Conclusion: If that sounds like somewhat lukewarm praise, so be it—as we said, we've been spoiled by deluxe ultrabooks like Acer's Aspire S7-392, and we can't quite forget the Satellite's appalling audio.
Pros: Handsome design, Good keyboard and battery life
Cons: Low screen resolution, Terrible audio, A trifle heavy
Summary: For $699, the Toshiba Satellite E45t Ultrabook is a capable and attractive Windows 8 thin-and-light notebook. It offers brisk performance, long battery life and a responsive touch screen. Our biggest qualm is this notebook's lackluster display. For $20 less, we prefer the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch.
