We’ve been continually impressed with Toshiba notebooks lately, and the M300 continues that trend. We love the look, how the keyboard feels, and the display is one of the best we’ve seen. And the fact that it’s just $1,149 is fantastic too, as a lot of business notebooks are far more expensive. Like all Toshibas, there’s the typical bloatware installed, so you’ll have to go through a cleansing ritual after purchase, but that shouldn’t take longer than a half-hour or so. And once it’s cleaned up, it’ll be a darn good notebook, though we’re surprised Toshiba decided to forego including any security features on a notebook intended for business. This is easily the M300’s biggest drawback, and could be a deal-breaker in some corporate environments. If not, we can easily recommend the M300 as it’s a fine all-purpose notebook that is comfortable to use and won’t break your back or your wallet.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T8300: The Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 was at the time of announcement a fast dual-core CPU for laptops with 3 MB level 2 cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.1":

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
