Summary: While the $799 Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X is an affordably priced Blu-ray laptop with a next-gen Intel Core i3 processor, there are other options out there that offer better design or performance for the same money.
Pros: A Blu-ray drive and excellent speakers make the Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X worth considering for those looking for a reasonably priced 15-inch multimedia laptop.
Cons: Uninspiring design, a middle-of-the-pack battery, and a bulky feel keep it from being a standout.
Summary: Upgraded graphics are a highlight of the Toshiba Satellite A665-S6058, a mainstream 16-inch laptop that can pull double duty as a mobile gaming system thanks to its Nvidia Optimus graphics and outstanding audio.
Pros: Harman Kardon speakers deliver outstanding audio output; Core i5 CPU turns in competitive performance; solid construction; great keyboard.
Cons: Poor battery life; no Blu-ray drive; flimsy mouse buttons.
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.
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.
Conclusion: Il Toshiba Satellite A665 è un notebook particolare in quanto il primo di questo produttore a disporre di un display 3D e ad assicurare, quindi, una perfetta esperienza tridimensionale. A parte il display 3D, sono da evidenziare l’ampio hard disk, la tecnologia NVIDIA 3D Vision, gli occhialini attivi inclusi nella confezione, il masterizzatore e il lettore di schede di memoria. Peccato per l’autonomia, abbastanza scarsa.
Pros: Occhialini attivi nella confezione; Kit NVIDIA 3D Vision incluso; Processore; Interfaccia HDMI; Supporto 3D; Lettore schede di memoria; Hard disk
