Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L505-S5969
Source: Comp Reviews
Toshiba's Satellite L505-S5969 is a very low priced offering that can be found for roughly $500 that comes with some nice features. This includes a USB/eSATA combo port that allows one to use extremely fast eSATA hard drives with the system and a full sized keyboard with numeric keypad. The extremely low price does have some frawbacks including the lack of a HDMI port, poor speaker volume and no support for the recently ratified 802.11n wireless. Still, it offers a very compelling package for those on a tight budget.

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.
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.
