Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237
Source: PC Mag
There was a time when 17-inch LCD screens cost a fortune to buy—and this was just a standalone screen. A year ago, you were guaranteed to spend at least $2,000 on a 17-inch laptop. Now, you can get one for half that. The Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237 ($999 direct) is tailored to penny-pinchers whose main concern is screen space. It bundles a gorgeous 17-inch screen that will make you forget about that old desktop, but you'll have to contend with middle-of-the-road components. Naturally, you'll have to deal with some bulk any time you integrate a 17-inch widescreen. The P205's 7.3-pound frame is tolerable as long as the laptop stays in one place most of the time. The Acer Aspire 9300-5005—the only other 17-inch laptop that's priced under $1,000—is half a pound heavier.

The good: Attractive design; movie-friendly display; comfortable keyboard and well-designed touch pad; lightweight for a desktop replacement. The bad: Economy processor results in mediocre performance and below-average battery life; large company logo on lid is off-putting; lacks Bluetooth option. The bottom line: The 17-inch Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237 laptop looks good but is hobbled by its budget processor. You can get more for your money elsewhere.
