The Toshiba Satellite P505-S8980 is one of six notebooks in the P500 series that was released in October 2009 alongside the Windows 7 operating system. It is in fact a major best seller and one of the top models in the series due to the addition of a Blu-ray ROM drive, 2GB of extra memory (for a total of 6GB), and the HDMI-CEC interface for transmitting high-definition content to a compatible HDTV set. Included also is an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a 500GB SATA hard-disc drive, and a DVD multi-drive. Added to that ultra-fast wired/wireless connectivity and a webcam/mic set, and the P505-S8980 can essentially handle any task put its way. Users can browse the net, download large files, conference with friends/peers, and use their notebook to watch high-definition BD discs.
