Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P745-S4217

70% Toshiba Satellite P745-S4217
Source: PC Mag English
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.

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.

2.4 kg:

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