Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5921

60% Toshiba Satellite L300 Series (L305-S5921)
Source: Laptop Mag English
This wallet-friendly notebook offers good-enough performance for basic computing without forcing too many trade-offs. If you’re looking to surf the Web, check e-mail, and stream content on a bigger screen than a netbook can offer, the $499 Toshiba Satellite L305-S5921 is a compelling choice. Spending $300 more will get you the Gateway MD7801u, which provides more processing punch, a 1.3-MP webcam, and more than double the hard drive capacity; and for just $100 you can get a better-equipped version of this Toshiba notebook with a faster dual-core CPU and webcam. But if all you need are the basics, this is a solid system.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


T3400: Merom based entry-level Pentium Dual-Core processor with some reduced power saving functions compared to Core 2 Duo CPUs.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
