Toshiba Satellite P300-1FP review

 

Toshiba's P300 offers impressive value and performance, but is bettered in some instances by its rivals

Excellent value ; Good build quality

Poor graphics performance ; Inadequate hard drive

It may not be stunning performer, but the price makes up for it

Toshiba P300-1FP

 

Very quick computer, was easy to set up & get started. No problems to report.

Battery doesn't last very long & the computer is quite heavy.

Toshiba P300-1FP

 

It seems to work well with very little effort to set up and use. Good performance on tasks tried so far. Good performance but as it was kept wrapped up and only given as a birthday present while on holiday with no wireless (or any other internet)...

It's a bit heavy/bulky compared to notebooks and smaller laptops but still great as a small, portable and genuine alternative to a desktop. Not as fashionable in it's design and general look as competitors (Dell, Apple etc).

Great price for a very reliable laptop, we think TOSHIBA offer best value for money in the medium range laptops

Rather heavy and poor battery life, but its what we expect for this price range.We have replaced a TOSHIBA HD laptop which cost more than three times tis model
