Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287
Source: PC Perspective
The Dell costs double the price of the Satellite and the performance was acceptable for the consumer that Toshiba is marketing it towards. If you look hard enough, you can a find a model similar to the one we have tested here for around $1100 -- not the cheapest system on the block but definitely lower than average. I was actually surprised how well the Toshiba performed when compared head-to-head to a performance notebook considering that huge price difference. This notebook is perfect for the casual or business computer user.
The entire time I was working on this review I was thinking about what its intended use is. My conclusions are that this is a desktop replacement for the average user that just wants to surf the web, maybe watch a DVD and perform basic office functions like word processing and spreadsheets. No gaming allowed other than solitaire or mahjong. I would buy this computer for my wife but I need a little more.

Designed for those looking for a big 17-inch screen at a reasonable price, the P205-S6287 features a spacious hard drive, ample RAM, and all the multimedia amenities we've come to expect from the Satellite series. If you're looking for a Vista notebook that will satisfy most of your productivity and entertainment needs, this is a solid choice. Just don't expect a barn burner.

The good: The Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 laptop has a decent performance for the price; attractive design; movie-friendly display; comfortable keyboard and well-designed touch pad; lightweight for a desktop replacement. The bad: Lousy battery life; large company logo on lid is off-putting; lacks Bluetooth option. The bottom line: The 17-inch Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 desktop replacement laptop backs up its good looks with a competitive mix of components for the price. We just wish its battery life were longer.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
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.
