Background and Identification ¶ 

The Toshiba Satellite L305-S5946 was released in the United States in 2009. It was available only at Costco Wholesale stores and is part of an ongoing series of over 50 laptop and ultrabook models.

The L305 comes pre-installed with Windows Vista and a trial version of Microsoft Office 2007.

Physically, the L305 is most distinguishable by its glossy black case and Onyx Blue lid. It weighs 5.49 lbs and has a 15.4-inch widescreen LCD display.

Since 2009, several new Satellite-series models have been released, including the U845W ultrabook, now with Windows 8 OS standard.

All Toshiba products come with the company-standard one-year warranty from the original date of sale.

You can find the laptop's model and serial numbers on the manufacturer sticker found on the right-hand side of the base of the laptop; this should be sufficient infromation to identify your model.
