Review Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 Notebook

 

Affordable Touchscreen. Throwing in a touch-enabled display on an

Attractive aluminium case; Good CPU performance; Sensitive touchscreen; Large touchpad; Decent speakers; HDD and RAM easily accessible

Lid sensitive to pressure; Keyboard with soft touch and short travel; Rather slow system performance; Graphics performance reduced while running on battery; Some ports not ideally placed for right-handers; Glossy screen should be brighter for outdoor...

At $700, the P845T is one of the least expensive touch-enabled Windows 8 notebooks currently available.

Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310

 

With its decent performance and admirable feature set, the Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 is a good option for anyone on the market for a touch-enabled Windows 8 laptop.

Ten-point touch screen. WiDi. Built-in optical drive. Decent performer.

Shallow travel on keyboard. Keyboard not backlit. Bloatware.

Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 review: a little too bulky for the price

 

This laptop has nice speakers, a usable touchscreen, and some expensive-looking design elements. But it's just too bulky and underwhelming (performance-wise) to justify the almost-$1000 price tag.

Decent video and audio encoding performance ; Touchscreen is smooth and accurate

Overall performance isn't so hot ; Display looks a little washed out

Toshiba Satellite P845t-S4310

 

When we reviewed the Toshiba Satellite P845, we praised its attractive design, loud speakers and low $599 price. With the release of Windows 8, Toshiba has taken that system and added a touchscreen and Microsoft's new operating system. The result is...

Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 Review and Ratings

 

Touch-screen bargain hunters may want to check out the Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310, but we'd like it more if not for the presence of 14-inch ultrabooks that offer the same performance, similar features, and greater portability.

Attractive aluminum styling ; Stellar audio output from Harman Kardon speakers ; Long-running battery

Big and bulky compared to 14-inch ultrabooks ; Skittish touchpad ; Keyboard not backlit

The Toshiba finished on a high note in our battery rundown test. It played back our video test file for almost five and a half hours, placing second only to the HP Envy TouchSmart ultrabook:

Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 review

 

Toshiba's Satellite P845t-S4310 is an interesting mix of budget laptop and all-purpose machine. It's bigger and bulkier than most of the sleek machines on the market today, and its performance leaves quite a bit to be desired – even within its class....

The Toshiba Satellite P845t-S4310 is a pretty nice computer, with nice speakers, a useable touchscreen, and some expensive-looking design elements. But I cant help but think that a computer this bulky and under-performing needs a lower price-point. For...
