Chassis, connectors, screen of the Dynabook Satellite Pro L50-G-17P
It sports a discreet design with its textured black chassis and runs Windows 10 Pro, a more complete system than classic Windows 10 with its advanced network management and security tools like BitLocker.
The webcam is equipped with a cache system to protect privacy and a TPM 2.0 security chip is integrated while the chiclet keyboard cannot be backlit which is unfortunate at this price point.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile Ultrabook is it good, made up of wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ), an HDMI video output useful for easily connecting this PC to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB-C but also 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if the USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Anti-reflective coating, the screen offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). It is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos with its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio. Too bad, however, that it is not IPS because in this way, we would have obtained significant horizontal and vertical viewing angles.
Performance, battery life of the Dynabook Satellite Pro L50-G-17P
The Dynabook Satellite Pro L50-G-17P is aimed at those who wish to equip themselves with a responsive compact laptop PC offering a large storage capacity for everyday use on the go.
It offers a total storage capacity of 1.2TB which is way higher than average. There is in fact a 256 GB SSD designed to house the system as well as the main software, associated with a comfortable 1000 GB hard drive to accommodate the rest. Clearly, you can store and install multiple files and software on this Ultrabook.
In practice, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we benefit from much faster starts / stops and software launches.
The SSD supports the heart of this laptop well on a daily basis. Composed of a good amount of 16 GB RAM and a low power Intel Comet Lake i7-10510U Quad Core processor, it delivers good overall performance capable of satisfying many users.
The Intel UHD 620 graphics part integrated into the Comet Lake Quad Core i7 allows you to watch photos and videos. Modest, it is not supported by a dedicated graphics card. As a result, this thin and light laptop PC is not designed for heavy graphics work like gaming.
In addition, it should be borne in mind that if the objective is often to perform processing that is demanding in terms of processor and / or graphics resources, it is better to turn to a PC equipped with a non-low consumption processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
However, this will have a negative impact on the battery life whereas here, it is able to interest a maximum of users. Plan on around 9 hours on battery in light use, which is all the more recent as the transport of this Ultrabook is facilitated by its thinness and its weight contained.
