Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P100

90% Gaming Notebook Roundup

Although many associate Toshiba's name with business notebook models, it seems that they have unexpectedly good gamer-oriented models on the market. Toshiba Satellite P100-324 is undoubtedly the definitive star of this test.

Toshiba Satellite P100 and P105 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Toshiba's P100 series is a really nice home computer. It packs more punch than many desktops into a very small amount of space. With more than enough power for typical home computing tasks the P100 would be a fine choice as a family computer. Build quality is excellent and it does not get hot or loud. Its smart looks won't look out of place in your environment. Value is a little tougher to measure. With its big screen and quality components I think the P100-J100 in particular seems to be a good value (and I have seen it at retailers for about $100 less MSRP). Suggestions to Toshiba: I might use a slightly stronger video processor as there is a huge difference between the Go 7300 used in this model and the Go 7900 GS used in the opt of the line gamer edition of the P100. The P100's beautiful screen cries out for games.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS: This is the smaller version of the 7900 GTX with less shader- and vertex-pipelines and less current consumption. Nevertheless it is not apt for small notebooks. The performance is near to the 7800 GTX, but needs clearly less energy. It was used in 17" notebooks, because of heat issues.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics 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)


T2400: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.2 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.
