Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018 review: Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018

Annual power consumption cost

$5.08 

The Satellite L505 uses a standard six-cell battery and turned in a decent score of 3 hoursand 11 minutes on CNET Labs' demanding video playback battery drain test. It trailed only the Asus K60I, which was helped by its energy-efficient LED-backlit LCD. That's more than decent for a midsize budget-priced laptop.

Toshiba backs the Satellite L505-ES5018 with an industry-standard one-year warranty. Support is accessible 24-7 via a toll-free phone line, an online knowledge base, and a Web site with driver downloads.
