Toshiba Satellite L745-S4130

 

The Toshiba Satellite L745-S4130 has a 14-inch display that is backed up with good performance thanks to the Intel Core i3 CPU and 4GB of RAM. While it is slightly thicker than some other 14-inch laptops, it has a really great-looking display that...

Good for the price

 

If you are looking for a cheap laptop, easy to move around, and still has a good price, you will not regret it.

This laptop is small and light. But it is not an ultrabook ; I am a graduate student, and i am using it in my office. I do not run games and movies, but for normal tasks is the laptop I wanted. I payed this $350 and at this time there was nothing with...

The sound is not great, but I do not need sound in my office ; A lot programs from toshiba to uninstall

A great laptop at a great price

 

The price I paid for this at Newegg is about one-third of what I paid for a very good but not high-end Toshiba in 2006. This makes the deal for this very usable laptop much sweeter.

I've owned several Toshiba laptops over the past 20 years, and I've come to think of Toshiba as a leader in that market. So I had reasonably high expectations when I bought this one, and I haven not been disappointed. I especially like the 14" screen,...

Really only one, that it has USB 2 ports, but not USB 3. Not a defect, of course, I knew it didn't have that, but it's something I could see being very handy as time goes on. Since this is not my main computer, it will be a smaller issue

Real nice!

 

Ignoring keyboard cheapness, it really is nice laptop.

It's really small and light, you can take it anywhere. It has face recognition which is very cool. It's pretty fast for this much money. Also battery is good. All in all for $450 it's a great deal and I'm glad that I brought it

Keyboard looks cheap and feels cheap too, we'll see how long it's gonna last. That's the only con for me, but I'm not disappointed
