I had the pleasure to shop for a suitable replacement notebook computer to replace an aging and battle scarred brick of a laptop. It still functions and I may use it as a trouble shooting tool in the field from time to time.

A major chain offered a very reasonable price on the Satellite A505-69803.
The unit is equipped with:
Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 2.2 Ghz Dual Core processor
4G of DDR3 SDRAM
8X DVD burner
3 USB 2.0 ports
500G Toshiba Hard Disk
7.5 HOUR battery life
HDMI Video Port
Though this unit was a bit more expensive than my prospective budget, the added features are well worth the modest increase in cost. $599 on sale.
Recently Consumer Reports magazine rated the A505-6980 as it’s third choice overall, first in the 16″ laptop category. Another Toshiba Satellite was named the best buy.
I highly recommend this particular unit to those seeking advice on their laptop purchases.
