This is a desktop replacement style machine. Right hand side view of the Toshiba Satellite A70 J00W view larger image From the left to right on the right hand side of the A70 there is present: Toshiba Australia and New Zealand NZ offers two other configurations for the Satellite A70 besides the one that I have, intile configurations differ only in the terms of the Processor, which are the P4 3.
When I was researching what notebook to buy, I looked at several models and read extensively in the forums at notebookreview. I wanted a system that was capable of meeting my needs as a fulltime working professional and satellit student. I also simply needed a separate machine for myself without the need to share with the rest of the family.

I also wanted a notebook computer that would have enough capacity for intltle large MP3 music collection a few thousand files in numberthe ability to play DVDs, store photographs etc. Where and How purchased. Settling on Noel Leeming www.
The DV is a beautiful machine, really mobile and light and very nice to work on.
Until I showed it to some workmates in IT who immediately wrote off the machine saying it was too wimpy with a 1. One of them made the allusion to HP machines being similar to a Hyundai car and the Toshiba like a European car! The machine comes with a standard 1-year warranty. Not a bad deal I thought when I compared the price to what other stores in New Zealand such as Harvey Norman were offering.
This seems to be a very well made computer. After several weeks of use, I have had no problems.

The casing is made of a combination of plastic and metal. It has two sturdy hinges holding the display to the main body. Two fans mounted on the bottom of the machine and air vents at the rear provide adequate cooling with no signs of overheating.
The Satellite A70 weighs in at 7. You must remember that this is a desktop replacement system and therefore is not designed to be lightweight. Also, the size of the power adapter is quite large — not unlike a small brick! The power adapter can become quite hot whilst charging too.
A few weird annoyances I have found — The volume control dial is, ironically, hard to control — your fingers seem to slip at the end of its travel both ways and you sometimes do not realise that the dial has reached its maximum travel.
The placement of the headphones jack can interfere with anything connected to the right hand side USB port such as a mouse. Also weird is the slide control used to switch on and off the Wireless LAN connection. When you first turn on the machine for boot up the fan starts blowing very loudly for about 5 seconds, but it stops after this initial period of exhausting air. The screen is very nice, bright, crisp, and clear. I was fortunate enough to have no dead pixels on my screen.
Via function keys the brightness can be set at one of 8 levels. The widescreen is a nice look. The maximum resolution for the LCD is xbut resolutions up to x are supported for external monitors.
The keyboard is full size and feels smooth and returns a satisfying click when used. The Control key is positioned in the proper place, below the left shift key. The touchpad features a scrolling ability like a wheel mouse both vertically and horizontally. Sliding your finger along the right or bottom extremity of the pad activates this. An annoyance with the touchpad is that, unlike the HP machine, the right and bottom extremities are not highlighted with a scroll line that straightaway tells a user about the sliding feature.
There are plenty of areas where Toshiba could have made the finish or user friendliness detailing. In fact, when compared to the HP machine I bought earlier, the user friendliness of buttons and forcing functions such as arrows on the touchpad to indicate the scroll area is abysmal.
For a machine this expensive I would have liked to have seen the keyboard with backlighting or overhead light such as you get on the IBM ThinkPad. There are several buttons located to the left of the keyboard. Topmost is the power button. Immediately below that are two indicator lights, the left being for hard drive access. The right light is associated with the configurable button located directly below it. By default, the configurable button launches Windows Media player, but this can be changed to any program you want.

However, they do produce a reasonable sound and are clear without distortion right up to the highest volume setting, which is reasonably loud. It cannot accept Compact Flash cards. This is an important note as this is one of the popular formats for digital camera cards.
If you own a digital camera and want to use it with this system, make sure you have one of these formats. Memory card reader slot on the A70 The logos for each of the supported formats are also embedded into the plastic, in case you forget what cards your system supports.
There is also a moulded rubber cover that pops into the card reader when not in use to keep dust and debris out. The wireless system in this notebook is made by Atheros. Using the wireless router I got when I purchased my computer, I had no problems setting up a wireless network and transferring all my files from my old system.
I quickly found a network and was able to easily download my updates. A handy LED indicator next to the switch also lets you know when your wireless antenna is enabled. This prevents you from needlessly draining your battery searching for WiFi and minimizes your exposure to extraneous radio waves. I had to load, post purchase, the following software —.
However, to be fair Toshiba does include some neat utilities, such as Touch and Launch. With this utility, a user can briefly touch a corner of the touchpad to get a translucent screen similar to this:.

CDs are burned quickly, DVDs easily played, and multitasking is accomplished with ease. I am lucky if I am able to squeeze 2 hours and 10 minutes.

This utility allows the user to configure various power profiles exactly how they want them, right down to processor speed.
