Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P505-S8010

The Toshiba Satellite P505-S8010 ($950 street) joins an exclusive group of laptops that have colossal 18.4-inch widescreens—the largest ones on the market. It's also referred to as a media center, which is basically a gigantic laptop that caters to home theater enthusiasts and videophiles. While the processor and graphics duo put on a good performance show, this Satellite configuration failed to deliver a full HD and user experience worthy of the "media center" name.

Toshiba’s first 18-inch notebook with Intel’s Core i3 CPU features solid performance, an attractive design, and rich sound at a wallet-friendly price. It’s not a gaming powerhouse by any stretch, but those looking for a rock solid multimedia machine with punchy speakers for an affordable price will enjoy the $949 Toshiba Satellite P505-S8010. In short, shoppers desirous of a big-screen notebook that won’t break the break will find a lot to like.

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.
