Toshiba Satellite S955 Review


This laptop is a good value if it can be found for $600 but should be crossed off your list as long as it's priced higher than that.

The Toshiba S955, like most inexpensive Windows laptops, has its fair share of weaknesses. The display is adequate at best, the keyboard is lacking, and the build quality is mixed. All of these downsides are common of laptops in the segment, but some...

Toshiba Satellite U845W review: an Ultrabook with a screen size all its own


More Info Toshiba outs Satellite U845W Ultrabook with 14.4-inch, 21:9 display (updated: $999 and up in the US) The Ultrabooks of Computex 2012

Powerful speakers ; Attractive design ; Decent battery life for a 14-inch laptop

Uncomfortable keyboard ; Flaky trackpad ; Display not compatible with most media

The U845W Ultrabook is the first laptop with a 21:9 display, but ultimately its odd, outsized dimensions are more of a nuisance than a boon.

Toshiba Satellite U845T review


There's a reasonable chance you'll end up hearing about the Toshiba Satellite U845T on a semiregular basis from us. That's because, at $799 for a 14-inch laptop that's ultrabook-thin, with a touch screen, Intel Core i5 processor, and 128GB solid-state...

The Toshiba Satellite U845T is thin, with a decent brushed-aluminum body, a 128GB SSD, and better performance and battery life than the competition.

The keyboard has squeezed-down keys, a small spacebar, and some flex under heavy typing. The low screen resolution feels dated in a midsize laptop.

While it's not going to dazzle anyone, the Toshiba Satellite U845T is a great example of exactly how much laptop $799 should buy in 2013.

Toshiba Satellite U945-S4390


The Toshiba Satellite U945-S4390 is a reasonably priced Windows 8-equipped ultrabook with some nifty features to boot.

Reasonably priced. Good performance. WiDi.

Bloatware. Uncomfortable to type on. So-so battery life.

Toshiba Satellite U845W-S430 review: No touch, but a very long screen


The wide-screen Toshiba Satellite U845W-S430 has an extra-long, higher-resolution screen, Harman Kardon speakers that pack a punch, and an attractive, compact design with plenty of ports.

The keyboard and touch pad are uncomfortable, the wide screen isn't a perfect marriage with Windows 8, and the screen doesn’t always play nicely with all streaming video content.

Toshiba's experimental extra-wide-screen ultrabook gets a Windows 8 software upgrade, but it turns the Toshiba Satellite U845W into a computer imperfectly matched for what Windows 8 has to offer.

The Toshiba Satellite U945: Budget Windows 8 ultrabook gets even more budgety


Trimming down and shedding metal for plastic, the U945's a modest redesign of the existing Satellite U845; but if it makes for a more affordable laptop, then it's a good move.

Toshiba Satellite A665D-S6085


The Toshiba Satellite A665D-S6085 makes a great entertainment laptop with its amazing sounding audio, gorgeous-looking display, and Blu-ray drive.

Harmon Kardon speakers dish out delicious-sounding audio. Great-looking display. Blu-ray drive.

Disappointing battery life. Glossy display. Display doesn?t support 1080p playback.

Review Toshiba Satellite S955D-S5150 Notebook


Slimmer, lighter, better? Toshiba has placed their notebooks on a

Thin and lightweight; Good Touchpad; Includes an optical drive; Low noise and heat

Flimsy construction; Weak CPU performance; Restrictive battery life; Frustrating keyboard; Glossy, unremarkable TN display

Where to go, then, if you’re searching for an ultraportable, affordable 15-inch notebook? Options remain unfortunately thin, with HP’s Sleekbook 15z and Lenovo’s IdeaPad S405 receiving mixed reviews as well. It might be worth saving up a bit more and...

Review Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 Notebook


Affordable Touchscreen. Throwing in a touch-enabled display on an otherwise standard notebook is becoming common due in part to the touch-focused nature of Windows 8. Is this inexpensive 14-inch touchscreen Satellite a blast to use? ...

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...

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

Toshiba Satellite C75D


The Toshiba Satellite C75D is an affordable, big screen laptop. It's ideal for those with tight budgets who want a 17" and a big keyboard, but don't need heavy duty computing power. The C75D runs on a 1.5GHz quad core AMD A4-5000M Jaguar APU (APU is...

Big screen, optical drive and a roomy keyboard for a low price

Not a fast machine, display contrast, viewing angles and colors are poor
