Toshiba Satellite P845t-102 review

 

The top dog in Toshiba's P845 series offers a 14-inchtouchscreen, DVD drive, silvery good looks and the latest Windows 8operating system -- but is that enough?

Sleek textured look, large hard drive, loud speakers

On the slow side, kinda chunky

The Toshiba Satellite P845 is a solid enough workhorseand a decent introduction to Windows 8 but it's on the chunky sideand doesn't really do enough to distinguish itself at thisprice.

REVIEW: Toshiba Satellite P845t-101 Windows 8 touchscreen laptop

 

The Windows 8 revolution is in full swing, with every laptop manufacturer worth their salt putting out touchscreen-packing laptops. Toshiba's Satellite P845t-101 is one of the first to hit the market, offering a 10-point touchscreen display alongside a...

It's a solid start to touchscreen Windows 8 laptops for Toshiba then. The Satellite P845t-101 handles touch input with ease, and you'll find yourself perhaps surprised at how often you'll be swiping away at the screen. The build of the laptop itself...

Toshiba Satellite P845T-108 PSPJ5E-00Y00NEN

 

Can play HD videos smoothly and the keypad lights up so that you can see in the dark if you are lying in bed or something like that.

Sometimes the touchscreen feature can be a little slow and doesn't do what you touch instantly. Also if you just move the laptop slightly you get the message saying "vibration detected" which can be quite annoying.

The screen is very responsive. Much better Windows 8 experience with the touch-screen. Good very performance with the memory demanding software.

Heavier than other ultrabook laptops but it has a DVD player and that logically make it heavier.
