Excerpt: The Toshiba P305D really brings a good amount to work with to the forefront. It is equipted with ATI raedon graphics card as well as its much admired harmon kardon speakers built in. Along with its Fusion finish, it truly makes for a deam laptop for someone who would want it for media purposes or even hardcore gaming. Very appealing visually and crisp clear image on its 17'' lcd display as well as built in webcam makes it very versatile and multifunctional.
Excerpt: My husband researched laptop computers for 6 months. We purchased the Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8900. The screen is 17" which is a bit big. We had a hard time finding a case that fit and fit our budget. Different than a PC keyboard takes a little getting used to, especially the mouse. My husband is on it all the time. Battery life is about 3 hrs., which works for us. Would recommend this product. We are enjoying our Laptop Computer.
Toshiba Satellite is a decent laptop for the money.

Excerpt: The picture and sound quality are great on the Toshiba. And I like the feel of the keyboard. But it often will stop typing mid sentence, which is very annoying. I am not happy with the Windows Vista operating system And I am not happy with Toshiba's customer service. When there are problems, they always refer me to someone else. Not helpful at all! It is a decent laptop for the money, but don't think I'd recommend it.
This is without a doubt the most excellent laptop on the market

Excerpt: The laptop is well constructed and with a very nice finish and large wide screen. It is packed with lots of features, including the Athalon 64 processor and 4 gig of DDR fast memory. The machine comes with Windows Vista Home Premium and several other software applications to test. Overall, it performs well, is durable, and a steal for the shelf price. I was able to easily install all types of software applications, without in compatability issues.
Conclusion: Touch pad is very accurate. The display is ok. I like its innovative feature, that you can plug in and charge any USB devices if the laptop is in sleep mode or even totally powered off. This laptop is great for basic multitasking, such as Web surfing, office work and so on. I don't like that its battery life is only about 1.5 hour. Overall, good machine.
Summary: I have had this laptop for a month now. It is really above my expectations,especially its glossy surface. The performance is fairly good too. it sorts of boots a bit slower than i expected but not too slow though.
Summary: Great large display. Bit too heavy to carry around but recommended as a desktop replacement. The shiny keyboard is hard to keep clean and its looks need getting used to. Otherwise, Vista locked up on the initial setup. All other loaded software worked. Tech Service at toshiba was very helpful. This laptop seems more solid than my other Dell laptops (2 latitudes.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Great Software, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: I would rate this product much higher if I didn't have to struggle to activate my internet link and then my wireless system. I have yet to get the wirless link stabilized. My level of expertise may be the problem but things should not be that difficult. I'm certain my opinion of this product will be much higher once I get things working properly.
Summary: I researched Laptop/Notebooks for weeks, when I found this one I had to jump on it.The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 graphics card is great, I have been playing some heavy graphic games like Company of Heroes, Flight Simulator X, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Halo 2 and a few others with full settings, and no lag or stutters.
