Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Pro L350
Source: Laptop Logic
At a little over a $1000 purchase price, the Toshiba L350 Satellite Pro may be the laptop for you if you need a 17 laptop.If it's budget your aiming for, theM305 we just reviewed trumps this model in almost each and every way except for display (yes, including price). Compared with other laptops aimed at the same demographic like the Fujitsu Lifebook E8410- this islarger and bulkier than the Lifebook, but at a much reduced cost. The L350 costs just over $1000 depending on the retailer, whereas the Lifebook is going to hit you up for $1600. I was left less than impressed for a 17" notebook, but to be fair the Toshiba L350 Satellite Pro is a fine enough laptop for the cubicle bound business person. But for the commuter, student, artist, movie watcher or laptop enthusiast, there are plenty of better laptops out there that will be easier on the back if not on the wallet.

Promoted by Toshiba as a desktop alternative for the business class, the L350 is indeed decently powerful. But that power comes in a large and clunky package, without much incentive to be used as a mobile PC. Like using a filing cabinet as a paper weight, this laptop can certainly get the job done, but it takes up much more room than necessary.

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.
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.
T5670: Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom-2M core without virtualization functions.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
