Toshiba's Satellite M645-S4118X is a decent overall multimedia system especially for its slightly smaller dimensions. The problem is that it falls a bit short of similarly priced competition when it comes to the display or the graphics system. The company either needs to boost features to be more competitive or drop the price to better reflect its true value.

Battery life is about on average with other comparable laptops. Expect to get about 4:30-5 hours of battery life depending on your usage.

It's not going to turn heads, even in a sedate boardroom environment, but the Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X lets you get your work done quicker than most of the high-fashion alternatives. That means you can get on with your life, or if you prefer, wreak havoc on digital opponents with its exceptional gaming abilities.

In notebook design, if you don't want to go thinner and lighter, you have only one other option if you don't want to built a fatter laptop: Stay the same size and just cram more in. A wide-ranging feature set and strong performance set this $1,099 thin-and-light notebook apart. You can’t find a better all-around 14-inch laptop for this size and price.

I think the most frustrating thing about reviewing the Toshiba Satellite M645 was that I wanted it to succeed and instead came away thinking about what might have been. This isn't a bad notebook by any stretch of the imagination: it runs cool and quiet, has USB 3.0 connectivity, and sports switchable graphics in a 14-inch chassis.

There might be nothing more disappointing as a product that approaches perfection, only to be undone by one key failure. The Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X has a killer combination of Blu-ray, high-end graphics, and a fast processor at a price slightly north of $1,000, but poor battery life is the Achilles' heel on what would otherwise be an ideal 14-inch laptop.
