Excerpt: Toshiba Fusion Satellite P305-S8825 laptop with a 17.1-inch widescreen has two big features going for it. The first is its overwhelming utility with 802.11a/b/g/n connectivity, 3 GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo processor and Vista Home Premium. The second set of notable features include, advanced ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 with 256 MB graphics memory plus 767 MB shared graphics memory.
Summary: After we removed some software, we warmed to the Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8900. Its performance jumped, making the $799 price a bargain. Add to that a bright, high-res display, booming speakers, attractive design, face recognition, and Sleep-and-Charge USB ports, and you've got a desktop replacement that we'd easily recommend for those on a budget.
Excerpt: Some days, we almost miss Toshiba’s signature battleship gray notebook PCs—the latest look for the company’s long-running Satellite series is just a bit too much. After a few hours of use, our Satellite P305-S8825 was covered with fingerprints. And that was with clean paws! If you like snacking on Pringles while surfing the web, this rig will look as hygienic as the sneeze guard at a Baskin-Robbins after a class of third-graders has visited.
Pros: Vibrant and bright screen; low price.
Cons: Horrible battery life and infested with bloatware.
Excerpt: If you're in the market for a great, dependable Windows Vista-based laptop, the Toshiba Satellite is the perfect portable PC. Packed with a solid amount of processor speed, RAM, and a sizeable hard drive, this computer means business. And after working with the Toshiba QOSIMO earlier this year (read my review here ), I know that Toshiba makes a great laptop. Whenever I review a product, I try to do so in a real-world scenario.
