re: It's Okay

TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite AMD Turion II Dual-Core M520 (2.3GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4200 18.4" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit P505D-S8000

Pros: To the guy who wrote it's okay if the performance is slow its because you left all the factory junk on it. Take and format the computer and put on only what you need and this laptop flys. I only had this lapop for 20 minutes and i started tor erase and re-install what I wanted. i put windows 7 ultimate one and it really works good. then i installd the drivers from toshiba for the side buttons and eco pack. then whatever software that I wanted.

Cons: None after the format. Amazing how good video playback is along with games.

Overall Review: Deffently needs formating when you get it. The factory software and setting are set too low.

Pros: I have never been a big Intel fan but this i7 works great. Battery last a good while.

Cons: Of course it comes preloaded with junk software.

Great Laptop

TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite AMD Turion II Dual-Core M520 (2.3GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4200 18.4" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit P505D-S8000
TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite AMD Turion II Dual-Core M520 (2.3GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4200 18.4" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit P505D-S8000

Pros: Amd Turion II 64 bit, 18.4" screen. What laptop comes with that big of a screen these days. This thing is like a Cadillac of Toshiba laptops. Has great response time for actions. 4gb of memory up to 8gb that's pretty good. Runs good with Windows 7 home premium even better with 7 ultimate. I wiped mine clean the day I got it and put Windows 7 Ultimate on.

Cons: Finding a case big enough to carry it around with you. I found one on A m a z o n for $26.99 every where else they had only one or were out of stock, or did not carry them that big.

Overall Review: Longer battery life would be nice, but the one it comes with gives you at least 3 hours on balanced settings.
