Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite X205

Toshiba Satellite X205 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Toshiba Satellite X205 is a high-end multimedia notebook from Toshiba featuring the latest and greatest in mobile technology. It is based on the Intel Santa Rosa platform and has the Nvidia GeForce 8700M-GT DirectX 10 video card. There are two configurations of the X205 available at the time of writing this review – the X205-S9349 and the X205-S9359. We have the former and it retails for $1,999. The higher-end S9359 retails for $2,499 and ups the ante with a T7300 processor, Vista Ultimate 32-bit, a WSXGA+ resolution display, a 512MB dedicated video card, 320GB of hard drive space, and an external HDTV TV tuner. The Satellite X205 is suited for both home multimedia entertainment and gaming. At $1,999, I believe the S9349 is more than reasonably priced as it has the Nvidia 8700M-GT graphics card, 240GB of hard drive space, and more importantly an HD DVD-ROM drive. Other notebooks with similar specifications cannot compete with the X205 at this price point at the time of writing.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT: The NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT is a DirectX 10 capable video card with 32 Stream Precessors like the 8600M GT, but the core-, shader- and memory clock is higher. Therefore the performance is somewhat above the 8600M GT.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.


T7300: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.9 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
