In a world seemingly full of pocket-sized netbooks, it’s refreshing to see a laptop with a decent screen size, and enough power to be able to handle more than a couple of Firefox tabs. The Toshiba Satellite A350 is designed for movie fans, featuring a 16-inch HD screen, which is designed for optimum playback of films, negating the need for black bars at the top and the bottom of the screen. There’s also Harmon Kardon speakers for, if not quite cinema sound, at least a less tinny audio experience than your average laptop.
It comes with 4GB of RAM as standard, and the HDD goes up to 320GB. Being Toshiba, there’s no hint of a Blu-ray drive though – they opt instead for a Super-Multi DVD drive.
There’s also three USB ports, a 1.3 megapixel webcam and integrated mic and the obligatory classy/subtle Cosmic Black with silver Fusion paintjob.
Price wise, it’s a reasonable £529 for the lowest spec’d model, with the price increasing to £749 with the addition of things like Bluetooth and Draft-N Wireless LAN.
