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.

The entry-level Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025 ($829.98 list), sold at Staples, evolves from its predecessor, the Satellite L505D-S5996 ($580.00 list, ), by bringing another 1GB of memory to the party, stepping up the AMD Turion II CPU and accompanying integrated ATI graphics chip a notch (albeit for an extra $250). You can find faster, better designed, and longer running low-cost laptops than the Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025.

Toshiba reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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.

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200).

ATI Radeon HD 4100: The HD 4100 is a stripped down version of the HD 4200. Probably the clock speed of the chip is reduced and therefore also the performance.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.

» 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).

AMD Turion II:

M520: Entry level dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based (partially?) on the K10 core. The performance should be most of the times compareable to a 2.0 Celeron Dual Core / Pentium (sometimes even to a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo).

AMD Athlon II:

M300:

Entry level dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based (partially?) on the K10 core. The performance should be compareable to an old Merom based 1.8 Core 2 Duo. The CPU supports 64 Bit and Virtualization.

2.6 kg:

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

2.8 kg:


65%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
