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.

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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": 16 inch display-variants exist since 2008 and partially got the market share of 15 inch notebooks. 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.


2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.

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.
