Opening up the L750 gave us a brief 1970s flashback moment. The silver pattern on the L750's case has a slight disco ball effect, especially under bright lighting. This sort of thing is always a matter of taste; for every person who thinks it's unnecessarily gaudy, there will be one who finds it gorgeous and appealing. Wherever you sit on that spectrum, there's no denying that the L750 is eye catching.
There are two models of the L750 on the market; the model that CNET tested was the cheaper AU$899 Satellite L750/03C PSK1WA-03C00R. You'll forgive us if we just call it the L750, we trust.
The L750 features an Intel Core i5 2410M 2.3GHz processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory and a 15.6-inch 1366x768 16:9 LCD display screen. Storage comes from a 640GB internal hard drive. The optical drive is a DVD SuperMulti Dual Layer burner. Video output is via VGA only; if you want HDMI you'll have to upgrade to the AU$999 Satellite L750/04K PSK2YA-04K010 model. That upgraded model also features USB 3.0, whereas the L750 we tested makes do with only USB 2.0 ports.
