Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P505D-S8007
Big-screen desktop replacement laptops are one of the greatest sources of highway robbery in the entire retail computer-shopping world. It's always tempting to gravitate to a massive 18-inch model flooded with LED lights and dream of a superpowered experience, especially when the price is reasonable. However, buyers beware. The Toshiba Satellite P505D-S8007 may look like a sleek big-screen laptop, but underneath it has some seriously hobbled performance compared with its competitors.

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).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
