Toshiba Satellite U845W-S410 review

 

The U845W ultimately shapes up as an executive toy rather than as a serious attempt to address the needs of mobile film buffs. The 21:9 display comes across as a gimmick, especially when you factor in the omission of Blu-ray even as an option. You can...

Toshiba Satellite P755D review

 

The Toshiba Satellite P755D is a decent all-purpose laptop, not too thick and, though plastic, pretty solid. Performance in our tests was quite modest, though it has some nice multimedia features. Faster performance, accessible documentation,...

Toshiba Satellite P840 touchscreen notebook

 

Toshiba's 14in touchscreen notebook has lots of storage space and good performance, but falls short in a few key areas

Stylish ; Lots of storage space ; Good speed ; Comfortable keyboard

Very reflective screen ; Touchpad could be better ; Single-band Wi-Fi ; No SSD

Toshiba's Satellite P840 is an all-purpose laptop with good speed and lots of style. However, it doesn't have what's needed to justify its premium price tag and we think that the build quality of its screen is questionable.

Toshiba Satellite S955 Review

 

This laptop is a good value if it can be found for $600 but should be crossed off your list as long as it's priced higher than that.

The Toshiba S955, like most inexpensive Windows laptops, has its fair share of weaknesses. The display is adequate at best, the keyboard is lacking, and the build quality is mixed. All of these downsides are common of laptops in the segment, but some...

Toshiba Satellite U845W review: an Ultrabook with a screen size all its own

 

More Info Toshiba outs Satellite U845W Ultrabook with 14.4-inch, 21:9 display (updated: $999 and up in the US) The Ultrabooks of Computex 2012

Powerful speakers ; Attractive design ; Decent battery life for a 14-inch laptop

Uncomfortable keyboard ; Flaky trackpad ; Display not compatible with most media

The U845W Ultrabook is the first laptop with a 21:9 display, but ultimately its odd, outsized dimensions are more of a nuisance than a boon.

Toshiba Satellite U845T review

 

There's a reasonable chance you'll end up hearing about the Toshiba Satellite U845T on a semiregular basis from us. That's because, at $799 for a 14-inch laptop that's ultrabook-thin, with a touch screen, Intel Core i5 processor, and 128GB solid-state...

The Toshiba Satellite U845T is thin, with a decent brushed-aluminum body, a 128GB SSD, and better performance and battery life than the competition.

The keyboard has squeezed-down keys, a small spacebar, and some flex under heavy typing. The low screen resolution feels dated in a midsize laptop.

While it's not going to dazzle anyone, the Toshiba Satellite U845T is a great example of exactly how much laptop $799 should buy in 2013.

Toshiba Satellite U945-S4390

 

The Toshiba Satellite U945-S4390 is a reasonably priced Windows 8-equipped ultrabook with some nifty features to boot.

Reasonably priced. Good performance. WiDi.

Bloatware. Uncomfortable to type on. So-so battery life.

Toshiba Satellite U845W-S430 review: No touch, but a very long screen

 

The wide-screen Toshiba Satellite U845W-S430 has an extra-long, higher-resolution screen, Harman Kardon speakers that pack a punch, and an attractive, compact design with plenty of ports.

The keyboard and touch pad are uncomfortable, the wide screen isn't a perfect marriage with Windows 8, and the screen doesn’t always play nicely with all streaming video content.

Toshiba's experimental extra-wide-screen ultrabook gets a Windows 8 software upgrade, but it turns the Toshiba Satellite U845W into a computer imperfectly matched for what Windows 8 has to offer.

The Toshiba Satellite U945: Budget Windows 8 ultrabook gets even more budgety

 

Trimming down and shedding metal for plastic, the U945's a modest redesign of the existing Satellite U845; but if it makes for a more affordable laptop, then it's a good move.

Toshiba Satellite A665D-S6085

 

The Toshiba Satellite A665D-S6085 makes a great entertainment laptop with its amazing sounding audio, gorgeous-looking display, and Blu-ray drive.

Harmon Kardon speakers dish out delicious-sounding audio. Great-looking display. Blu-ray drive.

Disappointing battery life. Glossy display. Display doesn?t support 1080p playback.
