Compared with last year's Satellite A665s model that we reviewed, the 2011 version benefits from its new Intel CPUs in terms of battery life. The A665-S5176X lasted 4 hours and 5 minutes in our video playback battery-drain test using the included six-cell battery. That's a solid number for nonstop video playback, but considering that the Portege R835 and MacBook Pros topped 7 hours with smaller profiles, it's just not good enough. You can and should be expecting better battery life out of this year's laptops.

Toshiba includes an industry-standard one-year parts and labor warranty with the system. Support is accessible through a 24-7 toll-free phone line, and a customized support search page can direct you to online documents and driver downloads for this specific model.
