Dual-mode gadget at modest price
Display and Body
The Toshiba Satellite L 11 L15W-B1310 sports a 11.6-inch HD LED backlit TruBrite display which looks sharp and rich with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels and carries a matte coating to provide crystal clear viewing experience under bright light. The 10-point multi touch panel allows you to access tasks smoothly.
The main USP of this device is its rotatable design which means that you can easily swivel the keyboard deck and use it as a tablet. It looks quite appealing in its satin gold colour with horizontally brushed finish. It has a waist of 21.8mm and a weight of just 1.3kg so that you can tote around with it freely.
Configuration and Platform
On the inside, there is a 2.1GHz Intel Celeron dual-core N2840 processor mated to a 2GB DDR3 RAM. The RAM's memory can be increased via the two user accessible DIMM ports. The task of managing rich graphics is executed by the integrated Intel HD GPU. The Toshiba Satellite L 11 L15W-B1310 ships with 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS to provide intuitive experience.
Camera and Storage
The laptop carries a webcam which can record HD videos and manage high resolution video calls efficiently. It accounts for the storage needs of the user with a 500GB SATA HDD. It also carries a SuperMulti DVD Drive which is really surprising considering its dual-mode nature.
Battery and Connectivity
The Toshiba Satellite L 11 L15W-B1310 is fuelled by a non replaceable 2-cell Li-ion battery claiming to provide up to 5.25 hours of backup. Connectivity wise, it supports digital media reader, HDMI out, one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 slot, Bluetooth v4.0 and WLAN.
The Toshiba Satellite L 11 L15W-B1310 is one of the currently trending dual mode gadgets which can be used as a laptop and as a slate. It flaunts a high quality touch display packed in a light and stylish outfit. Unlike other multimode gadgets, it carries an optical drive. However, it misses out a good configuration and an Ethernet port.
