Toshiba Portege R700: Quality With Price
Source: Inside HW English

The only multimedia segment that this notebook can't cope with is gaming, as expected. Intel's integrated graphics card may be doing its best, but fresh titles can't go over 20 fps even at lowest settings. Naturally, any game older than, say, two years will work just fine (at lowest detail levels). The sound subsystem is nothing to be envious about - what's more, the sound is reminiscent of bedside radios. Therefore, the speakers will serve their purpose, but if you wish for a higher quality solution, you'll have to look for an external solution. Battery autonomy allows for less ambitious excursions, and the thing we have to reproach in this department is the very slow charger, which takes an eternity to charge the battery once it's been significantly drained. We hope that the problem was specific to our sample. As far as other flaws, not many are present, the largest of which is major heating on the left side of the notebook. Whenever the notebook was put under full load, the part left of the Tab key seemed hot enough to cause minor burns. Still, we dared to test out theory and the consequences weren't nearly as dramatic. After all, winter's on its way, rumoured to be the coldest one in years... The second and perhaps tallest of obstacles for buying this PC is its very high price. It may be justified up to a point with top production quality, choice of materials and hardware, as well as the very Toshiba brand. The PC is also factory-shipped with Office Starter and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit preinstalled, none of which are dirt cheap. However, we feel that most users won't find these qualities to be redeeming enough and that they'll turn elsewhere in search for a cheaper variant. Those who wish for a high-quality, ultra-portable 13” notebook will, however, be catered for by this model.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

450M: Should be similar to the Core i5-520M but without AES functions.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
