Toshiba Satellite P305 review: Toshiba Satellite P305

Review Sections

The Satellite P305 ran for 1 hours and 23 minutes on our battery drain test. This isn't great, even for a desktop replacement--although to be fair, systems such as this are not expected to spend much time away from an outlet. HP's 17-inch Pavilion dv9700t managed 2 hours and 36 minutes, but it's a more expensive system.

Toshiba includes an industry-standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty with the system. Upgrading to a three-year plan will cost an extra $149. Support is accessible through a 24-7 toll-free phone line and an online knowledge base and driver downloads.
