The Toshiba U505 is supposed to be “light and thin” but according to reports, it’s actually not. The notebook weighs about 5.6 pounds, and is 2.8 inches thick. But performance-wise, the Toshiba U505 is just like any other Toshiba notebooks–it has top-of-the-line features.
This 13.3-inch laptop with a 1280 x 800 resolution has a 400GB hard drive, 4GB of RAM, and a 2GHz Core 2 Duo processor. Its battery can last up to four hours with the optical drive continuously engaged while it lasts more than half a day in ordinary heavy use. I’m not a big fan of Toshiba notebooks (nor its netbooks), but I am pretty impressed with the specs of this new notebook from Toshiba. It’s appearance, however, is not something to drool over.
The Toshiba U505 can be purchased for $950.
