Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5874

60% Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5874 15.4-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Toshiba's Satellite L305D-S5874 is one of many different configurations they have available. It is based around the AMD processor that gives it a bit of a disadvantage in terms of overall performance, but for many people it will be sufficient for their needs. The added integrated ATI graphics give it an edge over the integrated Intel solutions, but it still lacks the performance of dedicated graphics. The end result is an average budget system that has a fairly attractive price tag.

Comment

ATI Radeon HD 3100: Slower clocked Radeon HD 3200 onboard graphic chip with a reduced feature set (missing HD video decoding features?). Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D acceleration because of a driver problem.

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

QL-60:

Similar to the Turion X2 CPU, but with reduced power saving functions (no deep sleep, only 2 instead of 3 P-states).

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.


2.6 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.
