Toshiba Satellite S75D-A7272 17.3 inch Laptop
via Amazon

What stands out most with the new Toshiba Satellite S75D-A7272 laptop is its awesome 17.3 inch Full HD screen with the most powerful AMD graphics engine built so far. Sure it is well powerful with its quad core CPU for all your daily tasks and even some gaming, the machine is well built overall with a solid and strong body, it comes with harmon/cardon speakers and more..

@ AMD Quad-Core A10-5750M Accelerated Processor (comparable to Intel i5-4430M) with 8GB DDR3L 1600MHz memory.. Quad core means 4 cores and 4 threads that offer you a great multitasking experience with CPU speeds from 1.3 GHz to 2.5 GHz, while finding a balance between energy efficiency and performance. At the price this notebook is offered, do not expect it to be a full on gaming machine (you need to pay about $2000 for a good gaming laptop) but it is quite capable of running many games at different settings with no problems. Price to performance ratio is unbeatable with this laptop.

@ 1.0TB Serial ATA at 5400 RPM rotational speed means you have lots of storage on it. Also an SSD upgrade can be easily done if you need to.

@ Toshiba Satellite S75D comes with a delightful 17.3" widescreen FHD TruBrite TFT LED Backlit Display at 16:9 aspect ratio and 1920x1080 pixel resolution that supports 1080p. Glare is minimal so you won't see yourself much on the screen while working on the laptop but you will a little when you turn it off. AMD Radeon HD 8650G graphics is the best AMD graphics engine in the market- comparable to NVidia GT730M and you will probably not get a better price to performance ratio in terms of graphics.

@ Great sound quality through harman/kardon stereo speakers and DTS Studio Sound.

@ Fancy black US LED backlit keyboard with 10-Key numeric pad and a multi-touch control ELAN touchpad that is quite responsive, accurate and highly customizable. Overall feel of the keyboard and touchpad is just great.

Connectivity: Wi-Fi Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n), 10/100 Ethernet LAN, 1-USB (2.0) port with Sleep and Charge which allows you to charge your phone when the laptop is asleep or off, 2-USB (3.0) ports for very quick data transferring ability, DVD-SuperMulti drive (+/-R double layer), Memory Card Reader, HDMI output port, RGB port, HD Webcam and Microphone, 75W (19V 3.95A) Auto-sensing 100-240V / 50-60Hz input AC Adapter, Realtek RTL8188E 1x1 network card.

@ Windows 8 operating system- as is the case in many latest computers these days.

Toshiba Satellite S75D-A7272 Review
@ With 5.9 lbs weight, Toshiba Satellite S75D-A7272 is very light for a 17.3 inch screen laptop- as light as 15 inchers.

@ Modern, solid and strong looks with Ice Silver in Brushed Aluminum color.

@ This is an Energy Star qualified machine like other Toshiba laptops. 6-cell 4800mAh Li-Ion battery gives you up to 5 hours, but more like 4 hours in normal use. The battery also charges within 1.5 hours- which is considered quick, and it is removable if you need to replace it with a new or better one.

Pros: Best AMD graphics card - Full HD 17.3" display - Very good quality sound - Powerful AMD Quad-Core A10-5750M processor - Easy multitasking - Very light for a 17.3" laptop - Great solid looks that inspire power.

Cons: Windows 8 for some people.

Verdict: Toshiba Satellite S75D-A7272 is by no means an ultra sleek ultra something, but a robust classical 17 inch functional and powerful laptop with great features for how much it costs.. Latest AMD processor, the best AMD graphics card, full HD screen, impressive sound quality, easy multitasking with 8GB RAM, 1TB storage in a very light and modern package. We highly recommend it at the current Amazon price, if it is something along the lines of what you're looking for.
