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 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

What did I do without it!


A high-capacity battery is a must for anyone traveling or in a lot of meetings of school.

My battery life went from not to around 8 hours of web browsing and word processing on my Tecra M2

If I had to complain about something it would be the added weight, but that should be expected

A laptop that convinces

Quality, design

The webcam, sound a bit low
