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

Toshiba Satellite A200 (PSAE3A-07M007)

 

The Toshiba Satellite A200 (PSAE3A-07M007) is a solid entry-level workhorse that offers excellent usability for the low cost of $1,099. The price drop...

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.

Toshiba Satellite P200 (PSPB6A-0CS04M)

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.

The Toshiba Satellite A200 is a solid workhorse of a machine with plenty of processing power under its hood. Without question, it's the best A200 we have tested to date.

Sturdy construction build, Harman Kardon speakers, performed solidly in all areas

The workmanlike design is unlikely to appeal to fashion aficionados
