Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite M305D-S4828

60% Toshiba Satellite M305D-S4828
Source: Laptop Mag English Archive.org version
The Toshiba Satellite M305D-S4828 won’t blow you away with blazing speed or killer 3D graphics, but it has more than enough horsepower to handle your everyday workload. For less than $900 you get lots of storage, decent graphics performance, and better-than-average audio output, all in an attractive, lightweight package. If you want to trade graphics performance in for longer battery life, you might want to opt for the Intel-powered Gateway T-Series, but overall we like the price-to-performance ratio and design of this notebook.

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.

AMD Turion X2 Ultra: The AMD Turion X2 Ultra is part of the Puma platform and a mixture of the old K9 core (form the Turion 64 X2) and some parts of the K10 architecture (memorycontroller, hypertransport, crossbar switch from the Phenom). Because of the increased L2 cache ("Ultra" CPUs) and the improved memory controller, the performance increased a bit. Still a similar clocked Core 2 Duo is noticably faster.


ZM-80:

Mixture out of two K8 based cores and K10 uncores (e.g. memory controller). Offers improved power saving functions compared to older Turion CPUs but still not as good and fast as a Core 2 Duo. The ZM-80 is the slowest CPU of the ZM series and a entry level CPU in 2008.

14.10":

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.

Toshiba was one of the largest manufacturers of personal computers, consumer electronics, home appliances and medical equipment.


60%: Such a poor rating is rare. There are only a few notebooks that were rated even worse. The rating websites do not give a purchase recommendation here.
