Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Pro S500-11C

60% Toshiba Satellite Pro S500-11C review
Source: Channel Web English
Toshiba's Satellite Pro S500-11C looks pretty impressive at first sight. It's reasonably slim (measuring 33mm at the thinnest point and 38mm at the thickest) and has an all-black chassis that's interrupted only by the large silver Toshiba logo on the lid. The Satellite Pro S500-11C benefits from good performance but, considering the price, we were expecting much better in terms of battery life.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
