Toshiba Satellite A105 review: Toshiba Satellite A105

The Toshiba Satellite A105 is a no-frills media center laptop at a rock-bottom price. Though competing 15.4-inch wide-screen notebooks, such as the , the Dell Inspiron E1505, and the Micro Express EL80, all offer either slightly better performance, better battery life, or both, they charge more for it, too. If you're looking for a Media Center experience but don't want to break the bank, you should consider the Satellite A105.

We think the display should be a star feature of a notebook that ships with Windows XP Media Center Edition, but the Satellite A105's 15.4-inch, glossy, wide-screen display disappoints. It's bright and has excellent color contrast, but with its 1,280x800 native resolution--the same as many 12-inch wide screens--you're carrying a larger, heavier screen without getting any functional real estate advantage. The Satellite A105 can display 17 columns and 36 rows of a spreadsheet and show a word processing document at 150 percent with no need for horizontal scrolling, which is exactly the same as the Fujitsu LifeBook Q2010, one of the smallest ultraportables we've seen. Moreover, while 720p HD content looks exceptionally crisp, the Satellite A105's screen is too low-res for 1080i/p video.

Display aside, the notebook's other multimedia hardware, combined with Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, makes for a good audiovisual experience. The Satellite A105's speakers sound rich on the low end and crisp on the high, though their limited volume means you'll have trouble filling a room with sound. The media controls to the left of the keyboard and the front-mounted analog volume dial are complemented by a dedicated key that launches the Windows XP Media Center dashboard. The included S-Video out port makes it easy to connect to most modern TVs. Unfortunately, a remote control is conspicuously absent.

Though Toshiba could have used the Satellite A105's width to provide a full-size keyboard, the company instead opted for one that's slightly narrow. In addition, the Windows key has been relocated to the upper right, something that will undoubtedly frustrate people who depend on keyboard commands. Like other Toshiba laptops we've reviewed, the Satellite A105's touch pad is smaller than we'd prefer and lacks a dedicated scroll zone.

The Satellite A105 has more than enough ports and connections for home users. There are 10/100 Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi, and a 56Kbps modem for networking; four USB 2.0 ports; a FireWire port; two PC Card slots (but not the latest ExpressCards); S-Video out; VGA out; headphone and microphone jacks; and a 5-in 1 memory card reader for Secure Digital, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, MultiMediaCard, and xD-Picture Cards. Users who want Bluetooth, a Webcam, or a fingerprint reader will have to purchase external USB peripherals, as these features are not built in.

The Satellite A105's software package provides applications for all critical software categories. Besides Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, the notebook ships with Microsoft Works 8.5 for productivity, Microsoft OneNote 2003 for taking notes, Sonic RecordNow for burning discs, InterVideo WinDVD 5 for playing DVDs, and InterVideo WinDVD Creator 2 Platinum for making DVD videos.

The notebook's most attractive feature may be its rock-bottom price. Though the suggested retail price for our Satellite A105 is an already low $999, some retailers are selling it for $799 after rebates. For that price you get a mix of low-end to midrange components, including a 1.6GHz Intel Core Duo processor, 512MB of average 533MHz RAM, a huge 120GB hard drive that spins at 5,400rpm, and an integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics subsystem. By comparison, a similarly configured Lenovo 3000 N100 costs $998 but does not include Windows XP Media Center Edition, while a Dell Latitude E1505 can be configured with the exact same specs for $891.

On CNET Labs' performance benchmarks, the Satellite A105 held its own against notebooks with significantly faster processors, most likely due to superior power management by Toshiba. The Satellite A105 came close to matching the performance of the Lenovo 3000 N100 and the Dell Inspiron E1505, and it outran by 27 percent the Micro Express EL80, which is stocked with high-end components. Overall, we think the Satellite A105's performance should be more than enough for most home users who want to want to surf the Web, type documents, and play and burn discs.

In our battery-drain tests, the Satellite A105 offered 3 hours, 49 minutes, of away-from-the-wall work time. That's just above average for a laptop of this size and 40 minutes longer than the Lenovo 3000 N100; the Dell Inspiron E1505, however, lasted nearly an hour longer, while the Micro Express EL80 topped 6 hours of battery life.

Toshiba includes an industry-standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty with the Satellite A105. Support is accessible through a 24/7 toll-free phone line, an online knowledge base, and both a carry-in and mail-in repair service.

Overview of a Toshiba Satellite from 2005

Toshiba laptops through the ages

In the 1970s, hobbyists created a market for home PC assembly kits, leading to the creation of Apple II in 1977, various Sony desktops, and the IBM PC in 1981. 

Toshiba was falling behind in this evolving market, having focused on Japanese word processors. While the company had formed a PC unit, the department was running on a deficit and Toshiba was on the verge of giving up. 

However, according to the Toshiba Museum, the firm believed a PC focused on "mobility, smaller size, and power-saving" could save the day -- and it did. 

In 1985, the T110 debuted in Europe, described by Toshiba as the "world's first laptop PC." The T110 wasn't perfect -- using a 3.5-inch floppy disk drive rather than the 5-inch standard at the time -- and cost 500,000 yen ($4,700). However, at least 10,000 were sold, giving Toshiba the drive to develop new models.

Toshiba Satellite

‹ The templateInfobox information appliance is being considered for merging. ›

The Toshiba Satellite (dynabook Satellite in Japan) was a line of consumer-grade notebook computers marketed by Toshiba, and were some of the earliest laptops, introduced in the early-1990s, to compete with the IBM ThinkPad line. Models in the Satellite family varied greatly - from entry-level models sold at major retailers to full-fledged media center-class notebooks. The latter are labeled as "Qosmio" and sold alongside the Satellite name. The Qosmio models tended to have added features like two hard drive bays, multiple graphics cards, several input/output ports of varying design, unique case styling, backlit keyboards, significantly more powerful sound systems (built in subwoofer and amplifier), etc. The Satellite mainly competes against computers such as Acer's Aspire, Dell's Inspiron and XPS, HP's Pavilion, Stream and Envy, Lenovo's IdeaPad and Samsung's Sens.


The early models did not come with an internal CD-ROM drive, but these soon appeared as mobile technology progressed. Such models can link up with an external CD-ROM drive through the parallel port on the rear (since USB ports came later as well). Some Satellites also lacked an internal floppy disk drive, but a port on the side allowed the use of a proprietary external module for such. These machines tended to be smaller in physical size than their contemporaries.

In spring 2000, some models came with a 15-inch screen and a built-in DVD drive, a 6 GB HDD and ran at 500 MHz. They were sold for $2400 by Toshiba. They also had a model called the Satellite Pro.

Notable models included the Satellite 5005-S507 which was the first to ship with NVIDIA GeForce 4 440 Go GPU and cost $1,999. The Satellite 5105-S607 was the first laptop with cPad technology and cost $2,499. The Satellite 5205-S703 was the first laptop with built-in DVD-R/RW drive and cost $2,699.[1]

The Toshiba Satellite series was discontinued in the United States in 2016 because Toshiba has exited the consumer laptop market in that country. However, Toshiba is still selling business-oriented Portégé and Tecra in many countries, and continues to sell the Satellite brand.

A Toshiba Satellite personal computer was used to send the first email ever sent by President Bill Clinton during his presidency. The email was sent using the personal computer of White House Medical Unit Emergency Physician Dr. Robert G. Darling, and was sent to astronaut John Glenn as he was aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery.[2]


Sharp Corporation obtained 80.1% of Toshiba’s computer business and effective 1 October 2018, Dynabook Inc. (the former company name is Toshiba Client Solutions Co., Ltd.) and its subsidiaries were deconsolidated from Toshiba Group. As of April 1st 2019, this business is now known globally as 'Dynabook Inc.'. [3]
