Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A215-S4757

60% Toshiba Satellite A215-S4757

The Satellite A215 offers decent multimedia features, but could use a turbocharge. Toshiba's Satellite A215-S4757 offers a decent assortment of multimedia components at a reasonable price, but its low-end AMD processor is no match for similarly priced Intel-based notebooks. The Toshiba Satellite A215-S4757 won't blow you away with blazing speed or 3D muscle, which makes it tough to recommend. On the other hand, you do get some nice multimedia features and a large hard drive.

Performance was underwhelming. While the machine is zippy enough for answering e-mail, Web surfing, and word processing, the A215-S4757's overall WorldBench 6 Beta 2 score of 60 put it in a tie with an Asus A8JR-4P021C for the lowest mark among 13 recently tested laptops, and is almost 20 percent behind the average score of 74. The battery lasted 2.3 hours on one charge, about an hour shorter than the average of 3.2 hours for this laptop class. You can buy a nine-cell battery pack for an extra $135. Toshiba's Satellite A215-S4757 is far from the speediest notebook on the block, but if you need a second or third inexpensive family PC to keep everyone happy, you could do a lot worse.

Comment

ATI Radeon Xpress X1200: This is an onboard video chip and according AMD optimized for a good price/value. It is based on a X700 design but with less pixel- and vertex-pipelines. ATI Radeon Xpress X1200 is hardly apt for gamers. The graphic chip supports Windows Vista Aero surface and all 3D effects run fluently. Sometimes also called Radeon X1200.

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

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-56:

In 90nm (33W TDP) and 65nm (31W TDP) produced dual core processor with a clock rate of 1.8 GHz. The TL-56 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear.
