Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Pro S300

78% Toshiba Satellite Pro S300

The competition is stiff among affordable mainstream laptops aimed at small-business users, with entries like the Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 and more recent HP ProBook 4510s delivering a decent mix of styling, features, and performance for under $800. This refreshed Satellite Pro gets a faster processor, more RAM, and a larger hard drive for a lower price, but the chunky platform needs to be put on a diet.

70% Toshiba Satellite Pro S300-11G review

Affordable 3G, but lacking the go-anywhere nature of the other laptops and netbooks. With mobility the key selling point of 3G broadband, laptops featuring it are inevitably highly portable – and also highly expensive. The Toshiba Satellite Pro S300-11G breaks this tradition by being large and affordable. The sheer bulk of this laptop will be enough to put off some users, but for those who don't mind the heavier weight and larger dimensions, it's a well made machine that offers good value for money.

Toshiba - Satellite Pro S300 review
Source: IT Reviews English
At just over £500, it's no great surprise that the Satellite Pro S300 isn't up to much in terms of performance. However, we like the uncomplicated design and, although it's no good for gaming, this laptop will cope fine with everyday office applications. It would have been nice if Toshiba had backed the package up with more than the standard one-year warranty, but on the whole this is a decent desktop replacement for those on a tight budget.

The Toshiba Satellite Pro S300-120 seems expensive given that cheaper rivals, such as the HP Compaq Presario CQ70-116, have similar specs and a larger screen. But, with its sturdy design and excellent keyboard, the S300-120 is a competent desktop replacement for those with undemanding needs.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.

T3200: Entry-level dual core processor with a slow performance due to the old Merom core and a small level 2 cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

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