Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite M100

Just fine for business
Source: Star Techcentral English
Overall the M100 is a decent laptop that can perform under pressure, thanks to its dual-core processor. Its light weight and low heat output also make it very versatile. The fingerprint recognition software is a cool feature to have and definitely helps improve the laptop's overall security. The inclusion of Toshiba proprietary software also makes it a worthwhile buy if you are a first time laptop user. So, if you are looking for a notebook strictly reserved for work and can live with the fact it isn't the best entertainment centre, then the M100 might be right for you.

Toshiba Satellite M100 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
I'm extremely impressed with my Toshiba Satellite M100. It's a beautifully designed, powerful machine and it is very, very light. It is a really good choice for those who intend to use it as I do: for school and entertainment and medium to good quality gaming. It stands up solidly to competitors, and in my opinion, is much prettier than most equivalent computers. Its price is amazing compared to other machines of its size and quality, and with dedicated graphics, it is a force to be reckoned with. The few problems I have with it are very minor and only because I had such high expectations. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with my purchase and like my computer more every day.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
