60% Toshiba Satellite Pro A200-EZ2204X
Source: Laptop Mag English
A no-frills business notebook that delivers what you expect for less than $1,000. Toshiba’s Satellite Pro A200-EZ2204X is a basic business notebook that offers a decent amount of horsepower at an affordable price ($999). Users will appreciate the fact that Toshiba stripped out much (but not all) of the typical bloatware installed on many of today’s systems, but we were disappointed by the lack of security features and would have liked more battery life. The Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 won’t break any speed records, and its battery life means you’ll have to stay within reach of a power plug. However, if you’re in need of a basic business notebook and want to stay under the $1,000 mark, this system is worth a look.

The Toshiba A200 notebook offers an impressive array of features, notably an HD DVD drive for watching high-definition (HD) movies. In addition to watching films on the 15.4in screen it also includes a socket for connection to a high-definition television. Despite the A200’s average screen performance it’s a decent all-rounder and is well suited to digital music and video fans.

Toshiba reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600: This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS graphic card for laptops and performs in games much better than the Nvidia card.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

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


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.

T7500:

The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.


15.4: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.7 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.7 kg:


74.75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
