Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237: Bargain Laptop Colossus

Looking for a 17-inch laptop that’s under a grand? The Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237 fills the bill. It joins the Aver Aspire 9300-5005 as one of the few sub-$1,000 17-inch systems we've tested. At 7.3 pounds, though, the Toshiba is not only lighter than the Acer but also performs better.

One reason is the processor. Whereas Acer went with a slower dual-core AMD processor, Toshiba used a 1.73-GHz Intel Core 2 Due T2080, which gave the S6237 a significant performance edge. It ran through Photoshop scripts there times as fast as the Acer, though still at a so-so 2 minutes 4 seconds. And despite its integrated graphics (versus the Acer's discrete graphics), the S6237 posted 3D gaming test scores that fell only a bit short of the Acer's.

The S6237 has four USB ports and a FireWire port; VGA-out, S-Video, and a 4-in-l card reader. Its dual-layer DVD burner supports LabelFlash disc labeling, which is similar to HP's LightScribe.

The S6237's in middling components-especially the RAM-could use some upgrading. But at this bargain price, the S6237 is a very respectable system.
