Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L505D-S6947

60% Toshiba Satellite L505D-S6947
Source: PC Mag English
The Toshiba Satellite L505D-S6947 ($599.98 list) is a fairly solid laptop, but users need to understand its limitations. When compared with similarly-priced, $600 budget laptops the Satellite matches up pretty well. But line it up against multimedia laptops, and it's probably not going to make the cut, because it lacks the power run resource-hogging multimedia applications. Still, for the money, it is a pretty good deal. You definitely get what you pay for with the underperforming Toshiba Satellite L505D-S6947.

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.

AMD Turion X2: The Turion X2 (without 64) is based on the Turion X2 Ultra, but has only 1024 MB L2 Cache and is therefore slower (performance compareable to the old Turion 64 X2). Because of new parts from the K10 architecture, the CPU should be more energy efficient.


RM-74:

Griffin based entry-level dual core processor. The cores are still based on the old K8 architecture (memory controller is newer).

16.0":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.8 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.

Toshiba is not present in the smartphone sector. As laptop manufacturer, Toshiba still had 6.6% of world market share in 2014. However it fell to only 1.6% in 2016, making only for the 8th place.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
