The 16-inch Toshiba Satellite A665 with Windows 7 Home Premium is a fairly new desktop replacement laptop by Toshiba–and right now it’s being sold for $685 for a total of $155 off the list price on Amazon.
In our benchmark tests, our model did significantly better than the Dell Inspiron 15R and the Sony VAIO EA in terms of overall system performance. Keep reading to find out if this is the notebook for you.
The Satellite A665 comes built with an Intel Core i5-460M processor at 2.53 GHz with Turbo Boost technology, 4GB of RAM and 500GB of hard drive space. This multimedia notebook will be able to multitask and perform quite decently based on our tests.
For $45 more, you may choose the A665 model with NVIDIA GeForce 310M graphics (512MB GDDR3 of dedicated memory). We tested it in our labs and found it did much better than the graphics card in the Sony VAIO EA and the Dell Inspiron 15R.
The 16-inch 720p (1366×768) display with LED backlighting got a “very good” on our review. We also mentioned that the contrast on the screen is sharp and clear.
We also had some good things to say about the built-in speakers that are located above the keyboard. We said that the audio is “surprisingly rich” and that the notebook is able to provide an “excellent” range of high, mid, and low tones.
The 6-cell 48Wh battery was tested by us and delivered four hours and twelve minutes of mobile power.
