Pros

Core II Duo provides more-than-sufficient processing power for the average user's needs - application multitasking between word processing, spreadsheets, photo editing and gaming is fully supported

1 agrees

Integrated numeric keypad is ideal for users frequently working with numbers - many modern photo/video/audio editing programs also utilize the numeric keypad

1 agrees

Sizeable memory handling and storage capacity should last provide most users with several years of reliable computing - components allow Windows 7 64-bit OS to run very smoothly

1 agrees

Built-in Harman/Kardon speakers provide excellent stock audio outputting - audio is played back with crisp high-end and clear, punchy mids/lows

Cons

Not recommended for on-the-go, highly-portable applications - unit is close to 8 pounds in weight and approaches 16 inches in length

1 agrees

Advertised 3-hour, 20-minute battery life is fairly inaccurate - many users report a maximum of 2.5 hours with normal settings enabled

1 agrees

Gloss black finish is highly-prone to fingerprints and smudging - unit requires daily upkeep to avoid this issue

The Toshiba Satellite A505-S6981 is a mid-range, 16" notebook computer, one of several pre-built options in the A500 series. It features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor clocking in at 2.20 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, and a 400GB hard drive. Although it has slightly less hard drive space, the S6981 is an upgrade from the S6980 because it features faster DDR3 memory rather than DDR2. Both models rely on integrated graphics, and so are not designed as gaming laptops, but will provide strong performance in general computing tasks. The A505-S6981 also features a DVD burner, built-in webcam, and an HDMI port for playing HD content on a larger display. Windows 7 is pre-installed.
