Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P200-144
Source: PC Pro
Toshiba claims to have invented the notebook concept some 25 years ago, and it's a format the company has remained remarkably faithful to. It may never have branched out into the full-blown desktop market, but looking at the specs of this desktop replacement in isolation it might as well have done. With a 17in widescreen format, it's at the very limit of anything you'd attempt to leave the house with. Not only is battery life short (it managed just over two hours under light use), the sheer physical size and 3.2kg weight make it viable only for journeys involving a car. The advantage is that the P200-144 is pretty much as close to a desktop PC as a notebook can get, without resorting to detachable keyboards and design trickery such as that of the Dell XPS M2010 (web ID: 92150), or standard desktop componentry and a truly huge case such as the Rock Xtreme CTX Pro (web ID: 94154). With its 17in widescreen format, it's directly up against our current desktop-replacement favourite, HP's Pavilion dv9292eu.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 is a middle class video card of the 7000 series and suited for games of the year 2006. The performance is very similar to ATI X1600 / X1700. Compared to the desktop 7600 it is clearly slower.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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.
T7200: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
