Toshiba Satellite 5100-501

 

Elegant, schnell und vergleichsweise preisgünstig - das Satellite 5100-501 mit 1,7 GHz MP4-M-Prozessor ist ein großartiges Entertainment-Gerät, doch...

Schnell ; Neueste Features ; Steckplätze für SmartMedia- und Secure Digital-Karten ; Hervorragende Lautsprecher ; Vernünftiger Preis

Kurze Akkulebensdauer ; Einjährige Garantie

Zehn aktuelle Notebooks im Test

 

Schnelles 3D-Notebook: Die Nvidia-Grafik GeForce4 Go 440 mit 32 MByte DDR-Speicher und der 845er-Chipsatz von Intel sorgen für eine außergewöhnliche 3D-Spieleleistung.

Ausgezeichnete 3D-Leistung ; Prima Display, hohe Auflösung ; Gelungene Ausstattung

Recht kurze Akkulaufzeit

Das sehr gute Display bietet mit seiner hohen Auflösung eine Menge Platz für Fenster. Gewöhnungsbedürftig – wie immer – die Tastatur: Den Eindruck einer nahezu perfekten Mechanik stört nur die seltsame Toshiba-Belegung
