Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A215-S6804
Source: Comp Reviews
For those looking for strong performance for your dollar, the Toshiba Satellite A215-S6804 is probably your best bet. Between its strong dual core processor from AMD and the extremely large 250GB hard drive, there is little that it can do wrong. About the only thing to really be concerned with is its less than average battery life.
