Toshiba L505D-ES5024 (same features as the ES5025) This is a good “All-Round” computer for business, school, travel and can even be used as a replacement for the desktop as long as there is a replicator or docking station (need the extra active USB ports). If you are looking for a strict gaming machine needing 3D and fast graphics, try another model. That aside, consider the 4 GB of RAM (room for 8GB) at 800 MHz, AMD Dual Core Processor at 2.3 GHz, 15.6” screen, eSATA USB Port, Webcam, WiFi, LAN, Modem and Windows Home Premium as OS in combination with a medium price and you find that you have good value for money. There are some negative points of course: small graphic chip on board, short battery operation (about 2 hours with standard battery), tinny loudspeakers, Norton Security test version and no HDMI output. I bought my computer on February 6, 2010 and am still happy that I bought it. By February 20th, I had added an additional battery (6600), put in a different virus scanner and upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate to obtain more functionality. My TB external HDD has also been connected for my music library. I can definitely recommend this if you are looking for a good all purpose machine with value for money, as long as you're not a gamer or CAD user.
