The Toshiba Satellite P745-S4217 is fine on the plug if you want to use it for serving up Blu-ray movies, definitely one of the best uses for this machine. Just because it doesn't game—or chug along on battery—as well as our Asus U41JF-A1 Editors' Choice, doesn't mean it's not worthy of your attention if you want a portable system that you can be assured will do a variety of things well.

Underneath the seemingly predictable veneer of the 14-inch Toshiba Satellite P745D-S4240 are two new stories, albeit ones that might not interest the average person much.The budget-priced Toshiba Satellite P745D-S4240 will save you some money thanks to its AMD A6 processor, with a dip in speed in exchange for some better-than-average graphics.

The Toshiba Satellite P745-S4320 is a solid laptop with a full feature set. But the Sony VAIO VPC-EG27FM/W will provide all but a USB 3.0 port, and makes up for it in battery life (8:48) and price ($90 less than the P745-S4320). If you have no real use for features like Blu-ray, USB 3.0, WiMAX, and WiDi 2.0, the Editors' Choice Dell Inspiron 14z (Core i5) might be the better option over the P745-S4320.
