Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L505-S5969

80% Toshiba Satellite L505-S5969 15.6-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
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.

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.

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.

15.6": 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. However 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.


2.7 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.
