If you are one among those then the Toshiba Satellite C75D-A7130 might be something to talk about. This is a big laptop for Toshiba that offers a nice experience with a bigger than usual screen. Interested? Read the full review to know more.

Design

This laptop is big. Even from the sides it looks bulkier that most of the laptops in the market. If you need a compact laptop you need not go after this one. There are stripes at the top that adds a nice touch to the looks. The bezel around the screen is smaller and this makes sure there isn’t much interruption during viewing any media. The keyboard and the touchpad are of the usual standards.

Display

The display is a big 17.3 inch screen with a resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. This isn’t full HD but since it is better than the usual 1366 x 768 pixels there are more pixels in the screen and the user’s viewing experience is improved by a good margin. The screen is perfect for watching movies and is also tailor made for other media consumption.

If you are a creative person like a designer or someone who likes to work on images and videos you’ll like the bigger screen space. Though this isn’t a touchscreen it still is good enough for carrying out creative tasks.

Processor and Memory

The processor that runs the Toshiba Satellite C75D-A7130 is an AMD Quad core A6 processor. The processor has four cores and has a clocking frequency of 2GHz. There is no turbo boost to improve the clocking frequency when needed. Though the processor is good for multi threaded applications the performance of the individual cores aren’t as good as expected. The processor can be used well for activities like browsing, office work and some multimedia stuff.

There are 6 gigs of RAM that forms the memory department. This is very good amount of memory that allows the user to run many applications. As mentioned before, multi threaded applications can be run without any problems thanks to the power this RAM. If you are a multi tasker you’ll find good use in this laptop.

Hard drive and Graphics

There are 750GB of space in the hard drive that comes along this notebook. This is good amount of space that is enough for most of the users. It comes with Windows 8.1 which is the latest operating system from the house of Microsoft. It will take up a little space in the hard drive but the usable space won’t disappoint you.

The graphics department is taken care of by the AMD Radeon HD 8400 graphics card. This is not the latest and the greatest graphics you can find. This will run most of the games that were releases in 2013 and some games released in 2014 with minimal settings. Since this is not a gaming notebook, you can’t expect anything better of it.

Connectivity

There are 3 USB ports with just one of them being an USB 3.0 port. There is also an HDMI port that enables the user with higher end connectivity (like HD TVs). You also get Bluetooth 4.0 support through which you can easily connect to your printers and such devices. There is also a super multi DVD drive for people interested in using DVDs.

The battery life is pretty good at 5.5 hours (read medium use). This is nice as the screen is 17.3 inches and bigger screens usually drain the battery quickly but they still have managed to get good juice from the battery.

Is It Worth the Money?

For the money you are paying, you are getting a good and a big screen, an ok processor, a good memory and a decent hard drive. This laptop does not make any claims of high end productivity and the price also suggests the same. You will get the money’s worth if you are going to get this for media consumption and everyday tasks.

Pros

  • Big Screen
  • Good battery life

Cons

  • Not the best processor

Thanks for reading the full Toshiba Satellite C75D-A7130 review. This sure is a big machine and is helpful in more than just one way. Go get this one if multimedia and not so processor hungry tasks are what you are going to do with your laptop.
