Toshiba Satellite U505-S2970

CNET
24 May 2010
  • Summary: The Toshiba Satellite U505-S2870 is rather tank-like for a 13.3-inch thin-and-light. We'd be more willing to tote it around if its heavy-armor feel extended to the flimsy keyboard.
  • Pros: Rugged and well built; textured plastic is a pleasing departure from glossy surfaces found on majority of laptops; slot-loading DVD drive.
  • Cons: A bit portly for a thin-and-light; keyboard feels flimsy; touch pad is overly sensitive.

Toshiba Satellite U505-S2010 Review

Digitaltrends
6 April 2010
  • Excerpt: From cell phones to slate PCs like the Apple iPad , and even all-in-one PCs , touch is all the rage. There’s no denying the intuitive nature of simply tapping a finger on what you want, but can you make any device better simply by slapping a touch screen on it? Toshiba’s U505 S2010 suggests not.
  • Pros: Powerful Intel Core i5 CPU, Handles 1080p HD video, Plentiful ports, Slot-loading optical drive, Comfortable LED-lit keyboard and trackpad
  • Cons: Very poor, dim screen (on touch models), Touch screen lacks utility, Thick and heavy for size class, Some preinstalled bloatware, nags, Very little gaming prowess, Three-hour battery life

Toshiba Satellite U505-S2010

Digitaltrends

  • Conclusion: Toshiba’s Satellite U505 series notebooks actually manage to cram quite a bit of power into a 13.3-inch form factor, even if they do lose both some portability and battery life in the process. With models between $690 and $1,100, you’ll also find plenty of wiggle room to shed the features you don’t need – like the touch screen.

Toshiba Satellite U505 (S2980-T) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
2 November 2009
  • Summary: On the whole, the Toshiba U505-S2980-T is a pretty good Windows 7 touch notebook--and it offers a healthy dose of style along with plenty of muscle. However, at $1,049, this laptop is more expensive than a non-touchscreen version with better graphics. That's quite a lot to pay for a feature that results in a heavier chassis and a display that's less crisp.
