For a budget model, the Toshiba L745D-S4220GR has sufficient power. The screen is also above average for this class of notebook. Battery life is sufficient to last through classes of 3 and a half hours. And the computer stays cool and quiet when operating. Unfortunately, the touchpad is so problematic that I cannot recommend using the notebook without an external mouse, and the keyboard would have to remain covered in order to avoid the need to clean it constantly. While the notebook is capable of performing well, its usability leaves something to be desired.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

50%: This rating is bad and very rare. There are only a few models that are rated so poorly. If the source is reputable, then a purchase is probably not advisable.
