M505 - Definitely surprised me with its performance

By 

from Lynden, WA

Comments about Toshiba Satellite M505 Notebook PC:

When i was first looking for a laptop i wasn't really interested in graphics or anything. just wanted something that works great but is nice and small. However after i got it my friend suggested a game to me so i tried it out and the graphics blew my friend away. Considering the size it is a great laptop and compatable with almost anything. Just make sure that you check your graphics. Mine were defaulty set at 1024x768 but when i changed it to 12366x768 and the resulution was greatly affected. All in all this is a great laptop for any one who just likes sitting around at home and hanging out or going places.

Ease of Use
Very slick and easy to adapt to, the relatively small size makes it easy to carry anywhere.

Battery Life
My battery has slowly wasted away but as long as you have and AC adapter it isn't a problem.

Design
Love the special edition effects on the top and keyboard.

Durability
I bashed it around a few times and it still is in great condition, nothing has broken or fallen off.

Excellent computer for the price!

By 

from North Little Rock, AR

Comments about Toshiba Satellite M505 Notebook PC:

I bought this Toshiba computer last year and love it!  I am on the computer every day for about six or seven hours a day and it does everything I need it to. I store a lot of photos and pictures on my computer and it hasn't slowed down yet!  The Toshiba laptop is capable of multitasking like a pro! I play games, do online surveys and check my social network at the same time with ease. I do not ever have a problem with the computer lagging or with it hanging up as my old laptop did.

The Toshiba Satellite has built in wifi connectivity via a network adapter. It is simple to connect to the internet via your own wireless network or to those provided for free at restaurants and coffee shops. The battery life is excellent on this model and can provide you with hours of entertainment.

If you are looking for a laptop that is stylish, reliable and fun, the Toshiba Satellite is the computer for you!

Average Laptop

Comments about Toshiba Satellite M505 Notebook PC:

So I was in an emergency where I needed a laptop right away and I decided to buy the Toshiba Satellite M505D PC Notebook. When I turned it on for the first time I was impressed with the brightness that came from the notebook, the very top of the writing pad there are makers lighted up for volume and play and fast forward that you just press (its not a key) and it beeps and raises the volume, etc. I've had this notebook since February and have already encountered a problem 2 months in when I found randomly that one of the keys had become loose and it was one of those keys at the very top that no one really uses so it wasn't do to wear and tear, and what wear and tear the notebook was 2 months old. I called toshiba and they told me that I had to mail in my brand new laptop so that they could fix the key, and I haven't been able to do so since I need my notebook for work, so the notebook is already giving me problems. Lastly the mouse pad on the bottom of the key board can at times makes things go haywire. You will be typing an email and might rub up against the pad and the font will shrink or the words you just typed will just up into another sentence, and it can become really annoying.

I would recommend this laptop to everyone. =]]  It's light-weight and very portable. It also has built-in WiFi access, which is nice for if I go to coffee shops [Starbucks, Port City Java, etc.], the library, or other places that may have it. <333

amazing

By 

from Macon, GA

Comments about Toshiba Satellite M505 Notebook PC:

This computer is wonderful for several reasons. The first reason is it size. This particular model is considered a notebook because of its sleek style and small size. The computer is small enough to carry around on your everyday activities It is small enough to put in a small bag for easy accessibility. The next plus about this computer is the graphics. The graphics on the computer are ones that defy the average computer graphics. Videos and pictures are enhanced by the exceptional screen. The speed of the computer is amazing, the internet is extremely fast and the use of the computer is made more enjoyable based on the computer's speed. Downloading applications and programs is not a hassle because the downloads depending on the size take little to no time. The only major grype I would have about this computer is the wireless connectivity.Sometime I have a difficult time receiving a signal from wi fi networks. I may have have to refresh the connection list twice. However, this is not a major problem that would discourage me from buying this computer. Overall this a GREAT computer.

Toshiba Satellite- Amazing Deal- Whole package!

By 

from Greensboro, NC

Comments about Toshiba Satellite M505 Notebook PC:

I bought this computer mid- July and have yet to find a fault.  I use my computer for virtually everything.  I take it with me when I travel and use it as my main computer at home.  It is smaller than my previous laptop which I've enjoyed.  The size makes the laptop more portable and easier to travel with.

The computer came with Microsoft Office Student already included which was a great deal for the price!  There isn't a feature that is missing.  The built-in camera is an added bonus as I already had one from previous use.  I do find it requires good lighting in the room where you are using the camera but aside from that, it works great.

The keyboard is a little different.  There aren't indentations in the keys- it's all just a smooth surface.  That does make typing a little different; not more difficult- just different.

I would suggest this computer to anyone who is looking for a solid computer with all the essentials.  Probably has more than someone needs who just wants to check their e-mail, but for someone that wants to store lots of pictures, music, videos, or gaming- this is an excellent choice!
