Toshiba Satellite L505 S5993 TruBrite 15.6 Inch LaptopFrom Toshiba comes the Satellite L505-S5993 laptop computer with TruBright 15.6″ LCD display.  It’s full of features that make it a good choice for a home desktop replacement, or for a student going away to college. The 15.6″ display offers 1366×768 pixels with native 720p HD viewing.  The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD uses shared memory and can drive an external display up to a resolution of 1920×1200.  This system would be great for watching DVDs at home or at the office (if you have that kind of office).

The 2.1 GHz Intel Pentium T4300 dual-core processor comes with 1MB L2 cache and an 800 MHz front side bus (FSB).  This powerful CPU will make surfing the net, playing games, chatting and watching movies all at the same time a smooth experience..

The 500 GB Serial ATA hard drive gives you plenty of space for all of your apps, pictures, movies and email.  The system comes installed with 4GB of memory, which should be enough for most people but it is expandable to up to 8GB.  The laptop also comes equipped with an 8x SuperMulti DVD drive capable of dealing with double layer discs.

A new feature is the 1.3 Megapixel webcam with face recognition capabilities which adds an extra layer of security in case your laptop gets stolen.  Toshiba’s Face Recognition system gives you a quick and hands-free way to secure your system.  No more typing in passwords or swiping your greasy fingers on the fingerprint readers.  Also nice is a full 104-key keyboard with integrated number pad for easy data entry.  For home networking the system comes with a 10/100 Ethernet port and draft-N Wi-Fi networking (802.11b/g/n) for long range and greater speeds.

For expansion the system comes with 3 USB 2.0 ports, 1 external VGA port, a 5-in-1 card reader (Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, Multi Media Card, xD Picture Card) making it easy to transfer the  pictures from your digital camera and other digital media to this beast.  It also has a headphone, microphone and RJ45 networking jacks.

For software the system comes installed with Windows Home Premium (64-bit), Microsoft Works and Microsoft Office Home and Student Edition (60-day trial). Norton Internet Security (30-day trial), Toshiba PC Health Monitor and Google Toolbar are also preinstalled.

The system is EnergyStar 5.0 certified, and meets EPEAT Gold standards for reduced environmental impact. It also uses reduced levels of lead, mercury and other hazardous substances in its manufacture.  It does come with a 4000 mAh 6-Cell Lithium ion battery pack for nearly 3 hours of unplugged use.

The system does not come with an HDMI output adapter,  so connecting to your HDTV is not as easy as other laptops equipped with HDMI.  You can find this laptop online for around $625.
