Toshiba Satellite A70 Review (pics, specs)


The 15.4 widescreen Toshiba Satellite A70 is a desktop replacement style notebook that uses a Pentium 4 desktop processor instead of a typical notebook Pentium M processor. This article provides a full review of this laptop.

Powerful notebook Beautifully crisp and clear widescreen Sturdy construction from a reputable manufacturer

Shared graphics card Poor Battery life Memory card reader doesn't support Compact Flash Heavy for using to carry around, best used as a desktop replacement style notebook

Featuring a 3.46Ghz Pentium 4 processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 60GB hard drive for $3200 (NZ), this notebook is powerful and has plenty of room for the user to grow into it.

Excellent notebook. Very clear lcd with excellent dvd playback quality. Not mentioned in the Communication Specs is that this notebook has integrated wireless lan. Gives me an excellent signal all the time vs two other wireless adapters i've used that...
