Summary: I have had my Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018 for over 3 years now and am amazed at how long its lasted and how durable it is. Even compared to newer models, it is still relatively fast. I have had absolutely no major problems with it. I love Toshiba's Satellite series laptops. I've had 2 so far and just placed an order with them for a custom built new one. But, in all honesty, I feel a little sad setting aside my beloved old laptop for a new model.
Summary: I am very happy with this machine and do plan on staying with Toshiba in the future. I have had 4 of their machines and have never had a bad one. This model is perfect for anything you would want or need to do at home or small business with nice speed and functionality. The display is nice with vibrant colors, the speakers do not get very loud but still nice. The processor is quick and responsive.
Pros: Very reliable, fast enough for home use, webcam is nice, hard drive is large enough for non-business use. Works well for online gaming (WOW, Minecraft, etc). Durable. I spent around $325 at Bestbuy after I done a little research online. Good decision
Cons: It does run hot, I would suggest using some type of protector for your lap if you're going to use it on your lap very often. Do not just sit it on the bed and run it, it will cause the hard drive to overheat.
Toshiba is a wonderful product and E-Bay is the place to get one!

Summary: This is an awesome little laptop, very fast and just perfect for me. I had another one (another brand) that crashed on me, so I needed one quick. It even came earlier than I expected and everyone else in the family is jealous. I would definitely recommend Toshiba to everyone.
Toshiba made a winner with this laptop, I recommend it with an A+ rating.

Summary: I have owned my Toshiba L505D-GS6000 for a couple of years now and I love it. It runs pretty much any program I want it to. I purchased it because it has a large screen, a number keypad, came with 4 gigs of ram and runs an AMD processor. The only complaints I have had are that the DVD-RW drive sometimes refuses to play DVDs that I have just burned with it. Even though I test the DVD in a different player and it works just fine.
