Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310

Affordable Touchscreen. Throwing in a touch-enabled display on an otherwise standard notebook is becoming common due in part to the touch-focused nature of Windows 8. Is this inexpensive 14-inch touchscreen Satellite a blast to use?
Toshiba Satellite P845T – review
Source: Gadgetmix English
The Satellite P845T is already on sale. OK, so file transfer is not lightning quick, and dedicated typists would probably complain about the lack of solid feedback from the keys. But the touchscreen more than makes up for it. Intel’s HD4000 means current titles are only playable at low settings, but heck, touchscreen Windows 8 laptop for $700 – anyone looking for an inexpensive mid-ranger needs a good excuse not to opt for the P845T.

Overall, other than its weight and perhaps the touchy touch pad, there are no deal-breakers with the Satellite P845T-S4310. On the flip side, apart from its excellent audio and respectable battery life, there are no must-haves here, either. Call the S4310 what it is: an affordable mainstream laptop for users who want both a touch screen for Windows 8 and an optical drive for CD and DVD enjoyment.

With its decent performance and feature set, the Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 is a good option for anyone on the market for a touch-enabled Windows 8 mainstream laptop. That said, though, it's not nearly as good a value as the Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51, which delivers similar specs, a touch screen, and a slim ultrabook form-factor while costing $200 less. Moreover, it can't unseat the Lenovo IdeaPad Y480 from its reign as our Editors' Choice for mainstream laptop since the latter sports a beefier processor, discrete graphics, and an exponentially more comfortable keyboard, and all for less than $100 more. Still, the Satellite P845T-S4310 is worth checking out for users who prefer a combination of touch functionality and solid performance.

Toshiba Satellite P845t Review: A Touchscreen is Essential for Windows 8
Source: English
The Toshiba Satellite P845t-S4310 faces stiff competition from the IdeaPad Yoga 13 and a crop of new Windows 8 notebooks, but by delivering a responsive touch screen, the optical drive many consuemrs still want and great audio at $250 less than the cheapest Ultrabook Convertible the Satellite P845t is a good value for many home users.

60% Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 review: a little to bulky for the price
Source: PC World English
The Toshiba Satellite P845t-S4310 is a pretty nice computer, with nice speakers, a useable touchscreen, and some expensive-looking design elements. But I can’t help but think that a computer this bulky and under-performing needs a lower price-point. For just a couple hundred more you can pick up an Ultrabook that probably performs better, has the same processor, and weighs less. So unless you’re really on a tight budget, I’d look for something a bit sleeker.

As with the original Satellite P845, the $799.99 Toshiba Satellite P845t-S4310 has an attractive chassis and excellent audio, but now boots in a flash and has a responsive touchscreen. However, this notebook's below-average battery life and finicky touchpad detract from what is otherwise a good value.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.16 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.

Toshiba is not present in the smartphone sector. As laptop manufacturer, Toshiba still had 6.6% of world market share in 2014. However it fell to only 1.6% in 2016, making only for the 8th place.

65.6%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
