Summary: For an attractive $799, the Toshiba Satellite A665 delivers great sound, a Blu-ray drive, and fairly long battery life. We just wish it offered better Wi-Fi performance. In this price range, the Samsung SF510 is the more stylish option, but it has a weaker processor and lacks Blu-ray. The Dell XPS 15 has even better audio than the A665 and gives you a more powerful Core i5 processor and Nvidia graphics for the same price, and you can add a Blu-ray for just $100 more.
Pros: Excellent speakers, Good battery life for a mainstream laptop, Runs cool, Charges devices and plays audio in sleep mode
Cons: Keys a bit slippery, Weak Wi-Fi performance, Graphics not good enough for gamers
Summary: The Toshiba Satellite A665-S6058 is a solid performer for its $899 asking price. Its internal components such as the Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and Nvidia GPU with Optimus make it a strong performer, and its speakers deliver excellent audio. While the keyboard and touchpad buttons don't feel as good as they look, and the battery life isn't that high, the A665 is a multitimedia machine worth owning.
Pros: Fast Core i5 processor, Good gaming frame rates for price, Top-of-the-line speakers, Can charge gadgets and play music in sleep mode
Cons: Noisy keyboard and touchpad buttons, Relatively short battery life, Overly glossy screen
Conclusion: The Toshiba Satellite A665 is a nice machine no doubt - even if you discount the 3D as a gimmick, you can't fault the raw performance you can get from the machine. As a desktop replacement, it will seriously give a lot of Âdesktop PCs a run for their money and you also get the added advantage of 3D. Of course, expect to pay a premium for it - at RM6,999 it certainly isn't cheap.
Pros: 3D; great peformance for a laptop.
Cons: Relatively short battery life; 3D glasses uncomfortable for spectacle wearers.
Conclusion: La Toshiba Satellite A665 es una computadora asequible y propia para el uso casero. Sin embargo, no es la laptop con procesador Intel Core i7 más económica. Su pantalla de 15.6 pulgadas es demasiado grande para los viajes cotidianos, y su batería de 12 celdas añade un peso extra.
Pros: El procesador Intel Core i7 tiene buen desempeño. Cuenta con una constucción sólida y gran teclado. Cuenta con bocinas Harman Kardon.
Cons: La autonomía de la batería y además es un poco pesada.
