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.
