Toshiba Satellite A505 S6007 with Intel Core i3 Processor

Toshiba Satellite A505-S6007 Laptop

This laptop features Intel’s latest Core i3-330M processor. The Core i3 features dual cores capable of four processing threads.  It is a 64-bit processor that comes with 2 MB of L3 cache, runs at 2.26 GHz and built on a 32 nm die.  That means lower power, and less heat, which is ideal for a laptop.  It has 4 GB of DDR3 RAM (800MHz) and can be expanded to 8 GB.  Perfect for multitasking.

The screen is a 16″ HD TruBrite LCD display with a resolution of 1366×768.  It supports 720p content with its 16:9 aspect ratio. The display is driven by an IntelGraphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, which can share up to 1696 MB of system memory for video.  This chip is compatible with Microsoft DirectX 10. The shared memory means this system will experience slowdowns during graphically intensive tasks like games.

For storage you get a standard 500 GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400 RPM.  Plenty of size, but skimpy on speed.  Still it should be good enough for most purposes.  The optical drive is a DVD-SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash™ drive.

You can video chat with the webcam and microphone built in to the bezel.  You can also use the included face recognition software to use the webcam as a security device. And listen to them on the Harmon Kardon speakers.

You have three different levels of networking on this machine.   If you want to go old school, you can hook up a telephone line to the internal modem.  With this you’ll be able to experience the joys of waiting for pages to load, just like you did in 1999.  You can step up and use the integrated 802.11b/g/n WiFi wireless adapter.  If you don’t like the freedom of movement that wireless offers you can always hook up a cable to the RJ-45 jack for 10/100 Ethernet.

The notebook comes with a 6-in-1 Memory Card Reader that accepts Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, MultiMediaCard, and xD Picture Card (shared slot). There’s also a spot for a ExpressCard/34 and ExpressCard/54 slot.  Other external ports include RGB port (monitor), HDMI port, 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 eSATA/USB (2.0) combo port with Sleep,  S/PDIF output (shared with headphone port), headphone jack, microphone input and a slot for a security lock.

The system comes installed with Microsoft Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition.  Other software includes TOSHIBA Bulletin Board™, TOSHIBA ReelTime™, TOSHIBA ConfigFree®, TOSHIBA Power-saving eco utility™, Corel® DVD MovieFactory® for TOSHIBA, TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor, TOSHIBA Disc Creator, WildTangent® Orb™ Games Console, TOSHIBA Hard Drive Impact Sensor (3D sensor), Hard disc (HDD) recovery, TOSHIBA Face Recognition, Microsoft® Office Home and Student 2007 Edition (60-day trial), Microsoft® Works Version 9.0, TOSHIBA DVD Player, Microsoft® Silverlight™ , Norton Internet Security™ 2010 (30-day trial),  and Microsoft® Windows Live Essentials including Photo Gallery, Messenger, Mail and Writer.

The laptop comes with a 5200 mAh 6-cell Lithium ion battery pack for 2.5 hours of unplugged power and a 65 W AC adapter.  The system measures 15.1″ W x 10.2″ D x 1.44″~1.61″ H and weighs 6.48 pounds.  It comes with a 2 year warranty (1 year on battery).

The Toshiba Satellite A505-S6007 is an exclusive to Costco and can be found there for around $780.
