Toshiba Satellite E205-S1904 bundle

The Good Slim design; easy-to-use Intel Wireless Display built-in; speedy Core i5 processor.

The Bad Unimpressive speakers; no dedicated gaming graphics; unimpressive battery life.

The Bottom Line As one of the first laptops to feature Intel's Wireless Display technology, the Toshiba Satellite E205-S1904 is a slim, fast, and affordable package for mainstream users.

Review

Toshiba Satellite E205-S1904 bundle

Editors' note: This review is part of our , which covers specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

At this year's CES, one of the technologies that captured our interest was Intel's Wireless Display technology, or WiDi. Presented as a simple plug-and-play way of transmitting a laptop's video signal to any TV with the help of a small Netgear-made box, WiDi presents a tempting solution to the often messy methods currently available to those who want to get their Hulu on the big screen. (For more on Intel's Wireless Display, check out our hands-on report and video.)

WiDi, however, needs to be built into a compatible laptop. One of the first notebook computers to include WiDi at retail is the $899 Toshiba Satellite E205-S1904, a model that's exclusive to Best Buy. Though having WiDi included makes the E205-S1904 intriguing enough, we're also excited because the last Best Buy exclusive design that Toshiba made, the E105-S1802, was one of our favorite Satellite laptops. We particularly liked it for incorporating a more comfortable keyboard and touch pad than are available in most mainstream Satellite models.
