Toshiba Satellite Pro L40-12S review: Toshiba Satellite Pro L40-12S

The Good Above-par performance for price; attractive design.

The Bad Not up to gaming; poor battery life.

The Bottom Line The Toshiba Satellite Pro L40-12S performs much better than its £300 price tag would imply. It's not up to gaming and battery life could be better, but for such a low price what do you expect?

If your budget is limited, or you're just looking for a second PC for light use, the Toshiba Satellite Pro L40-12S could be just the ticket.

It may lack the top-end features of other laptops, but with a price tag of around £370 online -- and just £299.97 from -- it's a steal.

If you haven't got the best part of a grand to slap down on a portable computer, you don't have to miss out on decent features, as the L40 boldly shows. While the performance score of 1,697 from its 1.86MHz Intel Celeron M440 processor and 512MB RAM may seem low, it's really not bad considering how much it sells for. In this price range, anything that can achieve four figures is doing well.

Luxuries such as built-in HSDPA may be out of reach in this price category, but you still benefit from useful extras such as built-in Wi-Fi and an internal DVD writer. The keyboard is a little springy to type on, but it's a decent size, as is the touchpad situated beneath it.
