Toshiba Satellite P70-A-104

Toshiba have crafted the perfect machine for entertainment. The Toshiba Satellite P70-A-104 is a 17 inch behemoth, with a brilliant 1920 x 1080 glossy LCD display. The display can be a little bit darker than one might like, but overall it is gorgeous and this flaw is easy to overlook. It is perfect for a desktop replacement/home entertainment center. 3 kg weight and a short battery life make it less than ideal for portable use. It is a stretch to get over 3 hours of moderate use on one charge, but that is to be expected with a machine this powerful. With the 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7-4700MQ 4th generation Haswell processor and discrete nVidia GeForce GT 745M graphics, it is powerful enough to play the highest resolution video you can find, and run the most demanding games at above medium settings. Equipped with Harmon Kardon quad-speakers, bass a little weak, but the audio quality is extremely decent and the volume is surprising.

The Toshiba Satellite P70-A-104 runs Windows 8, which is one of the best options out there for an entertainment-centric machine. For Blu-ray enthusiasts, the Blu-ray drive will be a delight. Four USB 3.0 ports provide faster data transfer. The build quality is perhaps one of the biggest letdowns. The nondescript brushed aluminum body will flex and creak at points, and the seals along the side of the machine are less than attractive. To sum it all up, this is a great media machine with plenty of power at a decent price.

Premium Haswell. Full HD screen, Core i7 Haswell, GeForce GPU, Harman/Kardon sound system - appetizing. Can the Premium DTR deliver what it promises? Find out in the following review.
80% Toshiba Satellite P70 review
Source: Techradar English
The Toshiba doesn't win any prizes for style or longevity: its design is a mix between classy aluminium and cheap-looking plastic, and battery life results were poor. Instead, this machine has a potent processor, a versatile specification and a high-quality screen and speakers. It's not cheap, but it's worth the investment if you prize power and practicality over the charms of lightweight, low-power Ultrabooks.

80% Toshiba Satellite P70-A-109 review - high-end laptop has great media-player credentials
Source: PC Advisor English
The Satellite P70 doesn't win awards for its build quality, visual design or longevity, but it excels in several other categories: the screen is excellent, the speakers are acceptable for a media machine, and there's plenty of power inside – so this system has the quality to handle media, gaming and work. It's worth considering if Ultrabooks and other 15.6in laptops just aren't powerful or versatile enough.

Toshiba reviews


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.


17.3: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.

3 kg:


80.25%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
