Finding a good, reliable laptop can be a chore. For myself, I always want something that’s not too heavy so it’s portable and has a good battery life. And as I am occasionally using memory intensive programs, whether it be for work or play, I want something that’s fast and powerful. And hopefully doesn’t get hot too quickly so it doesn’t burn away my manhood as  I use it on my lap.

And on all of these points, the Toshiba Satellite P50t-A satisfies. The p50t-A is an all-around solid laptop. It runs on a 2. 4 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor and has 8 GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 16 GB). This means the machine is powerful enough to run a number of memory sucking programs at once, without having too many issues.
