Review Toshiba Satellite P300-212 Notebook

 

Flood of Models. Toshiba expands its range of 17" Satellite P300

Stability; Integrated speaker; Chic & elegant look; Performance; Well located terminals; Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR

Louder than average on-load operation combined with a high operating temperature; Beamwidth too narrow; Limited battery life

There are more than enough alternatives from other prestigious manufacturers in this price segment. Examples include the HP dv7 Series, the Dell Studio XPS 16, Inspiron 1750, and the Acer Aspire 8935G,...

Toshiba Portege Z935-P300

 

Editors' note: According to Toshiba's specification information for the Portege Z935-P300, the RAM is not user upgradeable. However, one of our readers, "fozzyfozborne," confirms that while 2GB of the Z935-P300 memory is fixed to the motherboard, there...

The Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 has very good features, performance, and battery life for its price and is very thin and very light.

The Z935-P300's keyboard may be too small for some users and the laptop doesn't feel particularly sturdy, especially the lid/display.

The Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 is an excellent ultrabook value if you can overlook its few design shortcomings.

Toshiba Portege Z935-P300

 

The Toshiba Portege Z935 is the fastest and lightest 13-inch Ultrabook you can get for the price.

Lightest 13-inch Ultrabook; Strong performance with fast SSD; Speedy boot time; Good battery life

Key travel somewhat shallow; Reflective screen

Click to EnlargeThe Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 is an Ultrabook to be reckoned with. Like last year's version, it's super-light at 2.4 pounds, but a stronger performer, thanks to the combination of a third-gen Intel Core processor and faster SSD. We just...

Toshiba Portege Z935-P300

 

The Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 is an ultrabook that makes very few concessions in the name of light weight and thin construction. On our benchmark test, it was powerful enough to hold its own against a much more expensive, high-end ultrabook. With an...

Very Light. Very thin. Good battery life. Speedy SSD. Full sized HDMI, Ethernet, and VGA. Good benchmark performance

Chrome mouse buttons attract fingerprints. Could use another USB 3.0 port

The Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 is an ultrabook that makes very few concessions in the name of lightweight and thin construction. It's a powerful system with a very good battery life, and it's our new Editors' Choice for mainstream ultrabook laptops.

Toshiba Satellite Pro P300 (PSPCDA-00L00D)

 

As the desktop replacement notebook market fills up, the Toshiba Satellite Pro P300 (PSPCDA-00L00D) finds itself either matched or outpaced in almost ...

Sleep and Charge USB connections, e-SATA, excellent usability, large hard drive capacity

Unattractive design, no HDMI, no high-end multimedia features, doesn't match up to competitors

Although the Toshiba Satellite Pro P300 (PSPCDA-00L00D) is a fast system with Toshiba's noteworthy Sleep and Charge USB ports and plenty of hard drive space, the unattractive design and lack of features when compared to similarly priced units mean that...

Opinion was divided in the Shopper office as to whether the P300's curvy, glossy chassis looks suave and sophisticated or tacky and dated.

Toshiba Satellite Pro P300-14P review

 

Faced with the choice of a compact and lightweight mini laptop or a full-size notebook with a faster processor, some people will lean towards the latter for screen size alone. In this case the Toshiba Satellite Pro P300-14P will be of special interest.

The Toshiba Satellite Pro P300-14P's big screen makes prolonged working a whole lot easier. Provided it's to be run mostly from the mains, the Toshiba Satellite Pro P300's disappointing battery life shouldn't be an issue. This is a lot of laptop for...

Travel-weary businesspeople will appreciate Toshiba's latest Portégé model, the Portégé Z935 Ultrabook. Not only is this laptop business-ready, with features such as a VGA-out port (for hooking up to a projector) and WiDi (see next paragraph), it's one...

For other business users--those who travel often and want to get work done on the fly--the Portégé Z935 is a poor choice. The keyboard and trackpad definitely need some work, and the overall construction doesn't seem very sturdy. Plus, multimedia...
