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

Toshiba Satellite Pro L300D-EZ1001V Review


Despite what Toshiba says, we suggest you think of the Satellite Pro L300D-EZ1001V as a consumer machine: With the exception of a crapware-free desktop, it has no features tailored for mobile professionals. Before you buy, consider the Fujitsu LifeBook...

Strong wireless performance, Comes with minimal crapware, Good viewing angles

Long boot-up time, Small hard drive, Shorter battery life than expected

Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9772


The Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9772's frame rates—not its design—are what's impressive about this gaming laptop.

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.

Toshiba Satellite Pro L100 Review Page 2


The CPU is actually not one of the stronger performers in today's budget range and has now been superseded by the Yonah Core based Celeron-M 400 series.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...

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-ST9772 Laptop Review and Ratings


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
