In practice, the Satellite S50 and S70 are ideal for users who work with graphics that use multimedia content or playing on PC. The frame is made of aluminum, it has a thickness of less than 25 mm and weighs just over 2kg, making the system very compact and durable despite the diagonal of the screen.

The RAM can achieve 16GB, while Nvidia will sign the optional graphics cards. On board will form a 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, as well as a SD card slot, USB Sleep & Charge and an HDMI port.
