have expected this laptop to have a higher-end GPU at this price.
The Toshiba Satellite S50-AST2NX2 weighs in at 5.3 pounds and comes in an elegant Ice silver color with brushed aluminum finish, for power the laptop has a 4 cells, 43 Wh Li-ion battery which alongwith the Haswell processor will provide decent battery life.
This laptop also has Harman/kardon stereo speakers which provide crisper sounds with the help DTS Studio Sound technology, it also has all the standard stuff for a 15-inch laptop like 2 USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an RGB port, HDMI output, Memory card reader, Gigabit Ethernet LAN, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and an HD webcam.
