Pros As long as it's running on high power: pretty fast, good for multitasking
Cons When running on low power, Windows Explorer stops responding; no microphone (or camera); HEATING PROBLEMS, casing material absorbs fingerprints
Summary My biggest problem with it is the heating problems. It started overheating when I first got it. Sometimes it will go for months without overheating, but after that nothing will stop it. I've tried compressed air, manually wiping the fan, but it will overheat even on a perfectly flat table.
I also experience a lot of problems when it's running on low power. Window Explorer constantly stops responding. As long as it's running on high power, though, it works great.
The material the laptop is made of also gets dirty really easily. It's a real pain to constantly have to wipe it.
Despite these criticisms, it actually is a good laptop for the price, though. As long as you run on high power, it is very fast. The overheating is annoying, but it tends to come and go in periods. There are better laptops, but this one is still pretty good. I tend to run a lot of programs at once and keep a large number of tabs open. I don't know about gaming because I don't do that much.
Pros Long lasting medium hard drive space.
long battery life
lots of outlets
Cons No webcam or mike
can be really slow at times (like it says not responding)
includes a bunch of norton stuff that takes up so much space
Pros reliable, portable, lots of ram cheep
Cons no blue tooth, no camera or mic. but i really wouldn't use the cam much
biggest con is the no blue tooth because to hook a wireless mouse up i have to have an usb adapter
Pros Superaffordable that cost arround Rp.7.000.000.- / US$ 500.-
2.0Ghz AMD TURION 64 X2 (Good enough for everyday Home use)
250GB HDD Big enough for storing everything.
128 Dedicated ATI Radeon X1250
Bright and Best Screen in the Market for it price!
Cons Just 2GB DDR2 wont be enough for Vista!
Summary I guess if you are looking for budget notebook arround Rp.7.000.000.- that already have original Vista Home, with dedicated 128mb videocard, and the fastest for it price... you should consider this L305D - S5895.
So Affordable So Adorable!
ps: and compare to my older Toshiba Satellite M30X 129 (Centrino M 1.7Ghz)... This is much Faster and Better in Performance!
Pros I like it has lots of ram and cpu power. The screen is great, the sound is okay. The touchpad is nice.
Cons After only 1 month of light use the power plug is already loose and wobbly. The DVD drive opens too easily (brush your hand by it and it slides open). The drive also is situated right by the power cord making awkward opening.
Summary It came with Vista and a bunch of bloat like Norton which slowed the laptop down a lot. Best Buy wanted $30 to REMOVE all this stuff (they call it optimization). Vista was broken out of the box and Windows Explorer would frequently not respond. The DVD drive is glitchy. I expect some possibly problems with this machine since it looks like Toshiba discontinued it really quickly. It was only $500 at Best Buy which was a good deal for the Cpu power and RAM and hard drive space. I gave this 2.5 stars because it seems like it is going to be another one of those fabulous computers that is designed to be obsolete in a few years and break after 4 or 5 years. However, it mostly works and does have everything you need to do basic surfing and watching and writing these days.
