Toshiba Satellite P205
Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P205
The Toshiba Satellite P205 does what it sets out to do, handling multimedia content very nicely, thanks to the excellent screen, Vista Home Premium and 2GB RAM. Many popular current games would be hampered by the GMA 950 graphics, but for everything else this P205 performed well. The media notebook segment of the market, which seems to be enjoying immense popularity at the moment, is highly competitive, but at the right price, the P205 merits consideration. The P205 will be coming soon equipped with the new Intel Santa Rosa platform, if you're looking for improved performance (at a price) then you can look out for that.

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.
