Summary: This laptop is actually a very good laptop. I use it in the car (I'm in telecomm sales) and the 14-inch screen is the perfect size for my line of work. I did two things, which addressed two issues, and were relatively inexpensive. First, for $99 I upgraded the RAM to 8 Gb. It flies now!
Great laptop performance and features for a great price

Summary: Pros: I've owned this computer for one year now. For the price ($749.00) it's specs are amazing. For my home use it cannot be beat. Windows 7 (64 bit) Home Premium included. ---It is constructed well, it's Toshiba software, i5 Intel processor, Intel integrated graphics and 4 gb ram work well and...
Summary: I have no overheating issues and everything runs pretty good actually.. For those complaining about the video card clock speed, it is easily fixed but running it back up. Using overclocking precision tool I found mine to run perfectly at a clock of 715 Core and 1010 Mem..
Pros: Solid laptop for movies and games..
Cons: Would like to see a couple more usb ports but I get by on 3...
Summary: I like this computer. It's small enough in size and performs well. It's been pretty reliable so far. I would recommend this computer to a friend.
Pros: Keyboard is awesome. I don't know if I can go back to an unlit keyboard after using this. It's pretty fast and plays SC2. Speakers are also really good. When I hook it up to my TV and blast the speakers, it sounds pretty decent.
Cons: The design doesn't flow well. When you close it, the lid doesn't sit on top of the base smoothly. It's also pretty heavy for how small it is.
Summary: Don't buy this computer. I've seen countless problems on the Toshiba support site and no one at Toshiba seems to care about the overheating issues. I fully regret purchasing this machine.
Pros: Relatively good specs, nice keyboard
Cons: Almost everything. Poorly built, flimsy, and has been overheating since the day I got it. For the first 8 months, in order to play a game or what any video, I would have to rest the laptop off of a surface so the fan on the right side wasn't touching any surface. As of the past few weeks, my fan ...
Excerpt: After my old laptop started freezing, I started thinking that it was time to shop for a new laptop. After reading several tech-related websites, I decided on buying a Toshiba laptop as the brand was known for sturdy laptops. I got the Toshiba Satellite M645-S4114 as it was within …
Summary: This laptop looks nice on paper, but it is poorly built. I returned it the next day. I needed something I could carry daily, and this probably wouldn't have lasted even 3 months in that role.
Pros: The base of the laptop is all plastic, but it is pretty solid. The keyboard is backlit. It has a decent graphics card, though it is significantly underclocked.
Cons: The lid is the cheapest and flimsiest thing that I've ever seen. I've honestly never seen a flimsier lid on a laptop. The hinge is also very weak and barely holds the screen up even when new, and undoubtedly will loosen up significantly over time. There is a HUGE amount of bloatware. The touch se...
Summary: Bought this computer about 3 months ago because it seemed to be the best value for the money. I was looking for a notebook to create videos. Have re-evaluated my decision a few times since and still think it was the right choice.
