Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L775D-S7206
At a discount price of $599, I am simply not pleased with this notebook for obvious reasons. The LCD panel doesn't perform well for modern standards, the CPU won't run at full Turbo speed, and the physical GPU advertised was a lie and doesn't exist. I'd say this notebook runs like an OLD Dual-Core with a faulty wireless adapter. The notebook handles 2D video performance for Blu-Ray playback fluidly with no skips or hiccups on a 17" display, and that's the ONLY reason to purchase it. It's essentially just a stable 17" Blu-ray player at a sub-par 1600x900 native resolution with the added bonus of bad viewing angles.

I won't lie, I was looking forward to doing this review as an opportunity to weigh in with my peers on Llano, and that's largely because I do think we've been a bit unfair to it and I see the value in it. Jarred's concern regarding AMD's Fusion APUs is a fair one: released right now they're alright, but they're really a year or two late. It's true, but I'm not convinced it's entirely fair.

AMD Radeon HD 6520G:
Integrated processor graphics card (in the A6-Series of Llano APUs) without dedicated graphics memory and only 320 of the 400 shader cores.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
