Reviews for the Toshiba A505D-S6987
When dealing with a notebook like Toshiba's A505D-S6987, what we're really looking at is the value proposition. No one builds the perfect notebook and it's always going to be an exercise in compromises. Toshiba lists (or listed) an MSRP of $799 on their site, and that price is very steep when other AMD-based notebooks can be found for less.

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Middle class dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based (partially?) on the K10 core (desktop Athlon II). The performance should be compareable to a 2.0-2.1GHz Core 2 Duo / Pentium.
