Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X

Toshiba's Satellite M645-S4118X is a decent overall multimedia system especially for its slightly smaller dimensions. The problem is that it falls a bit short of similarly priced competition when it comes to the display or the graphics system. The company either needs to boost features to be more competitive or drop the price to better reflect its true value.

Battery life is about on average with other comparable laptops. Expect to get about 4:30-5 hours of battery life depending on your usage.

In notebook design, if you don't want to go thinner and lighter, you have only one other option if you don't want to built a fatter laptop: Stay the same size and just cram more in. A wide-ranging feature set and strong performance set this $1,099 thin-and-light notebook apart. You can’t find a better all-around 14-inch laptop for this size and price.

Toshiba Satellite M645: The Steady March of Progress

I think the most frustrating thing about reviewing the Toshiba Satellite M645 was that I wanted it to succeed and instead came away thinking about what might have been. This isn't a bad notebook by any stretch of the imagination: it runs cool and quiet, has USB 3.0 connectivity, and sports switchable graphics in a 14-inch chassis.

There might be nothing more disappointing as a product that approaches perfection, only to be undone by one key failure. The Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X has a killer combination of Blu-ray, high-end graphics, and a fast processor at a price slightly north of $1,000, but poor battery life is the Achilles' heel on what would otherwise be an ideal 14-inch laptop.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M: Based on the GeForce GT 425M with slightly higher core clock speeds.

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.


2410M:

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 (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

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.

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


2.4 kg:

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