70% Toshiba Satellite A200-180 laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
The Toshiba A200-180 is more of a desktop replacement PC than a slim portable laptop that can be whisked from location to location. Its considerable bulk means you won't want to carry it for long distances, while its battery life is limited. The Toshiba Satellite A200-180 lasted for just 78 minutes in our intensive tests. There are, however, some nice features to compensate. With its 1.86GHz processor, the Toshiba Satellite A200-180 is reasonably powerful and, with the help of 1GB of DDR RAM, scored an acceptable 62 points in our WorldBench speed benchmark. You also get a nice range of connectivity options (802.11a, b and g Wi-Fi are all supported), while the 6-in-1 card reader and quartet of USB ports are extremely useful. In contrast to the Toshiba Satellite A100 we reviewed recently, a 1.3Mp camera is included, although there's still no Bluetooth. And, more surprising in light of the emphasis on multimedia, no TV tuner.

83% Review Toshiba Satellite A200-1O6 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Consumer Market Notebook. The Toshiba Satellite A200 is one of the reasonable consumer notebooks. Equipped with moderate hardware, these focus on price-conscious customers. This notebook is optimized for typical office and Internet applications. Nonetheless, it has a appealing case, which looks good on every desk. Because it is equipped with an ATI Radeon HD 2400 video card you can also run non-demanding multimedia applications.

Toshiba reviews


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

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

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 is part of the lower performance segment and the competitor card of the ATI X1300. Technically it is simply lower clocked GeForce Go 7300.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400: This DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI is the direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS graphic card for laptops. It features the Avivo HD video engine. The performance is not enaough for DX 10 games and high settings.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T7200: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core.

T7100: Entry level to mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core.

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)

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.

2.6 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

2.73 kg:


79.2%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
