Annual power consumption cost

The Toshiba's power consumption is among the best in its class of $1,000 all-in-ones, which we attribute to the impressive efficiency of Intel's second-generation Core i5 CPUs. Next to the slower, more power-greedy AMD-based Dell Inspiron One, the Toshiba is a paragon of environmental friendliness.

Standard warranty coverage for the Toshiba DX1210 includes one year of parts and labor. You also get 24-7 toll-free phone support, as well as a variety of diagnostic software and services on Toshiba's Web site and on the system itself.

Conclusion
Although Toshiba's been out of the desktop game for about a decade, the DX1210-ST4N22 demonstrates that it still knows how to build a quality desktop system. We might prefer the DX1210-ST4N22 with a few tweaks, but overall Toshiba has achieved an appealing balance between performance and functionality with this system, and for a reasonable price.
