Having 256GB of space, it’s more than enough for documents and pictures that you may need to use for a presentation. The Intel Core i7 also keeps multiple applications running at the same time, all without breaking a sweat. The Tecra AE50-E is on par with the Acer Aspire E15 when it comes to performance. Take a look at the Acer Aspire 5 Slim review for a 10th generation Core i5 laptop.


One thing to note about the Toshiba Tecra A50-E’s battery is that it has a rare feature in most laptops nowadays, a removable battery.

The Toshiba Tecra AE50-E comes equipped with a USB 3.0 port, headphone jack, disk drive, HDMI, Ethernet, and VGA port.

However if one is looking for a laptop with a more diverse port selection, the Apple MacBook Pro 13 has it in spades.

Build Quality

For every build of a laptop, there will be decisions that will determine what works and what doesn’t regarding the performance of a laptop.

Should customers be looking for a laptop with a brighter screen, the HP Chromebook 14 can be seen in any environment.
