Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A350D-202

70% Toshiba Satellite A350D-202 - 16in Multimedia Notebook Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Toshiba's Satellite A350D-202 is an interesting alternative to its A350-11N, correcting some of the failings of 11N while shifting the focus to a machine that's more suitable as a desktop replacement and will even handle a bit of gaming. If this is what you're after, it's a good option, but the combination of worse CPU performance, mediocre battery life and a higher price mean there are pros and cons to consider first.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650: The Hd 3650 is a middle class graphics card (in 2008) and compareable to an 8600M GT GPU from Nvidia. It is fabricated in 55nm process and due to Avivo video engine the graphic card can support the processor with several video operations (HD video too).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Turion X2 Ultra: The AMD Turion X2 Ultra is part of the Puma platform and a mixture of the old K9 core (form the Turion 64 X2) and some parts of the K10 architecture (memorycontroller, hypertransport, crossbar switch from the Phenom). Because of the increased L2 cache ("Ultra" CPUs) and the improved memory controller, the performance increased a bit. Still a similar clocked Core 2 Duo is noticably faster.


ZM-80:

Mixture out of two K8 based cores and K10 uncores (e.g. memory controller). Offers improved power saving functions compared to older Turion CPUs but still not as good and fast as a Core 2 Duo. The ZM-80 is the slowest CPU of the ZM series and a entry level CPU in 2008.

16.0": 16 inch display-variants exist since 2008 and partially got the market share of 15 inch notebooks. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
