The deal: Toshiba A500/031 - well priced entertainment notebook - $1,469.00
The Toshiba Satellite A500/031 ticks every box for an entertainment machine, and at $1,469 it ticks the box for good value as well. A 16in (1366x768) screen is the headline act here as it provides a good viewing quality to go with the other two main acts, a Blu-Ray reader and a TV tuner. A Blu-Ray reader is needed to watch Blu-Ray movies, while the combination of a TV tuner and an HDMI port ensures you’ll be watching or even recording TV directly on your notebook.
An Intel Core i5-520M (2.4GHz) is a very fast processor that can easily play HD movies and edit videos. This notebook also has an NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics card and 4GB of RAM, so games like Modern Warfare 2 are playable on high settings.
With a 640GB hard drive you’re unlikely to run out of space for a while. The A500/031 is touch on the heavy side with its 2.92kg weight, it’s also 384mm wide, 259mm deep, and 42.9mm thick, so portability definitely suffers here.
This notebook has real entertainment credentials due to the large screen, Blu-Ray reader, and TV tuner. The potent overall specs ensure you’ll get lots of joy here, and for $1,469 it’ll be money well spent.
