Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A505-S6004

60% Toshiba Satellite A505 (S6004)
Source: Laptop Mag English
If you’re looking for a big-screen notebook with style and great sound, the Toshiba Satellite A505 fills the bill nicely. However, if you don’t care about chrome accents, touch-sensitive buttons, or HDMI output, the Satellite L505-GS5035 costs $70 less and offers practically the same performance. If gaming is more of a priority, the Acer 5740G (6979) has a powerful ATI Radeon GPU and costs $20 less, but you lose about half an hour of battery life. Overall, we like the A505, but wish it cost less or delivered discrete graphics at this price.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

16.0": 16 inch display-variants exist since 2008 and partially got the market share of 15 inch notebooks. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
