Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A100

Gaming Notebook Roundup
Source: Inside HW English
Toshiba Satellite A100-912 cannot pride itself on top-notch performance and P100's quality, but nevertheless has things to offer. Just like the LG S1, it has a fingerprint reader. Not just because of that, this couple has a lot of similarities. Even at first glance, it is easy to deduce that they belong to the same category, mostly due to the (very good) production quality.

A notebook for all seasons: Toshiba's Satellite A100 / A105
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The A100 is a great value in the configuration that I tested. It offers performance that will be significantly faster than units in this price range with either shared memory video systems or lower-end dedicated video systems such as the GeForce Go 7300 and 7400 or ATI X1400. With the A100's excellent hardware specifications and the current promotion in Canada offering free Student/Teacher Microsoft Office with this notebook the only other thing a student will need is a carrying bag. Props to Toshiba for making this so easy.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon X1400: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 is part of the lower middle class. The performance can be compared with an elder X600, but technically it is a X1300, which is scarcely 100 Mhz higher clocked.

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

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)
