Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite T235D-S1350
After going through all the benchmarks, features, etc. we come to the final tally, and for once we have an AMD laptop that we can recommend without hesitation. You're not going to have a great gaming experience on the T235D, but for everything else it works well and the price is right. It's easy to find laptops that are significantly faster, but such laptops cost more and generally fall short in the mobility areas of battery life and size.

Simply put, the Toshiba Satellite T235-S1350 is the best value-priced ultraportable on the market today, mixing great looks with an industry leading keyboard, strong battery life, and solid performance. The AMD-powered Satellite T235D-S1345 offers somewhat better graphics performance and is $20 to $30 cheaper, but its lesser battery life, weaker wireless scores, and slower storage speeds aren't worth the miniscule savings. When it comes to ultraportable 13-inch notebooks, you won't find a more attractive system anywhere near this price range.

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.
U5400: Entry level dual core CPU of the Arrandale series. Does not support Turbo Boost (for the CPU), Hyperthreading, Virtualization and AES. Due to the slow clock speed, the performance is only sufficient for non demanding applications.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
