The deal: Toshiba Satellite P850 - good-value all-rounder with buckets of RAM - $999.00
For only $999 the 15.6in Toshiba Satellite P850/04P is a mightily specced all-rounder that’s sure to appeal to those running programs that need plenty of RAM. You see, apart from the fast 3rd Gen Intel Core i7-3610QM processor and respectable NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M, it has a whopping 8GB of RAM. This is going to come into play for those doing heavy video or image editing, and in general it allows for pretty aggressive multi-tasking as well. The plastic exterior isn't as impressive as a metal chassis, but for the price the specs on offer are still pretty attractive overall.

See a summary of the specs below.
The P850 features a 3rd Gen Intel Core i7-3610QM (2.3GHz), a new high-end processor that’s noticeably faster than a 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2670QM. In addition to being powerful it has better power management, allowing for longer usage between recharges.
It comes with a mid-range dedicated graphics card called the NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M. It’s a reasonably powerful mid-range component that should have no problems with modern games.
8GB of RAM is enough to either run many programs at once fluidly or run very intensive image and video editing software.
A large 750GB hard disk drive provides plenty of room for a reasonably large collection of files including movies and music.
The P850 sports a 15.6in (1,366 x 768 resolution) gloss screen. The resolution is average for the screen size.
Because it weighs 2.66kg and is 31.4mm thick, the P850 is of average weight for a notebook and should be straightforward to carry around.
