Toshiba Satellite X200 (PSPBUA-00N007)


The Toshiba Satellite X200 (PSPBUA-00N007) is the second of Toshiba's high-end gaming notebooks we've looked at and we like its style. It's Toshiba's...

HD-DVD ROM, HDMI output, SLI graphics, nice screen, Harmon Kardon speakers

Heavy and not comfortably portable, no e-SATA

It's not the kind of notebook you want to carry around with you everywhere, but it's a powerful desktop replacement that will provide plenty of entertainment.

Toshiba Satellite X200-20s Laptop


Toshiba notebooks have long fallen into two distinct camps: there are those machines for the office worker and then there is the amazing Qosmio line of machines aimed at the high-end multimedia user. However, Toshiba has never played in the gaming end...

Great look, good screen and comfortable keyboard, HD DVD drive built in

Not the most powerful gamer

The overall quality of the Satellite X200-20s, as this is one of the most appealing heavyweight notebooks we’ve come across in a long time and certainly gives the likes of Alienware and Dell a run for their money.

Toshiba Satellite X200 (PSPB9A-02J022)


Perhaps it's the smell of Christmas in the air, looming ever so close, or perhaps it's the imminent release of some big game titles, but everyone is j...

HD-DVD-R drive, dual-function touchpad, Harmon Kardon speakers, HDMI

Lower than expected WorldBench 6 score, low resolution screen for an HD-DVD notebook

Although it didn't score as well as we'd hoped in WorldBench 6, the gaming results were good and the inclusion of an HD-DVD-R drive is an excellent bonus.

Toshiba Satellite X200


The Toshiba Satellite X200 is something of a wolf in sheep's clothing. On the outside, it's a stylish and dignified machine, with a subtly mottled maroon casing protected by a useful leather bag. On the inside, this boardroom elegance is thrust aside...

The Lexus of portable computing. Great features powered by impressive hardware.

Toshiba Satellite X200 20S gaming laptop


Toshiba has done well with the Toshibe Satellite X200 20S, delivering a powerful, well-featured and attractive laptop.

Combining quality, durability and style the Satellite X220 gives more established gaming notebook manufacturers a run for their money. It comes up trumps with its high WorldBench and FEAR scores and is a joy to use. This is topped off by a high...

Toshiba Satellite X200


Pure gaming thrill - Powerful graphics and thunderous sound in a flare carmine design, the Satellite X200 is for gaming purists. Fully packed with unique Toshiba EasyMedia features.

The Harmon Kardon 5.1 sound system is outstanding.

Design just doesn't feel right, very boxy.
