Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L630-ST2N04

60% Toshiba Satellite L630-ST2N04 13.3-inch Ultraportable Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Toshiba's Satellite L630-ST2N04 is a decent machine especially considering its price that falls under $700. Performance is good and the storage features are a step up from many 13-inch laptops. The downside is that this laptop is certainly larger and heavier than much of the competition, even if they also have an internal DVD drive.

380M: The Core i3-380M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.53 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
