The Toshiba Satellite Pro A210, the first model in the company's recently reintroduced line of budget business laptops, bears a striking resemblance to the consumer-oriented Satellite A215. The inexpensive Toshiba Satellite Pro A210 laptop offers enough features and performance oomph for basic business tasks, but its AMD processor may disappoint hard-core multitaskers.

Bargain priced laptop has sweet built-in speakers, but it's too slow for demanding users. Considering that much better notebooks cost a mere $200 more, it's hard to recommend the A210-Ez2201 with much enthusiasm. On the other hand, I've never heard a better-sounding notebook at this price. Music lovers, at least, could score a real deal here.

Toshiba Satellite Pro A210 Review
Source: English
Compared to the Toshiba Tecra line that has some problems with high heat output and odd build quality problems, the Satellite Pro A210 is a step in the right direction. Build quality is very good, with only minor flex in certain spots. Case heat output is minimal and very lap friendly and it has an incredibly quiet cooling fan. My only real complaint is the lack of graphics cards options, that you can find in the small business models from other manufacturers.

ATI Radeon Xpress X1200: This is an onboard video chip and according AMD optimized for a good price/value. It is based on a X700 design but with less pixel- and vertex-pipelines. ATI Radeon Xpress X1200 is hardly apt for gamers. The graphic chip supports Windows Vista Aero surface and all 3D effects run fluently. Sometimes also called Radeon X1200.

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

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


In 65nm (31W TDP) produced dual core processor with a clock rate of 1.9 GHz. The TL-58 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.

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.
