Satellite A70/75 series

The Satellite A70/75 series offers the lowest price of Toshiba's 2004 back-to-school laptops, but by no means does this mainstream laptop look cheap. In fact, this solid system includes some bells and whistles, such as a wide 15.4-inch display and dedicated CD-control buttons, typically found on more expensive laptops. We tested the Toshiba Satellite A75-S206, whose mobile Pentium 4 processor rocked CNET Labs' benchmarks. Unfortunately, our Labs' battery-drain tests revealed less exciting news: the Satellite A75-S206's battery cut out more than 2 hours sooner than the mainstream Dell Inspiron 1150's. If you value very long battery life at minimal cost, Dell's Inspiron 1150 is a great catch. If speed and screen space are your top priorities, go with the Satellite A75-S206 instead. (Note: The Toshiba Satellite A70 and A75 are basically the same system; you can customize the A70, while A75 models come preconfigured.)
