The Toshiba Satellite R850 is a high-end notebook laptop similar to the Toshiba Satellite R840. The primary difference between the R850 and R840 is screen size: the R850 sports a 15.6" display while the R840 sports a 14" display. Otherwise, the two share the same basic features including: a second generation Intel Core i processor, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a high-stiffness resin casing, a copper airflow cooling system and a 640GB hard drive with SSD storage options.
The Satellite R850's second generation Intel Core i processor ensures smooth, consistent performance during day-to-day use while consuming less battery life than equivalent first generation Core i processors. Its copper airflow cooling system allows the Satellite R850 to house more powerful components in a smaller form factor without the need for constantly running fans. Meanwhile, the Satellite R850's SSD storage options offer faster read/write speeds for faster overall system performance while the lack of moving parts (as compared to standard hard drives) cuts down on battery consumption.
