It's certainly not a speed demon then, but Vista trundles along nicely. Start hurling processor-intensive tasks at it, though, and it will start to struggle. PCMark05 returned an overall score of 4548, which is further indication of the A350's middle-of-the-road performance.

The relatively poor result of 2215 in PCMark05's graphics test is down Toshiba's decision to cut costs and go with Intel's integrated chipset.
