Summary: Toshiba Satellite U845 laptop is ideal for those who need to work and to stay connected while on the move. The strengths are a particularly attractive design, maximum connectivity and high autonomy. The audio performance is thanks to SRS Premium Sound 3D.
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.
Conclusion: Toshiba’s Satellite U845 is a more attractive product than the previous Toshiba Z835 for most consumers. It is significantly heavier, to be sure, but it makes up for that with much higher build quality and excellent all-around performance at a reasonable price.
Pros: Elegant exterior, Competitive battery life
Cons: Terrible keyboard, No stand-out feature, Inferior value compared to competitors
