The Toshiba Satellite S875/S870 is a 17-inch notebook available in a range of configurations priced between $700 and $1000. The Satellite S875-S7356 comes with a 17.3-inch glossy LED HD+ display (1600×900 resolution), Windows 8, an Intel Core i5 processor and a 750GB hard drive. It lacks a touchscreen — which would have given it a more compelling Windows 8 experience — but it still represents a great value for those looking to buy a traditional 17-inch notebook.
