(Page 3 of 4 )
As part of the Blue Label program from Best Buy, the 14-inch Toshiba Satellite E205-S1904 is an exclusive offering from the retail store. It presents shoppers with good performance for mainstream tasks and a strong overall feature set that includes some exciting new technology.
At $899.99, it is reasonably priced as well. The E205-S1904 comes with a lengthy two-year warranty, as well as 30 days of Geek Squad service from Best Buy. Additional tech support is available via Toshiba's website or their 24-7 toll-free line.
The Satellite E205-S1904's fixed configuration is powered by a 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5-430M processor with 3 MB of L2 cache. This newer processor released in 2010 offers performance improvements over Core 2 Duo processors found in previous versions of the Satellite. You can expect plenty of speed as well as the ability to handle multitasking without a problem from the Core i5-430M.
To further help with multitasking and running several applications at once, you also get 4 MB of DDR3 SDRAM, which can be upgraded all the way up to 8 GB. The E205-S1904 is a great pick for those looking for an everyday laptop to perform common tasks like Internet browsing, checking email, composing documents, watching movies, listening to music, and more.
Unfortunately, the laptop does not have any dedicated gaming graphics, so video game fans will not be able to use it to play mainstream video game titles. Graphics are instead supported by an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD card. Plenty of storage space is available on the E205-S1904, thanks to its 500 GB hard drive. Battery life is quite good for a mainstream laptop, as you should see around six hours of usage on a full charge using the laptop's included six-cell battery.
For the operating system, Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit is pre-installed.
Beyond its core components, the Satellite E205-S1904 offers many more attractive features, highlighted by the inclusion of Intel's Wireless Display technology, also known as WiDi. The E205-S1904 is one of the first laptops to employ this technology. WiDi gives users a wireless method of streaming video and other content from their laptops directly to a high definition television.
Using the included Netgear adapter that acts as a bridge, connecting to an HDTV for improved viewing of content from your laptop is possible without the need for a bunch of messy wires. WiDi streams sound in addition to video. Unfortunately, it does not currently work with DVDs or Blu-ray discs.
Other features include 802.11n Wi-Fi so you can connect to the fastest available wireless networks. A slot-loading DVD drive is included so you can listen to and burn CDs as well as watch your favorite DVDs. The drive supports Labelflash technology that lets you create custom labels for CDs when you burn them.
An integrated web cam and microphone are included so you can keep in touch with friends via video chat through programs like Skype. There's also a multi-format media reader that allows for quick transfers with digital devices such as cameras. The reader supports formats such as SD cards, Memory Sticks, and more.
