Toshiba Satellite T115D
Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite T115D
Source: Student Buying Guide
The Toshiba Satellite T115D is a very worthy budget thin-and-light laptop, it’s a good option for students or people constantly on the go. Depending on your needs, you may want a more powerful PC at home since this laptop is not cut out for gaming or lots of multi-tasking. However, for getting work done during the day in a mobile manner the 11.6” screen Satellite T115D stands out. I do wish the battery life were better than the 4 – 5 hours I got and there were some issues with heat build-up. While the T115D design is better than the Acer Aspire 1410, overall I still lean towards the Aspire 1410 for its outstanding battery life and better performance. However, if you like the Toshiba brand and the looks of this laptop then the T115D is a buy!

ATI Radeon HD 3200: Onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip (on RS780M chipset) based on the HD 2400 graphics core. It also features the UVD video engine to decode HD videos. Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D accelleration because of a driver problem.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
