Satellite R850 Series - Premium Design. Outstanding Performance.
The Satellite R850 is a laptop that provides performance you won't believe. A 2nd generation Intel Core i5 processor provides leading power, while the 39.6cm (15") HD screen with LED backlighting and dedicated graphics deliver vivid images. 6GB of fast RAM allows smooth multitasking with multiple demanding applications, whilst the large 640GB hard drive will store all of your important files and media. A powerful battery keeps you going for up to 8 hours, and the robust design helps keep your content safe. Wi-Fi connectivity helps you stay in touch with friends, while the stunning design comes in a selection of colours.
Innovative Cooling System
The R850 is the first Toshiba laptop to feature a new way of keeping the laptop cool. Keeping the areas of the laptop liable to overheating in one place, the R850 draws in cool air rather than pushing out the hot air--meaning your laptop is nearly silent and its components work more efficiently in their cooler environment.
As well as staying cooler than ever, the R850 is stronger than ever too, without the additional weight of reinforcement. The honeycomb design on the R630's palmrest makes it naturally stronger and more resistant to pressure being applied - which means your laptop's internals are better protected
Toshiba TruBrite Crystal Clear Display
The large widescreen offers a TruBrite Crystal Clear Display for clearer, brighter images. The display is ideal for viewing the latest movies with its 16:9 true widescreen ratio and improves the contrast and clarity of everything you view, allowing you to view movies in their intended format.
Connectivity at your Fingertips
The Satellite R850 has an integrated HDMI port for added convenience and enhanced usability. Now you can connect your laptop to an external device and stream high definition content. When using HDMI, audio and visual content are streamed through a single cable, removing the need for multiple connections. Now you only need one cable, making connecting your laptop easier and tidier. Also included is a USB/eSATA port to connect your laptop to external devices and high-speed file transfers to external hard drives, a dedicated USB port and Bluetooth 3.0 capability.
Wireless Sharing is Easy with Bluetooth 3.0
This laptop includes Bluetooth 3.0 which allows you to connect and share files wirelessly over short distances. This makes it ideal for connecting to compatible mobile devices such as smartphones, MP3 players, and more. You can also use Bluetooth to connect to wireless peripherals, such as headsets, speakers, mice and keyboard, making it easier to use your laptop on the move or at home without the clutter of connecting wires.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 for Fast Connections
Experience the transfer rates of the future with USB 3.0. By connecting to a compatible USB 3.0 device, such as an external drive, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 can offer up to 10 times faster transfer rates than today's Hi-Speed USB 2.0 standard.
This means that files and folders that took hours to transfer now just take minutes, and you can move whole albums to and from your laptop in just a few seconds, saving you time and making your media much more portable. Just imagine - now you can move a feature-length movie to a portable drive in just a few minutes, ready to take to a friend's house and watch on the big screen.
Not only is USB 3.0 fast, it's also convenient. You'll still be able to connect and charge all your favourite USB 2.0 devices from your USB 3.0 port, such as your MP3 player or smartphone. With USB 3.0 you get the compatibility you need for today with the speed you'll need for tomorrow.
The Satellite R850's touchpad features multi-touch gesture support, providing an innovative alternative to conventional scrolling and buttons. The touchpad features an advanced, touch-sensitive interface solution that senses the position of a finger or fingers on its surface and recognises pinching, swiping, and rotating motions performed by simply moving your fingers.
The multi-touch touchpad recognises four different finger gestures.
- Pinch Gesture--two-finger pinch delivers zooming functionality in many Windows applications. The two-finger pinch zoom can be used to zoom in or out of photos, maps, or documents.
- Scrolling--two-finger and two-finger reverse scrolling delivers functionality in Windows applications by using two separate fingers in a horizontal or vertical motion anywhere on the touchpad, with the scrolling rate controlled by your finger speed.
- Momentum Motion--delivers smooth, fast, trackball-like cursor motion. A quick flick of one finger across the touchpad surface can move the cursor across the entire screen and is ideal for use with computer gaming applications.
- Rotation--rotate photos and other items in 90-degree increments by placing two separated fingers on the touchpad and moving them around in a continuous clockwise or counter-clockwise circular motion.
Integrated Web Camera
The Satellite R850 features an integrated 1.3-megapixel web camera with Toshiba Face Recognition. The camera and microphone let you see and hear your contacts online, and can take still pictures, video clips and audio notes. With Toshiba's integrated webcam communication is made easy--network with friends and family from the comfort of your own home.

It sits above the Windows taskbar and the timeline can be easily scrolled through until you find the file you're looking for.
Sleep N Charge USB
There is no need to carry around multiple charging accessories when you have your R850. With a Sleep N Charge USB port you can charge your mobile phone, MP3 player and other digital gadgets even while your laptop is switched off - now you can charge your gadgets overnight and wake up to a fully-charged battery.
Integrated Web Camera
The Satellite R850 features an integrated web camera with Toshiba Face Recognition. The camera and microphone let you see and hear your contacts online, and can take still pictures, video clips and audio notes. With Toshiba's integrated webcam communication is made easy--network with friends and family from the comfort of your own home.
DVD SuperMulti Drive
View all your movies, use your laptop as a multi-purpose entertainment system and create your own CDs and DVDs with the built-in DVD SuperMulti drive. Not only does it provide great viewing, but the integrated speakers also offer optimum sound quality--perfect for listening to all your favourite songs.
Toshiba Eco Utility
Save laptop power with Eco Utility, a power saving application designed by Toshiba to encourage better energy efficient usage. Accessed via the Windows taskbar, once activated you can monitor and begin saving power consumption immediately. A power consumption chart can be displayed to show the increase and decrease of power consumption when the Eco Mode is active. The utility is designed to offer a graphic view of consumption while using the laptop, as well as a historical record of consumption which can display both power consumption (displayed in WH) and CO2 emissions (displayed in kg). Eco Utility allows the user to work in a power-saving Eco Power Plan. Once Eco mode is activated, the system works accordingly to set Eco-friendly parameters, such as automatically dimming the display brightness, disabling LED and keyboard backlighting, and reducing the time before activating the hard drive sleep mode.
3D Hard Disk Protection
The R850 instinctively protects your data on the move. When it senses that your laptop makes sudden movements--from dropping the machine to picking it up--the HDD head is unloaded, removing it from close proximity to the media, and so decreasing the possibility of damage. Once the notebook returns to a stationary state, the head is loaded back to its regular position.
Four levels of protection help to prevent a false detection--so turn on maximum protection when the laptop is unlikely to move--such as on a desk--and move it to a more liberal level when working on the train or in a situation where the laptop is likely to move slightly.
