Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Pro A100
Source: Trusted Reviews
It's been a long while since we've seen a Toshiba notebook in the TR labs, so we thought we'd correct this by getting in one of its latest range of Satellite Pro notebooks. Toshiba is still very much one of the larger players in notebooks and anyone that's looking for a portable computer at a reasonable price is likely to have a Toshiba on their shortlist. Two things struck me straight away when examining the A100 for the first time. Its size and finish clearly mark it out as a mid-priced notebook, but also that it had some interesting touches that mark it out from the generic-chassised notebook horde.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1400: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 is part of the lower middle class. The performance can be compared with an elder X600, but technically it is a X1300, which is scarcely 100 Mhz higher clocked.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)
