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": 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.


2.4 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.
