The L series of Toshiba Satellite laptops were Toshiba's mainstream consumer line of Satellite laptops and were marketed towards students.[1] The L305 specifically was released in 2009.

Collection Specifics

My specific Satellite L305 is the S5944 model which has a dual core, 2008 Intel Pentium with 2 GB of DDR2 memory and Intel integrated graphics. I bought this laptop for $20 from a Deseret Industries thrift store in Marana, AZ on March 18, 2023.

Operating System

This specific laptop came with Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit. When I bought the laptop, the original operating system installation was on the drive, so I used Toshiba's built-in recovery DVD creator to make recovery discs for it. I immediately swapped out the original hard drive for a solid-state drive for improved performance and reinstalled the factory OS installation with the recovery discs that were created.


The only upgrade I've done to this laptop is upgrading the original hard drive to a 240 GB Crucial BX500 SSD.
