Toshiba Satellite A505 Laptop Review




I was recently given the opportunity to test and review the Toshiba Satellite A505 laptop computer. It is a Core 2 Duo 2.13 GHz,with 4 GB RAM, 500 GB hard drive, 16.0 in. TruBrite HD+ TFT, Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and weighs only 6.48 lb. It is relatively lightweight.

The Quad-core Processor provides unflinching performance when playing intense 3D games, creating and editing digital video, music and photos, and more.

It's Resolution+™, upconverts your standard-def DVD content into sharper and more vibrant pictures that look and feel more like HD.

The built-in webcams and microphones let you chat face-to-face, collaborate, videoconference, and improve the way you interact with the computer world.

The only drawback I have seen is that the glossy design is a fingertip magnet. It is very sleek & stylish with a pin stripe, swirl pattern.

The battery shape lifts the back of the keyboard off your lap or work surface. This provides better airflow under the notebook as well as an improved typing angle, but will make it a tighter squeeze into some laptop bags.

I have had several laptops, of all sizes and brands and this is by far the best in this price range. Again, the only drawback is the fingerprints and I certainly can get past that for quality. I may just be a Toshiba convert.
