Toshiba Satellite M30 Review

 

Good build quality, Excellent overall performance, Express Media Player, Very Bright and crisp display, Good speakers (for a laptop)

Battery life could be a bit longer, Some keyboard flex, Latch could be stronger, Somewhat noisy optical drive (as stated in the Acer WLMi review), Somewhat expensive at it's normal price

Toshiba Satellite M30 series

 

If you're looking for style, the Satellite M30 series is worth a gander; otherwise, hold out for better thin-and-light notebooks.

The Satellite M30 series is the most pro-business Satellite yet.

Product Specifications

The Satellite M30 Series offers savvy users the power, battery life, and connectivity of Intel Centrino Mobile Technology. The 15.4" Wide XGA display allows spreadsheets to be viewed side-by-side on a single screen - great for Excel users. Frequent flyers love how the improved form factor fits airline tray tables! NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 graphics, rich harman/kardon stereo sound, and Microsoft Office OneNote 2003 make the M30 Series the perfect tool for presentations and note-taking.
