Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A505-S6999

60% Toshiba Satellite A505-S6999 16-inch Thin And Light Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Toshiba's Satellite A505-S6999 has some very unique features that set it apart from many other laptops. Most notable of these is the inclusion of a 64GB solid state drive along with a sizable 500GB hard drive. This provides it with some outstanding storage performance and very fast boot times. It also comes equipped with 6GB for great support of multitasking and memory intensive programs. The big downside though is that this is a beast of a machine that has much more bulk and weight than 15-inch laptops.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M: The GeForce GT 230M features 48 shader cores as the 9700M GTS but only a 64 bit memory bus. Because of the 40nm process the power consumption is in the region of the GT 130M.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


P7450: Entry level Core 2 Duo processor with 3 MB Level 2 Cache and due to the 25 Watt TDP also suited for 13" laptops.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


16.0":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

3.3 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.

Toshiba is not present in the smartphone sector. As laptop manufacturer, Toshiba still had 6.6% of world market share in 2014. However it fell to only 1.6% in 2016, making only for the 8th place.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
