Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L670-12J
Few notebooks combine the power of an Intel Core i5 processor with a 17.3in high-res display for under £630. In doing so, Toshiba has created a tasty prospect in the form of the Satellite L670-12J. Designed as a desktop replacement for everyday computing, the notebook is competitively priced, finished in a sleek new design, and offers plenty of 2D performance.

Portability may be limited and a dedicated GPU sorely missed, but the Satellite L670-12J is a strong performer and a highly usable laptop easily recommended as a desktop replacement machine.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
