Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X


If you're looking for svelte, sexy design, then Toshiba's $1100, 5.5-pound Satellite M645-S4118X may not be your cup of tea. If you're looking for excellent all-purpose laptop performance, playable gaming frame rates, and top-notch sound and...

Decent gaming frame rates ; Good everyday performer

Annoyingly bright power button light ; Only 10/100 ethernet

Like an unmarked highway patrol car, this all-purpose laptop's unassuming looks belie its power.

Toshiba Satellite M645 review:


Toshiba makes laptops like Volvo makes cars: sturdy, well-featured, but not always inspiring. Midsize Toshiba Satellite laptops tend to blend together in terms of design, and the Satellite M645-S4055 falls into that camp. Yet, it's also a higher-end...

Nvidia Optimus graphics; great Harman Kardon speakers.

Underwhelming battery life; no Blu-ray.

The Toshiba Satellite M645-S4055 has a great combination of audio/video quality and fast graphics, but its short battery life compromises the equation on what's otherwise a rock-solid midrange laptop.

Toshiba Satellite M645-S4055


If you're looking for a mainstream, all-purpose laptop with above-average gaming capabilities, the 6-pound Toshiba Satellite M645-S4055 is a worthy, albeit pricey, contender for your computing dollars. It has top-notch input ergonomics, snappy...

Good overall performance ; Very good frame rates in games

Branding apps need trimming ; Keyboard backlighting lacks a dimmer

Above-average sound, performance, and gaming highlight this otherwise staid midsize laptop.

Toshiba Satellite M645 Review


The Toshiba Satellite M640 and M645 offer a 14-inch laptop with solid performance and an attractive design at a modest price. As parents and students gear up for the back-to-school season, does the Satellite M640 below at the top of your shopping list?...

Attractive design ; Excellent performance ; Great keyboard

Weak screen protection ; A little expensive as configured

Toshiba Satellite M645 Review


In an era when you can get a budget Core i3 notebook for less than $600 and a mainstream system with Core i5 for $700 to $800, we've come to demand more from notebooks with price tags over $1,000. And the Satellite M645 gives you more in the form of...

Stylish textured design, Best-in-class sound quality, Strong graphics scores, Good keyboard and touchpad, Cool temperatures

Relatively short battery life, A bit pricey, Murky webcam images

Toshiba Satellite M645-S4116


Boasting lots of RAM and a new processor from Intel's second-generation Core (aka "Sandy Bridge") family, the Toshiba Satellite M645-S4116 ($879.99 direct) is not hurting for performance potential. If you're looking for capabilities that also extend to...

Strong application performance. USB 3.0 port included. Nice-sounding Harman Kardon speakers

Unimpressive battery life

With a new Sandy Bridge processor and a lot of memory, the Toshiba Satellite M645-S4116 excels for work in standard productivity applications—but its graphics prowess and battery life leave something to be desired.

Best-value laptop


The best laptops can really put a dent in your wallet, but reviewers say the Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118x is an excellent value. This 14-inch laptop packs a lot of performance into its 5.4-pound frame, and reviewers say it can handle a...

Good value, excellent components for the price, blu-ray drive

Boring design, mediocre battery life

Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X


In notebook design, if you don't want to go thinner and lighter, you have only one other option if you don't want to built a fatter laptop: Stay the same size and just cram more in. This is exactly what Toshiba did with its latest addition to the...

Outstanding audio ; Strong productivity and graphics performance ; Blu-ray drive ; USB 3.0 port

Chunky ; Cramped keyboard ; Stiff mouse buttons

A wide-ranging feature set and strong performance set this $1,099 thin-and-light notebook apart. You can’t find a better all-around 14-inch laptop for this size and price.

Toshiba Satellite M645-S4055


The Satellite M645-S4055 delivers performance power and mobile multimedia moxie in a stylish-looking laptop that costs just over a grand.

Very good application, graphics performance; high-quality speakers; backlit keyboard; HDMI, eSATA ports

Reflective screen; mushy keyboard

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how
