Geekzone reviewed Toshiba Satellite A100 laptop and concluded that the Satellite A100 performs well and it’s nice and quiet. Even under the stress of gaming, the CPU cooling was still quiet. Beside, the multimedia remote is an item that would make using this as a means of watching DVDs convenient. The hard drive is fast enough, there’s just enough memory and there are of course two processors thanks to the Core Duo. The only draw back in being a permanently setup desktop replacement (monitor with stand etc) is the lack of DVI output and some minor annoyances in having to access the power button.
If you’re looking for a mobile desktop replacement system that will perform well with all aspects of things, then you won’t be disappointed with the Satellite A100.
It’s clear from using it that the new mobile chipset from Intel has some serious improvements in performance, coupled with the Core Duo and the integrated nVidia 7300GO these system herald a new level of performance from the notebook in general.
