Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite M505-S4020

50% Toshiba Satellite M505-S4020
Source: PC World English
Take a standard, zippy laptop, slather on a thick layer of gloss--almost literally--and you've got the $999 Toshiba Satellite M505-S4020. This midrange portable smoothly handles Microsoft Office, online tools, media playback, and other general-purpose applications. Don't be fooled by the glossy features and finish. While it’s fast enough for typical business applications, this Satellite cuts corners.

If you thought spending $999.99 on a thin-and-light laptop meant having to make compromises, the Toshiba Satellite M505-S4020 might force you to re-evaluate your assumptions. One of the best-performing under-$1,000 laptops we’ve seen, this Satellite comes with loads of extras, including a touch screen and HDMI and eSATA ports.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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.


330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.3 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
