Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437

63% Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437
Source: CNet English
Priced at $899, the Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437 is one of the two cheapest systems in our roundup of sub-$1,000 laptops. Given that low price, it's no surprise that the Satellite (along with its compatriot, the $899 Gateway M-1618) incorporates a low-cost AMD Turion 64 X2 processor. It's also no surprise that the Satellite A215-S7437 fell right in the middle of the pack on our performance benchmarks, and that its battery punked out after just an hour and a half on our drain test. If you can squeeze just $100 more into your laptop-buying budget, you might consider a faster and longer-lived system, such as the Sony VAIO CR120. But for $899, the Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437 presents an attractive design and solid feature set.

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-58:

In 65nm (31W TDP) produced dual core processor with a clock rate of 1.9 GHz. The TL-58 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.
