Toshiba's A300 certainly stands out in a crowd, but its battery life means you won't be out in the crowds for long.

Stylish design, Excellent keyboard, Good overall performance

Casing feels flimsy, Gets hot quite quickly, Average battery life

Toshiba Satellite Pro A300-1OQ review

 

A budget corporate laptop offering great quality and equally impressive usability

eSATA port ; Good build quality ; Great battery life

Intel Pentium CPU ; Integrated graphics ; Only 1GB of RAM

A good corporate machine that will happily run a few office programs at once but it will suffer playing the latest games

Toshiba Satellite A300 (PSAGCA-09Y01N)

 

A great Toshiba laptop for home, work and uni.

Sleep-and-charge USB 2.0 ports, FM tuner, HDMI, 4GB RAM, relatively light

Slightly sluggish, needs a larger screen resolution, short battery life

The Toshiba Satellite A300 is comfortable to use, looks good, and has plenty of ports. It's performance was a little slow in our CPU tests, but overall it's a great laptop for the home or office.
