Toshiba Satellite Laptops – Which One?
The first decision you have to make is whether or not you will buy a satellite laptop or a traditional one. Once you have decided to purchase a satellite laptop, then you have to decide which one.
You can purchase Toshiba satellite laptops for as little as 0 and as much as ,500. There are several models to choose from including the A100 Series, A105 Series, L20 Series, M45, M50, M55, M60, and M65 Series, and R10 and R15 Series. Each of them is unique in their own respect. Once you clearly document what you will use your new computer for, then, and only then should you begin shopping through the different models.
Most home users can get by with the M50, the beginning price Toshiba. It starts at 9.20 and goes up from there if you decide to further customize. However it does not come with Microsoft Office software. It’s inexpensive partly because it comes with an Intel Celeron M Processor 370 and 40 GB of HD. The rest of the M series is more costly. The M45 starts at 9.00, but only has the battery life of an hour. The M55 starts at ,149.99 and is getting vastly better reviews if you look around, the M60 starts at 34.10, and the M65 starts at ,299.99.
The A100 series uses an Intel Pentium M780, wireless LAN, and Bluetooth capabilities, although it doesn’t come with Microsoft Office either. The A105 series is known for its light weight.
The L20 series is marketed as its value buy. It features Intel Cetrino Mobile Technology; an Intel Pentium M Processor 730 has 40GB and 256MB RAM.
The R series is a bit higher end. The R10 Tablet PC is known for its hinge design allowing the screen to swivel and lock into ‘tablet’ position easily. The R15 combines advanced notebook power with the comfort of simple pen and paper. In a few seconds, you can use a pen with very precise digital ink to write down anything you want. Very cool stuff.
Some swear by these laptops, while others haven’t noticed any big difference between a satellite laptop and a regular one. My experience has been very good, I have and R series and it’s unique design is perfect for me. I also like the digital ink pen, very cool. Even though you haven’t heard much about these laptops, the buzz is picking up.
