If you're looking to do Core Duo on the cheap, it looks like Toshiba has you pretty well covered with their Satellite M105-S3011 laptop. It's no steal like Dell's Inspiron E1505, but for $1,050 direct -- and we're guessing cheaper at retail -- you get one of the lightest laptops in this price range (5.2 pounds, same as the MacBook), along with a few other perks to aid you in your Dell-free travels. The 1.6GHz Core Duo T2300 processor is sort of par for the course, but nothing to sneeze at, though with integrated graphics and 512MB of RAM the laptop does lag a bit in speed tests. But with a good-looking 1280 x 800 14.1-inch widescreen LCD, 100GB HDD, DVD+R DL disc drive and 3 hours 38 minutes of battery life, most non-gamers should be kept pretty well occupied. There's also FireWire, S-Video, four USB ports and a 4-in-1 card reader, along with dedicated media playback keys and a preboot app for media playback without booting the computer. PC Mag definitely recommends another stick of RAM, but were otherwise pleased with this value offering from Toshiba.
