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. As expected, 3DMark06 proved to be a similar struggle for the A350, with a score of 971 at 1280 x 720. So, while fine for general Windows tasks, a gaming machine the A350 is not.
