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.

14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.3 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
