Toshiba Satellite Pro A200-EZ2204X Review


A no-frills business notebook that delivers what you expect for less than $1,000.

Reasonably priced, Minimal bloatware

Lacks wireless N connectivity, No fingerprint reader, Display has narrow viewing angle

Toshiba Satellite P200 Review


Toshiba's P200-MB105C is a 17" desktop replacement model targeted at the mainstream PC user: small office/home office and students

Nice looking notebook ; Good 17" screen ; Quality HDD and optical drives ; Good build quality ; Does not feel bulky ; Toshiba 1 year warranty

Funky keyboard ; Could use a bigger battery ; At MSRP, there are better deals to be had

My advice would be to think long and hard about whether you need all that screen real estate. For the same money, you can find better performers in the 15” screen notebook category (including models from Toshiba)

Toshiba Satellite P200


If you want performance in a desktop replacement form factor then the Toshiba Satellite P200 is a good option, if not a particularly stylish one.

Excellent performance, Bright, colourful screen, Solid construction

No digital outputs, Short battery life, A little stodgy looking compared to other gaming laptops, Lacking PCMCIA

Toshiba Satellite Pro A200-EZ2204X Laptop


This business-minded budget portable delivers features and performance appropriate for the price.

Decent performance for the price; large, bright screen

Bland design; cheap-feeling case; short battery life; just 1GB of RAM; not suitable for 3D graphics

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Toshiba Satellite A200 (PSAE3A-07M007)


A cheap workhorse

Cheap price, excellent usability, large hard drive for price bracket

Low battery life, slow processor

Although the Satellite A200 is a fairly good unit, its competitors often provide faster network connectivity at similar prices. For a healthy mix of cheap pricing and good hard drive space, the A200 is a solid choice.

The Toshiba provides some of the most impressive performance and usability we’ve seen at this price, and is a great home laptop for the whole family. Its HD compatible graphics card delivers oustanding 3D power for full multimedia use, and its stunning...

Toshiba Satellite P200 (PSPB6A-0CS04M)


Just weeks ago the Toshiba Satellite P200 (PSPB6A-0CS04M) would have been joining the ranks of high-end entertainment machines we've reviewed. Unfortu...

HDMI port, Harman Kardon speakers

HD-DVD player is no longer supported with any future movie releases but still adds cost to this notebook; not a high-definition screen

It's a shame to have to minus points from this notebook because of the HD-DVD player, but its limited utility is unavoidable. Otherwise it's a powerful and functional desktop replacement with plenty of media features.
