The Toshiba Satellite L745-S4210 is compact, battery efficient, and priced so that parents have enough money left over for other school-related necessities. Students, however, will find that design appeal is lacking in this laptop, as the frame is too thick and clunky compared with top-tier budget laptops, like the HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl and HP Pavilion dm4-1265dx, both Editors' Choices.

Toshiba L745D notebook – review
Source: Gadgetmix English
The Satellite L745D might seem low-spec and overpriced. But maybe you shouldn’t compare it with other similarly-priced notebooks. Compare it with other Toshibas. Not be the slimmest laptop on the market, or the fastest. But the RAM is upgradeable to 8GB, which will make a big difference.

Normally, the holiday "doorbuster" special tends to be a $300-range machine, with a 15-inch screen, a low-end chassis, and an underpowered processor. Budget shoppers had best look elsewhere than the 14-inch Toshiba Satellite L745D-S4220. A low-end processor and middling speed aren't worth the $499 asking price, and we've seen many laptops in the same range that offer more.

An affordable laptop for school, but be prepared to upgrade the hard drive if you want decent performance.

The Toshiba Satellite L745D-S4220RD may not impress you with its performance, but its $500 price tag make it well worth your consideration. The Dell Inspiron i14RN4110-8073DBK sells for only $20 more, and offers a Core i5 processor and all the improved performance that comes with it. Of course, if you can afford an extra $150, check out Editors' Choice Asus U56E-BBL5, which offers a lot more power and features.

We perceive two kinds of budget-laptop shoppers: those who want the best value, and those who want to spend as little as possible, no matter what. This budget laptop, with a nice 14-inch LCD, is fine for light browsing and computing. It's only a good choice, though, if speed and portability aren't top concerns, and price is.

For a budget model, the Toshiba L745D-S4220GR has sufficient power. The screen is also above average for this class of notebook. Battery life is sufficient to last through classes of 3 and a half hours. And the computer stays cool and quiet when operating. Unfortunately, the touchpad is so problematic that I cannot recommend using the notebook without an external mouse, and the keyboard would have to remain covered in order to avoid the need to clean it constantly. While the notebook is capable of performing well, its usability leaves something to be desired.

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 makes it stand out from the rest.

Toshiba knows how to make a good budget laptop. For $569, the Toshiba Satellite L745-S4130 offers an attractive design, a bright 14-inch display and enough power to perform everyday tasks and play casual games. However, for $20 less, consumers can purchase the Dell Inspiron 14z, which has a smaller hard drive but a sleeker aluminum chassis and longer battery life. But if you happen to come across the Toshiba Satellite L745-S4130, it's a strong value.

Toshiba reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

AMD Radeon HD 6310: Integrated graphics card in the Zacate netbook processors (e.g. E-350 and E-240) featuring an UVD3 video decoder and no dedicated memory.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i3:

2310M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.1 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).

2350M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card.

AMD E-Series:

E-350: Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards. The processor is on a level with Celeron SU2300 (1.2 GHz) and the GPU part about as fast as an Nvidia ION (2).


14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.3 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.3 kg:


63%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
