This laptop is powered by the Intel Core i5-460M CPU. This  is a dual-core, 64-bit processor with 4 processing threads.  The cores operating at 2.53GHz normally, but can be boosted up to 2.8GHz with TurboBoost technology.  It has 3MB of L3 cache and uses 35W.  The laptop comes with 4GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB. That’s plenty of memory for all of your multitasking needs. It uses the Mobile Intel HM55 Express Chipset.

The screen is a 13.3” diagonal widescreen TruBrite® TFT display with a resolution of 1366×768.  This display is LED backlit for lower power consumption and native support for 720p content.  The screen is driven by Mobile Intel HD Graphics with 64MB-1696MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory.  This is not the laptop you want, if you want to play today’s games at their highest resolutions.

For storage there’s a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  That’s a big drive with plenty of space for all your music, digital photos and more. To keep your data safe it’s protected by the Toshiba Hard Drive Impact Sensor. The optical drive is a DVD SuperMulti  drive supporting 11 format.  The memory card reader supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Mini SD Card, and MultiMedia Card formats.

For networking you get a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet port available through the standard RJ-45 port for your wired networking needs.  On the wireless side you get Wi-Fi Wireless networking with an 802.11 b/g/n adapter.  You can use those networking options and the webcam and microphone for video chatting.

Other features include built-in stereo speakers, a premium spill-resistant raised tile keyboard and a TouchPad pointing device with multi-touch control.  External ports include 1 RGB port, 1 HDMI port, 1 microphone in, 1 headphone output port, and 3 USB v2.0 ports (2 USB + 1 eSATA/USB combo with USB sleep and charge).

The system comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Adobe® Acrobat® Reader, Google Toolbar, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 8, Microsoft Office Starter 2010, Microsoft Windows Media Player 12, Microsoft Silverlight™,  Microsoft Live Essentials Photo Gallery,  Messenger, Mail,  Writer,  Movie Maker,  WildTangent Games Console, Intuit Quickbooks  Financial Center, KidZui™, The Internet for Kids,  NetZero Internet Service, Norton Internet Security™ 2011 (30-day trial subscription), Skype and Toshiba Online Backup (30-day trial subscription).

The laptop measures 12.44″x8.94″x.72″/1.01″ and weighs a light 3.2 pounds.  Definitely a portable machine.  The 6 cell (66Wh) Lithium ion battery pack can provide up to 8 hours of unplugged power.  A very good mark for a laptop.
