  • Excerpt: The Toshiba Satellite U845 is a mainstream, affordable Ultrabook. At 14", 4.1 pounds and 0.8" thick, it's actually a wee bit portly to match the popular Ultrabook sweet spot of 13.3" and 3 pounds, but this isn't the first time we've seen the definition stretched.
  • Pros: Affordable, good build quality, good port selection.
  • Cons: Dull design, no features set it apart from other Ultrabooks.

Geek.com
9 August 2012
  • Excerpt: As the ultrabook category of computers grows more crowded, these machines will need to do three things well in order to survive: They will need to not look like a Macbook Air , to demonstrate that they are ready for Windows 8, and to come in at a good price without sacrificing quality.

Toshiba Satellite U845-S402 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
31 July 2012
  • Summary: Yes, you can upgrade to a U845 with a faster CPU, but you'll still be getting a system that suffers from a cramped keyboard and a hotter-running chassis. The U845 just isn't as good a deal as it seems.

Expert Review

ComputerShopper
26 July 2012
  • Conclusion: If Staples’ pricing happens to be a fluke, however, and the price hovers closer to Toshiba’s $879 MSRP, the U845-S406 becomes harder to recommend. Less-costly, lighter options like Sony’s VAIO T Series and Lenovo’s U310 are readily available.
  • Pros: Built-in WiDi for connecting to HDTVs, Backlit keyboard, More RAM than some competing machines
  • Cons: Design, features don’t stand out substantively from other ultrabooks, Test machine had hairline crack above SD-card slot
