In the 'Productivity' test, the X205-SLi4 faired well against the ASUS C90S which was running 500MHz faster.



Vantage TV and Movies suite includes the following tests:

Once again, the Satellite X205-SLi4 performed competitively against the faster ASUS C90S, keeping the test within 108 points.



Vantage Music suite includes the following tests:
