Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L500-13Z
Source: Digital Versus
Toshiba’s L500 range is affordable. According to Toshiba they "deliver solid performance for handling life’s essentials". Which is handy as this is typically the type of machine a lot of us are looking for! The Toshiba L500-13Z is a straight up and down entry level machine. It does what you ask of it and handles internet, office docs and video/photo viewing. Some gaming is also possible.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570: Lower middle-class GPU that features a low shader count and a 64 Bit memory bus but a high clock speed. Similar to the desktop Radeon 4550. Supports Avivo HD and DirectX 10.1.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.
Entry class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.
