Toshiba Satellite P505-S8980

9 February 2010
  • Summary: The Toshiba Satellite P505-S8980 boasts a huge display and a good feature set for the price, including a Blu-ray player, but we wish the build quality was a bit better.
  • Pros: Huge display; Blu-ray player; Harmon Kardon speakers provide outstanding audio; roomy hard drive.
  • Cons: Abysmal battery life; media control keys are poorly positioned; so-so keyboard and clacky mouse buttons.

LAPTOP Magazine
4 February 2010
  • Summary: It's not a gaming powerhouse by any stretch, but those looking for a rock solid multimedia machine with punchy speakers for an affordable price will enjoy the $949 Toshiba Satellite P505-S8010. In short, shoppers desirous of a big-screen notebook that won't break the break will find a lot to like.
