Review Toshiba Satellite L100-120 Notebook

 

Old School. After one got used to all these notebooks with wide s ...

Matt screen, high brightness, Limited heating up, Quiet operation, 4300mAh battery, Comfortable keyboard

Wobbling lid, No card reader, Diminutive touchpad, Indicator lights invisible after closing the lid, PCMCIA release difficult to put back into the case

Considering the price of the computer, the speakers are alright. Sometimes, they sound a little brassy

The CPU is actually not one of the stronger performers in today's budget range and has now been superseded by the Yonah Core based Celeron-M 400 series. AMD's Sempron range also performs slightly better in the same price range and the Celeron is...

The Toshiba Satellite Pro L100 makes a lot of sense as a budget machine. More than that it makes a lot of sense as a budget light gaming machine offering a surprising amount of gaming performance given it’s spec, however it should certainly not be...

Toshiba Satellite P100-222 Review (pics, specs)

 

I'm a big time gamer and like to watch movies on my laptop. I wanted a machine that I could carry around every once in a while and have it rest on my desk the rest of the time. The most important issue was the graphics card. I don't have a desktop PC...

Great quality build Excellent 17" screen Quality HDD with plenty of space Core Duo processor NVIDIA 7900GS graphics card Not bad battery life (considering the power and size of the notebook)

Keyboard takes some getting used to HDD could have been 7200rpm Ram should have been 667 MHz

I'm not a big fan of 17" desktop replacements. I prefer laptops that you can actually put on your lap. With this though, I have no regrets and am enjoying the power very much. It's like having a future proof laptop that you know will last. At under 8...

Toshiba Satellite P100 and P105 Review (pics, specs)

 

The Toshiba Satellite P100 is a 17-inch screen desktop replacement laptop that uses the Intel Core Duo processor. The Satellite P105 17-inch is a similar Toshiba notebook and this full review of the P100 can be applied to both models.

Nice looking notebook Terrific 17" Screen Great platform Quality HDD and Optical drives Good audio reproduction Excellent build quality Does not feel bulky ConfigFree software Toshiba 1 year warranty

Could use a bigger battery The NVIDIA Go 7300 is a bit underpowered Power brick is huge

Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9772

 

Toshiba's out to prove that you don't need glitz, glowing innards, or Falcon or Alien designs to make a powerful gaming machine. The latest addition to the gaming line Toshiba launched last year, the Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9772 ($2,899 direct) is...

Excellent gaming scores. Relatively light gaming laptop. Gorgeous 17-inch widescreen. DVI-D out

Dull design. Should offer a standard HD DVD drive with the price or at least as an option

The dull looks might not impress you, but the Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9772 is a hard-core gaming laptop that churns out excellent frame rates.

Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9772 Laptop

 

The fixed-configuration Satellite P100-ST9772 doesn't offer the blazing speeds and customization options found in high-end gaming notebooks, but fraggers looking to save some dough will appreciate its high-end components and solid performance.

Excellent components for the price; lots of ports, connections; good speakers; respectable gaming performance; costs $1,000 less than Dell's XPS M1710

Plain chassis might disappoint gamers; noisy keyboard; no customization options; not as fast as the XPS M1710; poor battery life

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