The laptop comes with the AMD Turion II CPU (M500) 64-bit dual-core processor running at 2.2 GHz. It has 1 MB of L2 cache and is built on a 45 nm die.  The chipset used is the AMD M880G. This system comes with 4GB of DDR2 memory and can be expanded to 8GB.

The screen is a 16.0” diagonal widescreen TruBrite® TFT LCD display at 1366 x 768 resolution.  That gives native support for any 720p content you may have. The screen is driven by the ATI® Radeon™ HD 4200 graphics engine with up to 1918 MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. Shared memory means the system could slow down during graphically intensive applications (like games).

For storage you get a 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  Big enough so you won’t get cramped too quickly. The optical drive is a DVD SuperMulti drive with Labelflash® supporting 11 formats. The multiformat media reader supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO and MultiMediaCard for fast and easy digital photo transfer.

For networking you can use the integrated 10/100 Ethernet adapter by plugging a cable into the RJ-45 port.  Or, you can use the Wi-Fi® Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n) for surfing at Starbucks.  You can use that networking to video chat using the built-in webcam and microphone.

External ports include 1 RGB monitor output, 1 micrphone in,  1 headphone out, 3 USB v2.0 ports (1 eSATA/USB combo) and a security lock slot. This laptop does have internal speakers and featurs a TouchPad pointing device with multi-touch control.

The laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system.  Other software includes a bunch of Toshiba crapware and Microsoft® Windows Media Player, Microsoft® Works 9, Microsoft® Office Live Essentials including Photo Gallery, Messenger, Mail and Writer, Microsoft® Silverlight™, Sonic Solutions® Roxio Creator™ 2010, Internet Explorer 8, Adobe® Acrobat® Reader, Google® Toolbar, Sun® Java™ 2 Runtime Environment, Norton Internet Security™ 2010, 30-day trial, Microsoft® Office Home and Student 2007 Edition, 60-day trial.

The laptop measures 15.1″x10.2″x1.4″/1.55″ and weighs 6 pounds which puts it a bit on the heavy side.  The 6 cell (4000 mAh) Lithium Ion battery pack can provide up to 3 hours of battery life. Alternatively,  you can use the included 75W autosensing 100-240V AC adapter which weighs .69 pounds itself.

You can find the Toshiba Satellite L505D-GS6000 laptop for around $550.
