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.

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.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display.
