Real Applications

Next we tested the notebooks in a few real-life applications.

The notebooks take the same time to encode video with the DivX 6.7 codec because they have identical processors.

The Satellite U300-111 is slower at encoding MP3 files, probably due to its slower hard disk. Toshiba’s notebook is better when working on the battery, though.

The Photoshop CS2 test (processing five 5-megapixel photos) is sensitive to the amount of system memory, and the Satellite U300-111 is superior here.

The notebooks equal each other at executing our Microsoft Excel script but the Satellite U300-111 is somewhat better in the battery mode.

The Toshiba is faster at archiving the test folder due to the above-mentioned reasons.

In the next test a script is used that prepares a video clip for uploading to YouTube. The clip was made out of four video fragments captured from a digital camera. Oddly enough, the notebooks are equals when powered by the batteries but the Satellite U300-111 is far faster when powered by the mains.

The final rendering test produces nearly identical results.
