Conclusion: In closing, Toshiba's A660-17T is a well-rounded, well-built 16in notebook that's let down by lacklustre battery life. Comfortable in use, the system features an excellent keyboard and numpad, a large responsive trackpad, good on-screen image quality and impressive audio, too. Performance is more than adequate for everyday use, and features such as Intel WiDi represent good value at the £650 price point.
Toshiba Satellite A660D-ST2G01: AMD's Quad-Core Phenom II P920 Joins the Mobile Party

Conclusion: Toshiba A660D-ST2G01: AMD's Danube is Better, Now Fix the Design AMD notebooks have really been difficult to recommend on any metric other than pricing for the past few years. Thankfully, the new Danube platform looks like it addresses the performance and battery life shortcomings. Intel laptops are still faster and offer better battery life, but AMD has areas where they can compete…if the price is right.
Excerpt: At first glance, the Toshiba Satellite A660-15T looks like a one of Toshiba's typical business laptops . It's not shiny, pretty or finished with silver trim – it's matt black on matt black with a bit of subtle texturing, which we suspect is there more for grip than appearance.
Excerpt: Toshiba has a rich heritage of high performance machines, and any self-respecting gamer will have used a machine from their Qosmio range at some stage. But with the A660-15T Toshiba has implemented the same high-end components in their more consumer Satellite range – the result is a powerful, and affordable notebook.
Toshiba Satellite A660/07R (PSAW3A-07R00R) review: A 3D gaming notebook for early adopters
Good Gear Guide.au
11 October 2010
Summary: The Toshiba Satellite A660/07R (PSAW3A-07R00R) is a good notebook if you're looking for something that can deliver strong performance, and it's also something early adopters might want to check out because of its 3D gaming capabilities. But overall, it has too many annoyances that make it a disappointing release: the use of a 32-bit version of Windows 7, the poor battery life, the installed bloatware, and the overly glossy screen to name a few.
Pros: Good configuration, huge hard drive capacity, above-average graphics performance, Blu-ray writer
Cons: Poor battery life, 32-bit Windows 7 is installed by default, too much preinstalled software makes for annoying user experience, keyboard keys too smooth, screen too glossy
Conclusion: Für Multimedia- und Allround-Aufgaben ist das Toshiba Satellite A660-1EG wirklich sehr gut geeignet, immerhin reicht die vorhandene Hardware definitiv aus, um Filme zu schauen, Musik zu hören, Texte zu verfassen oder sogar diverse Spiele zu spielen. Alles in allem liefert das Toshiba Satellite A660-1EG eine gute Vorstellung ab und zeigt damit deutlich, dass Allround-Notebooks in den meisten Fällen eine sehr gute Wahl sind.
Pros: großes Display, HD-ready Auflösung, solide Anwendungsleistung, Windows 7 vorinstalliert, kühl und leise, sehr guter Sound, gute Eingabegeräte
