Good performance, but..

I have a A100 series, with a C2D 2.0Ghz, 2GB ram, geforce 7600 go. For games, Vista, and anything that needs a lot of horsepower it is great.

One annoyance, is I get under 2 hours of battery. I know the 7600 is the culprit, and I did expect shorter life when choosing a model with a big video card. I am surprised as how much battery life dropped. An identical model from Toshiba except with a Intel GMA950, gets well over 3 hours.

All the more reason i wish external pci-e becomes a standard soon
U can have the best of both worlds.

But till then these laptops are killer.I'll get one of these once a directx 10 gpu which performs decently is released.

Same here - I am waiting for Direct X10 to come out on laptops before I buy.

I have been eyeing several Dells (I get a hefty discount on them from my work) but just cannot bite the bullet until DX10 and maybe reduced core size C2Ds are out.

External PCI-Express x16 is what I'm waiting for. Wish someone would do an article about how long it'll take for it to be implemented.

This model has a 160GB 5400rpm hard drive, as opposed to dailytech's 7200rpm. I didn't think they made 2.5" drives with 160GB at that spin at 7200rpm. And appearently I was right, Toshiba's website lists the drive as 5400rpm.

It would appear that the specs listed in Toshiba's press release differ from the specs listed in it's online store:

If there were a 7200 RPM 160GB notebook drive, that would be big news. But it has never been reported at DT?


they should.....
By Souka on 3/1/2007 11:38:31 PM , Rating: 2
all these laptops should come by default with 2GB of ram...

1GB on a "gaming laptop" runing Vista Ultimate? Crazy....crazy dumb that is....

Even better is to toss in two 2GB modules for 4GB total ram...the "sweet spot" of Vista. I believe CORSAIR makes some 2GB PC2 5300 DDR2 modules....

2x2GB is extremely expensive. What I'd like to see is a laptop with 4x1GB. Toshiba is a big enough customer that it could get a custom design like that.

In any case, they should come with 2x1GB standard, and Toshiba shouldn't try to charge $500 for a second 1GB module that you can install yourself. Of course that won't happen, because they make a lot of money doing that (most people don't want to install their own RAM, so Toshiba gets to charge them big bucks without losing us as customers)


GPU

Might be worth noting that all of the models come with the GeForce Go 7900GTX.

More options to look forward to in 6-9 months when prices become more reasonable. :)

looking for a good machine myself, i want something with a bit of grunt, DVI out, but then is simple to just pack away by folding the lid and taking it home with me.

this fits the bill nicely, though with Santa Rosa just around the corner, and hopefuly scaled down G80 mobile GPU's im not sure its worth buying these unless you absolutely cannot wait.
