The 7900GS can handle the latest FPS games like a champ. The 1440x900 resolution allows you to enable antialiasing and anisotropic filtering to all your favorites. In many games it is twice as fast as a 6800Ultra/7800 Go GPUs. Toshiba finally gives us a true gaming laptop. After having huge 17" multimedia monsters like the Qosmio, they now offer one of the top gaming performance to boot. Perfect for Lan parties, or just showing off to your friends how much faster your laptop is to their PCs!

They say it's always the quiet ones that are the most dangerous. This very able dual-core gaming and media rig looks like a librarian of a notebook, albeit with a 17-inch widescreen display, but it boasts powerful Nvidia graphics along with a host of bells and whistles. With a price that hovers around $2,000, what's not to like? The exterior design is all business. The cover is a simple metallic gray, the interior a modest silver and black. Only a blue light emanating from the speakers gives any hint of the machine's ambitions.

A terrific screen, rich sound, and superior performance make the Satellite P105-S921 Gaming notebook from Toshiba really stand out. The system's $1999 price--quite reasonable considering what you get for it--only sweetens the deal. This full-featured gaming system offers a great screen and very good speakers, at a fair price.

There have been essentially two things missing from Toshiba's PC lineup: a desktop line and a gaming PC. Now, I can scratch off the gaming PC because I have, in my hands, the new Toshiba Satellite P105-S921. It's the first gaming notebook from Toshiba, and it blends affordability ($1,999.99 direct) with very good gaming performance. It comes with nVidia's GeForce Go 7900 GS graphics chip, a step below the nVidia 7900 GTX found on our Editors' Choice, the Dell XPS M1710.

Though Toshiba has recently dominated the field of desktop-replacement media machines with its Qosmio line, the company's entries in the realm of gaming systems (most recently, the Satellite P35) have been less than stellar. But the latest Toshiba laptop aimed at gaming enthusiasts, the Satellite P105-S921, is a serious contender; its gaming performance matches that of the Dell XPS M170, which, until today's release of the XPS M1710, had been our top-performing gaming machine. Better yet, the Satellite P105-S921 costs hundreds less than the competing Dell XPS M170 and thousands less than the top-of-the-line Dell XPS M1710. If you're a hard-core gamer who needs best-of-breed hardware for demanding games such as Oblivion or F.E.A.R. (and you have an extra two grand lying around), the XPS M1710 is the best gaming laptop on the market; for everyone else, the Satellite P105-S921 is a solid, affordable alternative.

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)

17.1":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
