The Power of One Infographic

University challenge

Its entertainment capabilities define the P775 as a machine for youngsters looking not merely for a computer but also a box that combines games console, flat-planel telly and disc player - students with freshly banked grant money to burn, for example. They'll need that load cheque - the P775 is priced at £1200, more than twice the price of your average budget 15-incher.

Toshiba Satellite P775

No guesses as to what OS it runs...

Kitted out in a "metallic urban black" colour scheme - glossy black with a shallow-ribbed texture to diffuse the light it reflects - his is a laptop for a lad: big and black, weighty with performance potential and a backlit go-faster stripe above the touchpad.

Speaking of which, what eejit decided it should be placed right on the laptop's leading edge? You'll be pushing away to right- or left-click and failing because the buttons aren't an inch or so in, where your fingers' muscle memory thinks they are.

Benchmark performance? Not at all bad. The P775's PCMark Vantage score of 6600 is good but not a stand-out score either, the Nvidia GPU's 7945 3DMark 06 points likewise.

Verdict

The Satellite P775 is nice enough to look at if you favour boy-racer kit, and puts in a reasonable performance too. It's just not particularly exciting and - compared to the similarly specced yet faster Samsung RF711 - overpriced. ®
