Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722

>> Wednesday, January 14, 2009

The P105-S9722, Toshiba has stocked the laptop's case with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, more RAM, and a discrete Nvidia graphics card. When it comes to design, features, and software, this new P105 is identical to its predecessor for these details, refer back to CNET's review of the Satellite P105-S921. For the scoop on how the new components affect performance, read on.

Like its predecessor, the fixed configuration Satellite P105-S9722 also features a mix of higher end though not top of the line components for a reasonable $1,999.

The selection includes a 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of fast 666MHz memory, a downright massive 200GB SATA hard drive spinning at a sluggish 4,200rpm, and an Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GS graphics card with 256MB of VRAM.

As expected, the system performed admirably on CNET Labs' graphics intensive Photoshop CS test, scoring within 5 percent of a $3,500 Dell XPS M1710 that had a faster processor.

A superior version of the GeForce Go 7900 GPU, and twice as much VRAM. Even more importantly, the P105-S9722 displayed 87.8 frames per second when playing Quake 4 at 1,024x768 resolution within 12 percent of the XPS M1710's performance at nearly half the cost.

Obviously, if you're a hard core gamer who needs absolute top shelf equipment to play new, demanding games at their highest settings, the XPS M1710 still trumps Toshiba's offering. But otherwise, the Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 delivers very strong gaming performance at a far more palatable price than the Dell.
