Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L745D-S4220
The Satellite L745D might seem low-spec and overpriced. But maybe you shouldn’t compare it with other similarly-priced notebooks. Compare it with other Toshibas. Not be the slimmest laptop on the market, or the fastest. But the RAM is upgradeable to 8GB, which will make a big difference.

Normally, the holiday "doorbuster" special tends to be a $300-range machine, with a 15-inch screen, a low-end chassis, and an underpowered processor. Budget shoppers had best look elsewhere than the 14-inch Toshiba Satellite L745D-S4220. A low-end processor and middling speed aren't worth the $499 asking price, and we've seen many laptops in the same range that offer more.
