Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite M645-S4055

Toshiba makes laptops like Volvo makes cars: sturdy, well-featured, but not always inspiring. Midsized Toshiba Satellite laptops tend to blend together in terms of design, and the Satellite M645-S4055 falls into that camp. The Toshiba Satellite M645-S4055 has a great combination of audio/video quality and fast graphics, but its short battery life compromises the equation on what's otherwise a rock-solid midrange laptop.

Toshiba claims that its new series of Satellite M645 14-inch laptops provide “do-everything performance” and are “perfect for mobile multimedia.” We can’t speak for the entire line—which starts at $729.99—but the $1,049.99 Toshiba Satellite M645-S4055 we looked at meets Toshiba’s bold claims. The Satellite M645-S4055 delivers performance power and mobile multimedia moxie in a stylish-looking laptop that costs just over a grand.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M: The Nvidia GeForce GT 330M is the successor of the GT 230M and technically just a slightly higher clocked GT 240M (but it should still maintain the power envelope of the GT 230M as the naming suggests).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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


450M: Should be similar to the Core i5-520M but without AES functions.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.
