Display and Design
 
The Toshiba Satellite C50-A X0011 comes with a 15.6-inch HD Clear SuperView LED Backlit display with an excellent resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels to offer decent media viewing experience on a big screen. It doesn't have any operating system installed on board, so you will have to install one. This Toshiba laptop comes with a wide body and weighs at 2.3 kg, which makes it not so friendly device for consumers looking for a easily portable laptop.
 
Processor and Configuration

The Satellite C50-A X0011 is powered by Intel Core i5 4th generation processor with 1.6GHz clock speed. It is paired by 4GB of DDR3 RAM which can be increased by another 3 more slots of 4GB to assist in multitasking. Since it is powered by a Core i5 processor, it offers excellent multitasking features. The graphics performance is handled by Intel HD 4400, which offers great gaming experience.
 
Multimedia and Storage
 
The Toshiba laptop has been offered with an inbuilt front camera, which is very easy to use for video chatting on the go. For storage needs, it comes with 500GB of a SATA Hard Disk Drive, which comes with 5400RPM.
 
Connectivity and Battery
 
The Toshiba Satellite C50 comes with most of the connectivity features like WLAN b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, 1 x USB 2.0 and 1 x USB 3.0 slots. It also comes with a SuperMulti DVD Drive. The power is taken care of by a 6 cell Lithium Ion battery, which at least offers 5 hours of battery life.

Verdict

At this price point, Toshiba Satellite C50-A X0011 offers decent features for the business and entertainment users. With a Core i5 processor and 4GB of RAM, it can smoothly run high-end applications. However, it misses out an HD camera and doesn't come with an operating system.

    Overall: Update 2 !! - Toshiba was unable to even understand the issue relating to intel vt-x and they never responded to my emails and kept beating around the bush. By far the worst tech support I have ever come across.

    Finally I figured out the issue with the intel vt-x. So here goes the explanation:
    In the bios if you set the intel virtualization to 'vt-x only' , and you run speccy or microsofts hypervisor advisor tool, it will report that vt-x is available but disabled. The ladies at toshiba tech support that attended my call (after me emailing and following up for a month with no proper response from them) kept giving lame excuses.

    Ok, now coming to the point... I did some playing around and figured out the issue.
    To get the intel vt-x to 'show up' at the OS level you need to set the 'intel virtualization' option in the BIOS to DISABLED !!! YES, you read it right.. if its set to DISABLED then it works as intended, and shows up on speccy and microsofts tool as enabled. Weird BIOS ..

    What is the use of intel vt-x ?
    One of my reasons for needing intel vt-x is i need to run 64 bit virtual machines on oracle virtual box/vmware , and without this vt-x enabled you just don't even get an option to create a 64 bit vm. Only after i set it to 'disabled' was I able to get it working and create my 64 bit virtual machines. Pls do read more about intel vt-x on intel's website.

    UPDATE 1 !! ALERT : This laptop hardware (i.e. CPU,) is capable of intel vt-x (intel's virtualization platform) but TOSHIBA doesn't have a supporting BIOS firmware/motherboard and hence this feature shows up as 'disabled' at the OS level (tested using speccy, cpuz, microsofts' tool)even though it is set to enabled in the BIOS . this is a very useful feature for those who are looking to run virtualization stuff on the laptop such as vmware/hyper-v etc..
    I have been trying to get in touch with toshiba, but it hasnt worked out so far.they even gave me a bios update (you cant figure out which one to use on their indian website), but the update did not do any miracles for the vt-x. I am still waiting for an update from Toshiba from the past 2 weeks.

    Initial Review:

    1. it effectively cost me only around 30k (after various discounts n refund from flipkart)
    2. the one i received came with a single 4GB RAM (not 2 x 2 GB as mentioned in the listing)
    3. The RAM module used on this laptop are DDR3L (low voltage i.e. 1.35V , normally its 1.5V) - 4th gen core i processors are made to work with the low voltage spec RAM's - still difficult to find a DDR3L RAM (since 90% of them being sold are 1.5V spec) - maybe they will be available sooner.
    4. Trouble getting certain drivers for Win 7 64 bit (usb3.0 , bluetooth, toshiba audio enhancement) - I see toshiba have released new drivers over the past week, but i managed to get them earlier after some googling since I got this laptop on the 15th march. The toshiba audio enhancement still doesnt install.
    5. The audio quality is POOR - The drivers on the toshiba site are for realtek audio but the laptop seems to have the IDT audio chipset (had to use windows update to get the drivers)
    6. The keypad has a lot of 'gaps' and will definitely cause a lot of dust to enter. I would suggest using one of those keypad protectors rubber sheet.
    7. The wifi / bluetooth indicator always lights up in red and doesnt go off even when you use the Fn+wifi toggle to turn off/on wifi - still trying to figure out how it works.
    8. Battery life is good - currently lasts around 4.5 hrs under normal office usage (no movies/gaming :-) ). You could watch a 2 hr movie and then get another hour out of it. Also depends on the power plan you chose.
    9. Opening the cover that houses the RAM/HDD is a pain. It is so hard to pull it off that you need to use a lot of force & still be careful to not break it.
    10. I find the port placing to be a little awkward. For example the LAN port is on the right which interferes when one uses a mouse, and the power connector is on the left and the power cable provided is SHORT. Ideally the power port should have been on the right or rear and the LAN port at the rear or left.
    11. I find that the lcd panel of the screen itself moves around 0.5 mm up and down (place your thumb on the screen and gently move it up and down and u can feel that the screen is 'loose' ) - not sure if its specific to the piece i received or affects every piece in this model.
    12. Performance wise the laptop is good except for some of the annoyances mentioned above. I now see that is selling at around 39k !! I wouldn't have paid 39k. it was a deal for me at around 30k.
    13. And i am still struggling to get it registered for the warranty/extended warranty offer. Been following up with Toshiba for more that 1 week now and they just emailed me yesterday that it will take another 15 days to get it updated.
    3 Stars for the annoyances and the recent bump in price.. If you are spending close to 40k, get a Lenovo or Dell.
