Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L300
Source: Trusted Reviews
It's not often that we see a laptop from an established brand at a price point as low as the £350 that will get you Toshiba's 15.4in Satellite L300-29T. In fact, this makes it the cheapest laptop we've ever reviewed, so let's find out if it's an absolute bargain or has had a few too many corners cut. Despite its decent chassis, excellent speakers and above-average screen, Toshiba's Satellite L300-29T can barely handle <st1:place w:st="on">Vista</st1:place> because of its 1GB of RAM, making it a poor choice unless you're prepared to upgrade the RAM yourself.

The Toshiba Satellite L300-13R is a decent laptop with solid specs and so-so build quality. However, at virtually the same price as the Acer Aspire 5920 Gemstone, the Satellite L300-13R's performance and feature set simply can't compete. For almost the same price, you'd be a fool not to buy the Acer over the the Toshiba Satellite L300-13R.

The L300's weight and short battery life mean it's not suitable for road warriors. But if you're looking for a basic, no-nonsense laptop for use around the home then its sub-£400 price tag and sturdy build quality make it an attractive option.

The Toshiba Satellite L300 won't suit everyone, as its base specification isn't powerful enough for anything but the most basic of tasks. However, if you just need something for surfing the web or responding to email, this is a great machine at a bargain price.
