Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite X205-SLi5
Source: Comp Reviews
Toshiba Satellite X205 Satellite broke a lot of ground when it was first introduced, but it has failed to really keep up with the times. It has undergone a number of revisions, but the X205-SLi5 just doesn't match up well enough with similarly priced systems. While the dual GeForce 8600M make gaming smooth, there are better options available now for less.
