>> Josh: Hi, I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor for CNET Reviews and in front of me here is the Toshiba Satellite A305-S6916 it's a 15.4 inch mainstream budget laptop with a good mix of components including a decent Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 4G of memory and a discrete 512M graphics card. It also offers extras like touch-sensitive controls and a webcam all for less than $800. This laptop features Toshiba's high-gloss fusion finish with a pattern it calls Kinetic we happen to like it but it's definitely not for everyone. What we also liked were the touch-sensitive multimedia controls, the 80211N WiFi, the above average sounding speakers and the generous port and connection options including an HDMI out, an ESADA USB combo port and the ability to charge devices through that combo port and the 3 other USB ports even while the computer is shut down. On the downside the keyboard though it's comfortable for typing is glossy and collects fingerprints, there's no integrated Bluetooth and although it's a good price it does cost more than the laptops from other vendors with similar components. In the end it's tough not to like this model since it offers up a unique design, slightly better graphics performance than the competition and a couple fun extras that make paying more for it worthwhile. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Toshiba Satellite A305-S6916. ^E00:01:35
While the $799 Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X is an affordably priced Blu-ray laptop with a next-gen Intel Core i3 processor, there are other options out there that offer better design or performance for the same money.
The budget-priced Toshiba Satellite P745-S4240 will save you some money thanks to its AMD A6 processor, with a dip in speed in exchange for some better-than-average graphics.
The Best Buy-exclusive Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990X is a heck of a solid 14-inch laptop, offering a rock-solid combination of specs and design for a reasonable price.
The Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X has a killer combination of Blu-ray, high-end graphics, and a fast processor at a price slightly north of $1,000, but poor battery life is the Achilles' heel on what would otherwise be an ideal 14-inch laptop.
The Toshiba Satellite U845W has an extrawide 21:9 screen and Harman-Kardon speakers, but no DVD or Blu-ray player. The screen is a novelty act that offers some benefits, but it's really no better than your standard laptop for most uses.
The Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024 offers a decent set of features and solid performance for home users who want a Media Center laptop without spending a lot of dough.
Though the Satellite U205 isn't the best performer, it's inexpensive and powerful enough for productivity tasks, and it has good battery life.
The Satellite A65-S126 offers some decent features at a rock-bottom cost, but you pay the price on performance and battery life.
Toshiba's Satellite A55 is a no-frills system, but it offers decent components, adequate performance, and a nice software package for a reasonable price.
The 14.1-inch Toshiba Satellite E105 is a solid all-around laptop that delivers on Best Buy's Blue Label promises: longer battery life, lightweight design, and lengthy warranty.
