Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P745-S4320
Source: PC Mag
The Toshiba Satellite P745-S4320 is a solid laptop with a full feature set. But the Sony VAIO VPC-EG27FM/W will provide all but a USB 3.0 port, and makes up for it in battery life (8:48) and price ($90 less than the P745-S4320). If you have no real use for features like Blu-ray, USB 3.0, WiMAX, and WiDi 2.0, the Editors' Choice Dell Inspiron 14z (Core i5) might be the better option over the P745-S4320.
