Toshiba’s new Portege R705-P35 is a perfect laptop, in performance, size and money. Its one of the best laptops of this year. The configuration of the laptop is on the higher end side, and its a 13 inch laptop, making it really good for portability, and not very small for making it a tablet and not a business notebook.
The laptop runs on an Intel Core i3 processor, with a clock speed of 2.26 GHz, which is actually a very good speed. This processor makes perfect sense when you want high performance for your everyday work, but dont want a super high config gaming machine. It has a 4 gig DDR3 RAM, which again, is more than enough. The two blend well in each other to give the perfect performance.
The 500 GB hard disk lets you store anything you want, let it be movies, music, your office files, or just anything else. When portability comes into picture, more hard disk space is always good. And the chipset used here is an Intel HM55. Now this makes no sense for most users, but its always good to know what technology you are using.
The laptop has an Intel GMA HD graphics card integrated into the motherboard. But the sad thing is there is no dedicated graphics RAM on this machine. This is a big let down when the other specs are taken into account. The shared or the built in graphics cards dont give the optimum or the minimum required performance.
You will get Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed on this computer. This OS and no dedicated graphics memory!! Anyway, its 64-bit and is one of the most powerful OSes today. Looking at these config, we can easily say that its a good machine. Now, coming to the price, you can buy Toshiba Portege R705-P35 for $799.99. This is a very good package for the specs and the performance it offers.
