by Jeffrey J. Martinez

Consumers are in store for a treat with Toshiba’s stylish series of satellite notebook computers.  In particular, the satellite A205-S4577 model provides users with great features including 802.11n wireless technology, webcam capabilities, and superb graphics and sound.  This laptop’s impressive qualities provide for an enhanced and pleasant computing experience.

Performance and Speed

The Satellite A205-S4577 model offers Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology, which includes an 802.11n specification.  In essence, it delivers greater bandwidth and transfer speeds up to five times faster than its standard predecessors.  In using the laptop, I found that the boot-up process was fairly routine and expended no more than 40 seconds.  I did not experience any type of lag as I navigated back and forth between various menus, windows, and internet websites.  To connect to the internet, I employed the laptop’s conveniently integrated Wi-Fi wireless capability, which enabled me to watch several videos at a time without the slightest delay. 

Memory, Storage and Drives

A 160 GB hard drive ensures plentiful storage space for content such as MP3s, videos and photos.  The laptop comes configured with 1024 MB PC2-DDR SDRAM.  Maximum capacity is also a considerable 4096MB, which I find to be a good bargain in light of the price for the product.  In addition, the Satellite A205-S4577 comes with a DVD SuperMulti optical removable/rewritable drive that supports Label flash.  With Label flash, users can burn high-quality text and images onto special Labelflash DVD-R disks for professional-looking labels.  The drive can read and write in all major format types.
