5 out of 5 stars   Great laptop! Great Price!
By WBpotter (Batesville, MS) June 24, 2010
Review submitted for Toshiba Satellite A505-S6020 16.0 inch Notebook PC (TBA505S6020)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Quality Display, Fast, Powerful, Quiet
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: This is my fourth laptop, my second Toshiba. I use it mostly for documents, videos, burning cds and dvds and, of course, internet access. By the way, the speakers are great![...] I spent several weeks researching all of the major brands and comparing prices for the requirements I was looking for with my 4th laptop. Already having owned a Dell, Gateway and Toshiba, I focused more on the Gateway and Toshiba, although I did look briefly into Dell and HP.Pros: This laptop had everything I was looking for and the price was unbeatable for all that I was getting. It was a snap to connect to the internet after taking it out of the box. The processor is very fast. It has everything I wanted and more.Cons: I don't really have a problem with the weight of the laptop, but the battery seems to be somewhat heavier than the batteries for the other three that I have. This was the ONLY thing I have noticed so far that I would change if I could. I would highly recommend this laptop to friends and family. Price is GREAT for what you get which makes it even better.

5 out of 5 stars   Love this Notebook
By Mike (Fairfax, VA) June 16, 2010
Review submitted for Toshiba Satellite A505-S6020 16.0 inch Notebook PC (TBA505S6020)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Lightweight, Quality Display, Fast, Comfortable Keyboard, Powerful, Quiet
Other Comments: This notebook is great, I love the size and shape of the keyboard, and it has fantastic graphics and sounds. A friend convinced me to spend the extra money and go with the i5 and it was totally worth it. I have a second monitor on my desk at work and can stream video on it, while working on the web and in multiple applications on my main screen without slowing down or overheating.
