Advantages and Disadvantages of Toshiba Satellite P750 and P770 (Review)

Satellite P750 is in fact equipped with the latest Intel processors based on Core architecture as Sandy Bridge i3 and i5 dual core and the most powerful Quad Core i7, while Satellite P770 will have only the last two CPUs. Both models can then have a maximum amount of RAM up to 8GB of DDR3 1333 MHz, while the hard disk you may choose between traditional solutions, with cuts of up to 750 GB and speed of 5400 rpm or on a modern HDD hybrid hard drive that combines a certain amount of NAND memory to speed up operations carried out by the mass storage.

Obviously, since the computer for gaming, video cards can only be supplied in the latest generation, in particular Toshiba has chosen for these two models to adopt a GT NVIDIA GeForce 540M with 1 or 2 GB of dedicated memory: it is a mainstream GPU that can run even the latest videogame titles without problems. The laptops will then also have NVIDIA Optimus, which, depending on the workload of its kind, the task entrusted to the dedicated video card or chip in the Sandy Bridge processor, so as to reduce energy consumption and increase ‘ autonomy of the handsets in question.

But the most tempting for fans of mobile gaming is the decision by Toshiba to provide Satellite P750/755 and P770/775 3D support: to implement the Japanese giant has chosen the NVIDIA 3D Vision, which provides for the adoption a panel with a high resolution and refresh rate to 120 Hz, which is synchronized by a transmitter with integrated active pair of special glasses, bundled.

The two display, which Toshiba calls TruBrite HD 3D, in 16:9 format and LED backlighting, differ only in size: Toshiba Satellite P750 has a diagonal of 15.6 “while the Satellite P770 is 17.3″ with respectively resolutions of 1366 x 768 and 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Standard equipment on both the introduction of a portable USB port based on the new and more powerful standard 3.0, the presence of a 1.3-megapixel webcam for P750 and full HD with the possibility of recovery for 3D P770, both with Face Recognition, DVB-T/Analogico optional hybrid TV tuner and hard drive protection system using 3D sensor that detects sudden acceleration, or falls from heights, immediately withdraw from the plates of the hard drive heads to prevent damage and loss of data. The installed operating system is Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Also design and materials have been revised and now the lines are clean and sleek while the surfaces with a metallic look, have a texture to cover the keyboard and piano and have a coating that prevents the annoying and unsightly fingerprints, while the keyboards are now elegant backlit by white LEDs.
