good student computer but not so hot for media users

Summary: if you need a simple device this item is perfect. I was a little befuddled that this device didnt have an hdmi and bluetooth. I would have most likely settled on another item if I had known but once I opened the package i ended up being pleasantly surprised by the built in speakers on the device and also the display.
Summary: I bought my laptop about 1 month before going to college. It worked perfectly then, but after coming to college the laptop has stopped working. The first time it was in sleep mode and when I came back to turn it on it wouldnt turn on. I pressed the power button, I did the thing with removing the battery and holding the power button for 30 seconds and still nothing. 8 hours later I try to turn it on and it does.
Summary: Awful speakers, tiny sound, no depth - can't hear it with any other noise in the background - not even with the AC running!!!!! If you need a laptop for anything that involves listening to sounds (playing music, DVDs, audiobooks, using Skype...), forget about it. And the customer service is crap. Simply return it before it's too late.
Summary: I have the Toshiba Satellite L505. It's the first laptop I've had and I really like it and especially like Windows 7. However, I bought mine at Best Buy for $525, so I saved quite a bit at Best Buy than if I had gotten it through Amazon.
Summary: At the beginning I was satisfied with the product. But in less than a year it started giving problems. First, sound didn't want to work. I sent the computer which was in warranty and it got a change in the motherboard and the speakers, which didn't do anything because it stills doesn't work. Then the battery is dying, in almost the same period of time, it has to be change (I don't know how because is money I dont have).
Summary: Toshiba Laptop L505-GS5035 is a great Laptop for the money, all the reviews I have read concerning the built in speakers are correct, The speakers volume and sound quality are less than desireable.
