Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A665-11Z

90% Toshiba Satellite A665: Notebook in 3D
Source: Inside HW English
After a few days spent with this PC, it’s a tad difficult to kiss it goodbye. Excellent finish, pleasant and functional design, remarkable hardware components, 3D capabilities, Windows Media Centre support, 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium, TV tuner with RC… The attributes list seems endless. Toshiba has managed to fulfil its own goals perfectly with this Satellite newborn - it’s the ultimate multimedia machine. Luckily for all potential users, this request has not been an easy task to accomplish, and strong hardware which was required to back it all up is perfectly suited for other uses as well (office, business or gaming). The only thing to reproach is the rather anaemic battery, which provides the bare minimum of autonomy. We believe that this was conditioned by the need to cut back on the price somewhere, so this isn’t something to be too critical about. Toshiba’s Satellite A665-11T is well in front of its competitors in many regards, and set an example for a 3D notebook leader, one which will be difficult to dethrone. Finally, the attractive looks and excellently designed texture of the PC that keeps zero fingerprints were the things that we fancied the most.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 350M: According to the released informations, the Geforce GTS 350M should be just a renamed GTS 250M. In the Toshiba A663 it is however a bit lower clocked.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


740QM:

The Core i7-740QM is a high-end quad-core CPU for laptops (in 2010) with a relative small base clock rate and a high Turbo Boost max frequency of 2.93 GHz (for one core). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow clocked quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 740QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.

15.6": 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. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


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