Toshiba's Satellite A100 is an affordable offering with 80GB hard-drive and 1GB memory

The A100 is a powerful and affordable media machine, but it leaves a little to be desired in build-quality

A competent laptop let down by a poor keyboard

Good display ; Solid build quality

Poor graphics performance ; Low battery life ; Sub-standard keyboard

A well-balanced all-rounder that's let down by the low-quality keyboard

One of the affordable powerful laptops we've seen

Toshiba Satellite A100-049


Should you be buying a laptop with the intention of using it for entertainment on the move, you need it to be lightweight and portable. At 2.7kg the Toshiba is light, without feeling flimsy. One slight concern is that, while its shiny metallic exterior...

For a lightweight laptop, the Satellite's casing feels capable of withstanding a few knocks. The model offers efficient performance for the price and is well suited as a mobile entertainment centre or a work unit.

Toshiba Satellite A100 review


The Satellite's curvy silver chassis was popular with our team, and weighs just 2.7kg.

Though not particularly fast, the Satellite A100 is a well-designed notebook that will satisfy most users' needs. The A100 has a good display, great speakers, lots of memory and a good keyboard. It's not quite as good as the Zoostorm, but if you don't...

The Tecra A7 may be the wiser option as it offers better performance for a similar price, but it depends on whether you value battery life or graphics performance.

Great battery life, Good all rounder

Comparatively poor performance

Toshiba Satellite A100 (PSAARA-055007)


Harmon Kardon speakers, physical external volume control, solid build

Nothing of note

The Toshiba Satellite A100 is a solid notebook for the casual home user. It doesn't top the charts with its performance, but it offers just a little more than the core components.

Toshiba Satellite A100 (PSAA9A-0CU004)


Integrating all the perks of the latest Toshiba range, the A100 delivers good performance in a portable package, with functionality for a range of use...

Good value for money, Sturdy

Mid range battery life

For the price tag, you're looking at a notebook that will carry you into the future. It's light enough to travel with, powerful enough for most tasks and seems sturdy enough to take a few knocks.
