All said, the Toshiba Satellite P845-S4200 is a solid choice for users looking to save a buck without having to settle for a bare-bones system. That said, the Acer Aspire V5-571-6869 offers similar performance for a significantly lower price, and for that reason it continues to reign as our Editors' Choice for budget laptops. Still, the Satellite P854-S4200 remains a good choice, and its handsomely designed chassis, solid battery life, and low price all go a long way toward disproving the notion that systems in this price range must necessarily compromise performance or design.

The Toshiba Satellite P845-S4200 is a 14-inch laptop that features a solid aluminum design, a third-gen Intel CPU and a large 750GB hard drive. This combination offers really great performance but the keyboard could have a better design.

Toshiba Satellite P845-S4200 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
For just $599, the Toshiba Satellite P845-S4200 offers an attractive overall package, both in terms of looks and performance. It holds up well against pricier Ultrabooks (the HP Envy 4-1030US is currently $749 and a similarly configured Dell Inspiron 14z is $749), while delivering very loud speakers and plenty of space for all of your files. We've used better keyboards, but overall the P845 is quite a bargain.

Affordable Touchscreen. Throwing in a touch-enabled display on an otherwise standard notebook is becoming common due in part to the touch-focused nature of Windows 8. Is this inexpensive 14-inch touchscreen Satellite a blast to use?
Toshiba Satellite P845T – review
Source: Gadgetmix English
The Satellite P845T is already on sale. OK, so file transfer is not lightning quick, and dedicated typists would probably complain about the lack of solid feedback from the keys. But the touchscreen more than makes up for it. Intel’s HD4000 means current titles are only playable at low settings, but heck, touchscreen Windows 8 laptop for $700 – anyone looking for an inexpensive mid-ranger needs a good excuse not to opt for the P845T.

Overall, other than its weight and perhaps the touchy touch pad, there are no deal-breakers with the Satellite P845T-S4310. On the flip side, apart from its excellent audio and respectable battery life, there are no must-haves here, either. Call the S4310 what it is: an affordable mainstream laptop for users who want both a touch screen for Windows 8 and an optical drive for CD and DVD enjoyment.

With its decent performance and feature set, the Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 is a good option for anyone on the market for a touch-enabled Windows 8 mainstream laptop. That said, though, it's not nearly as good a value as the Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51, which delivers similar specs, a touch screen, and a slim ultrabook form-factor while costing $200 less. Moreover, it can't unseat the Lenovo IdeaPad Y480 from its reign as our Editors' Choice for mainstream laptop since the latter sports a beefier processor, discrete graphics, and an exponentially more comfortable keyboard, and all for less than $100 more. Still, the Satellite P845T-S4310 is worth checking out for users who prefer a combination of touch functionality and solid performance.

Toshiba Satellite P845t Review: A Touchscreen is Essential for Windows 8
Source: Notebooks.com English
The Toshiba Satellite P845t-S4310 faces stiff competition from the IdeaPad Yoga 13 and a crop of new Windows 8 notebooks, but by delivering a responsive touch screen, the optical drive many consuemrs still want and great audio at $250 less than the cheapest Ultrabook Convertible the Satellite P845t is a good value for many home users.

60% Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 review: a little to bulky for the price
Source: PC World English
The Toshiba Satellite P845t-S4310 is a pretty nice computer, with nice speakers, a useable touchscreen, and some expensive-looking design elements. But I can’t help but think that a computer this bulky and under-performing needs a lower price-point. For just a couple hundred more you can pick up an Ultrabook that probably performs better, has the same processor, and weighs less. So unless you’re really on a tight budget, I’d look for something a bit sleeker.

As with the original Satellite P845, the $799.99 Toshiba Satellite P845t-S4310 has an attractive chassis and excellent audio, but now boots in a flash and has a responsive touchscreen. However, this notebook's below-average battery life and finicky touchpad detract from what is otherwise a good value.

The Toshiba Satellite P845T is an affordable 14-inch laptop with a touchscreen that’s unashamed of its girth, with excellent connectivity and an optical drive. Overall, the Satellite P845T is an odd mix of premium and budget; with metal and glass used in its chassis, amazing speakers, and a backlit keyboard on the one hand joining an average screen, sub-par typing experience, slow hard drive and mediocre build quality on the other. If you want all the features it offers it’s a decent buy, but for most there will be better alternatives.

Toshiba's Satellite P840 is a good all-rounder, but it's let down by a very reflective screen, a questionable screen build quality, the lack of solid state storage, and the lack of a dual-band Wi-Fi adapter. For a premium model, these issues are hard to overlook. The plus side is that you get a good configuration that offers plenty of performance for office apps and multimedia, and its keyboard feels nice to type on.

Mobility clearly isn't a strong point with the Toshiba Satellite P845t-101, and the touchscreen is likely to get only occasional use. However, the Satellite performs well enough for undemanding users and is a good choice for anyone that wants a versatile laptop for use at home or in the office.

The Toshiba Satellite P845T has a sound set of hardware features while also offering good levels of processing power and decent audio. It can even cope with a respectable selection of games. Unfortunately, this laptop is let down by its low-grade TN screen and a battery life that's no match for many of the ultrabooks selling at similar prices.

Toshiba reviews


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

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M:

Multiple models based on various chips of the Fermi generation. Specifically, the GT 630M exists in GF108/GF106/GF116 variants, but are all essentially renamed GeForce GT 540M or 555M GPUs. A 28nm GF117 variant exists as well with reduced power consumption.

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


Intel Core i5:

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

Intel Core i3:

3217U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.8 GHz (no Turbo Boost) and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

3537U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 2.0 - 3.1 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1200 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.


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.


1.9 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.16 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


67.8%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
