Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100


Wireless-ready one-bay notebook doesn't perform as well as its predecessor.

Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 Notebook (Toshiba-PS610UJM3N89)


Though a weak follow-on to the Satellite Pro 6000 in the performance department, this 2-GHz version of the 6100 (which is also available with a 1.7-GHz or 1.8-GHz Pentium 4-M processor) would make a good primary office machine thanks to its huge hard...

Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100


Toshiba's successful Satellite line is best known in consumer circles, yet the Satellite Pro is a professional desktop replacement, sold directly by Toshiba. At first glance, the Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 looks much bigger than it really is: All the...

"Garbage Run and stay away"



NONE I MEAN NONE IF IT IS BATTERY LAST if you can get on it long enough BESIDES THAT

I have never had a computer that messes up so much and I work on them keep asking for a cmos battery and have new cmos put in and still having that problem.Locks up all the time and for no reason just locks up. Run dont look back! Worse laptop ever

I got this laptop for nothing, a friend had i... 

The keyboard has a nice feel, the screen is clear, easy on the eye, 1024x768, the 2GHz CPU and 1GB RAM is enough grunt for most office and web surfing activities. 802.11g networking with WPA2 allows it to participate in my home and work networks

Flimsy case design, this allowed the power supply PCB to detach, hence why I got it for nothing, it was technically dead. The HDD is very slow and noisy, the CPU gets quite hot, the lid is flimsy, battery life of about an hour. No USB2 or firewire

I like its 15.4" 1440x1050 non glossy screen and its nvidia video card with 32 mb of dedicated memory. The 2.0 intel Pentium 4 processor is good for the average use I give to this machine at my office and for my academic stuff. Good sound and wifi

It has only two usb ports and they are 1.0 so they are very slow. There is no firewire port and no bluetooth

Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 Notebook (Toshiba-PS610UJM3N89)


We bought 2 of these to replace our older 1.06Ghz Pentium III notebooks from another manufacturer. We were impressed with the memory (512MB) and Hard Drive (60Gb) capacity compared to similar units from other manufacturers. Most systems that fit into...

Very fast, Lots of memory, big hard drive, excellent display

No built in floppy drive
