The CPU inside this laptop is the dual-core AMD Athlon II M300 running at 2.0 GHz.  This processor has similar performance to an Intel Core 2 Duo T5850.  This is a 64-bit processor with 1 MB of L2 cache.  The motherboard uses the AMD M860G Chipset. The system comes with 2GB of DDR2 800 MHz RAM and can be upgraded to 8 GB.

The display is a 15.6″ HD TruBrite LCD screen with a resolution of 1366×768.  It has a 16:9 aspect ratio and can support 720p resolution natively. The graphics engine is the ATI® Radeon™ 4100.   It uses a dynamically allocated 256MB-1918MB shared graphics memory, which means you can expect system slowdowns during graphically intensive tasks.  The GPU does support Microsoft DirectX 10.1 and Shader 4.0.

For storage the laptop has a 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive running at 5400 RPM.  This drive is a bit on the low and slow side.  The optical drive is a DVD SuperMulti drive supporting 11 formats, so nothing special there.

On the networking side you get basic 10/100 Ethernet LAN through the RJ-45 port and Wi-Fi® Wireless networking (802.11b/g) with the wireless adapter.  Not exactly top of the line either.  This laptop does not have a webcam or internal microphone, so no video chatting unless you buy an external webcam. No modem and no Bluetooth support either.

The laptop does have an internal sound card and built-in stereo speakers.

The built-in memory card reader supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Mini SD Card, Micro SD Card, Memory Stick™, Memory Stick PRO™, and MultiMedia Card [shared slot].  Other ports include RGB (monitor) output port, microphone input port, headphone output port, 3 USB v2.0 ports (2 USB + 1 eSATA/USB combo), and a slot for a Security Lock.

The laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition. Other software includes Microsoft® Office Home and Student 2007 Edition (60-day trial), TOSHIBA Power-Saving eco Utility™, TOSHIBA ConfigFree®, TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor, TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator, WildTangent® Orb™ Games Console, Hard disc (HDD) recovery, TOSHIBA Face Recognition, TOSHIBA DVD Player, Microsoft® Works Version 9.0, TOSHIBA Disc Creator, Microsoft® Silverlight™ , Norton Internet Security™ 2010 (30-day trial), Microsoft® Windows Live Essentials including Photo Gallery, Messenger, Mail and Writer., TOSHIBA Bulletin Board™, and TOSHIBA ReelTime™.

The computer measures 15.10″ x 10.20″ x 1.40″ – 1.55″ and weighs in at 6 pounds.  It comes with a 6-cell  Lithium ion battery pack (4000mAh).

The Toshiba Satellite L505D-LS5005 laptop can be found for around $499.
