Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite X200-21P

88% Review Toshiba Satellite X200-21P Gaming-Notebook | Notebookcheck
Satego copy. Beside the Satego X200 gaming series, Toshiba also offers the Satellite X200 series, which does not differ to much from the former at the first glance. There is first-class hardware in a striking case, so, also the Satellite X200 is indeed a gaming notebook. Powerful Intel Core 2 Duo processors and a powerful video cards, like Geforce 8700m GT or 8600m GT SLI, which the reviewed notebook came with, grant excellent gaming performance.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT SLI: Two DirectX 10 medium class GeForce 8600M GT graphic cards combined by SLI. Due to SLI they are 0-60% faster than one single card depending on the game. The performance is sufficient for current games but not sufficient for DirectX 10 detail levels.  The graphic chip H.264 offers hardware acceleration for videos.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.


T7700: Fastest Merom based Core 2 Duo with 35 Watt. The later Penryn Core 2 Duo are a bit faster at the same clock speed.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.0": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

4.07 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.
