Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7046 can be considered easily as a budget laptop. There are few sacrifices that made this laptop quite affordable for everyone. This would be a definite replacement for 17-inch desktop. This is a combination of strong features at a best economical price.

Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7046 is quite captivating with its glossy finish. It is completely covered with a shiny black plastic along with series of small boxes that are aligned in a wavy pattern. A big, silver Toshiba logo definitely will pull towards it. The weight of the system is 5.9 pounds.

Its 17.3-inch screen display allows viewing two documents side-by-side successfully. Watching movies would be almost like theatrical through its widescreen. The maximum resolution of the panel is 1,600 x 900 with 16:9 aspect ratios. Through this, you can have a display of 720p HD movies in their native format successfully. It will produce utmost color quality along with crisp and sharp picture. The upper bezel is adorned with low-res webcam.

The keyboard deck is created as a perfect match for the exteriors with high-gloss finish. You can witness the small touchpad that is completely flush with the deck. The dual mouse buttons are quite responsive, but slightly stiff with loud click. The keyboard size is quite fair enough with reasonable flex, and comfortable typing experience. Right side you have a dedicated number pad like a regular keyboard. All the media controls are shared over function keys and you only find one power switch at the top of the keyboard deck. The satellite’s speakers are quite loud and capable enough to handle high volumes successfully. But, be careful with treble and tinny sounding during high volume levels.

Features:

The Toshiba satellite L675D-S7046’s features are quite impressive. This laptop equipped with 320 GB hard disk drive. There are three USB ports for this laptop, but do not have HDMI port. The best part is its eSATA port as many of its contemporaries failed to provide the same. There are few more significant ports with this laptop such as, VGA, Ethernet ports, a multi-format card reader slot and some more. A DVD multi-drive is very well equipped at the right side of the laptop.

The laptop comes with pre-loaded Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). There is couple of Toshiba utilities which includes a DVD/CD disc creator, face recognition software which works in co-ordination with webcam, a diagnostic app, and a webcam chat program. There are some more utilities come along with this laptop such as Corel’s Label @Once DVD/CD labeling software, and some more. The utilities availability will vary from place to place.

Performance:

The Toshiba satellite L675D-S7046 is well equipped with an AMD Phenom II N850 processor, a 2.2 GHz triple-core CPU. This laptop also comes with 4 GB RAM and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics processor. This graphic processor is a successful integration of components of the AMD chipset. All together, the performance of the laptop is quite satisfactory when compared with few of its contemporaries in the market. Its triple-core chip is the primary reason for its edge over its competitors.
