Toshiba Satellite C670D review

A powerful desktop replacement laptop with a fantastic screen

The Toshiba Satellite C670D is a good all-round laptop with a mid-range performance. It doesn't really excel in any areas, but neither is it let down by any glaring problems. The size of the laptop means it's going to be more suited to the home than outside, replacing a desktop computer.

We liked

The size of the keyboard makes working on the Toshiba Satellite C670D very comfortable. The large screen looks fantastic and offers plenty of space for working on a number of open windows at once. The build quality is great, with the outer shell feeling robust and capable of withstanding a few knocks and bumps. Toshiba has a good reputation for making solid and dependable products, and the Satellite C670D is no exception.

The generous 4GB of RAM gives the Toshiba Satellite C670D a spring in its step, and in some cases helps pick up the slack from some of the more underpowered components. The overall performance won't blow you away, but it's faster than a lot of other laptops, and as long as you keep Windows 7 free from bloated software you're going to be pleased with the results.

We didn't like

While a large keyboard and screen make working on the Toshiba Satellite C670D comfortable, there's no denying that it has a big negative impact on how portable this laptop it. Because of this, you're going to have to make a decision about what you want out of this laptop.

If you want it for working on while sitting on the sofa or at a desk at home, then the size of the Satellite C670D is not going to be too much of a problem. However, if you're looking for a laptop to take outside, then the size and weight of the Toshiba Satellite C670D is going to be an issue.

The price is also a bit too high for what you get, and it almost feels as if you're paying a premium for the Toshiba brand. With a bit of shopping about you can find more powerful laptops for around £50 less, such as the Packard Bell EasyNote TS13-HR-030UK. It's not such a glamorous brand, and the screen isn't as big, but it performs much better than the Toshiba Satellite C670D.


The Toshiba Satellite C670D's power doesn't compare to most desktop PCs, especially those around the same price as this laptop, but it is enough to make this a decent home laptop for working on and surfing the internet. If you want a machine capable of heavy-duty video editing and playing the latest games, then look elsewhere.
