Lot of pros for the price but with a few cons

Matt Stafford, Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: A great laptop for the price (I got this for 499.00 on Cyber Monday) however, it's not without a few problems (I've owned this for about a year and a half at the time of this review). The bad news: (1) Casing is metal but not Macbook Air aluminum but rather some kind of fragile painted metal skin that I still can't tell what it is made of. Looks cool at first but the paint starts wearing off and you see spots (looks cheap) where the metal paint or metal skin wears off.

Toshiba is great, but Windows 8 is bad

JGL, Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: I like this Toshiba, but initially I had a lot of trouble typing things. The touch pad was too sensitive to be useful. Every little motion made the cursor jump to random places for both Word and email typing. It was so frustrating. Eventually someone helped me get rid of hot keys and then all the mouse functions. I am fine now. My suggestion to you is to ask the customer if they want Windows 8; don't just install it blindly.

Toshiba U845 review

Rick Shaw, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: Everything is good except for one slight problem. The space bar on the keyboard doesn't register unless you push down with emphasis. If you don't, you will have words run together. Other than that, it's working just fine for my needs.

Good product, but not excellent

Ana, Amazon
8 December 2012
  • Summary: This is a good Ultrabook, but not excellent. HD makes noise sometimes (including some "clicks", which makes me wonder about its health; that I'll figure out just with time), more than the standard for most laptops. Touchpad sometimes fails on recognizing taps on some areas (it can be adjusted on its settings to make it work smoother, yet this is not among the best touchpads you'll find around).

pretty good laptop for a very reasonable price

yish99, Amazon

  • Summary: i was kind of skeptical about this laptop because the price was pretty low for an ultrabook with features such as the toshiba u845-s406. i must say i was pretty surprised by its performance so far. it's very sleek and fast pretty light, and has good speakers. the only downside so far is it gets a little warm, and make some sound but still nothing to serious.

It's what you would expect for a mid-range ultra-book.

Kivrin, Amazon

  • Summary: This computer is not the fastest out there, nor does it have the most advanced features. But it's great if you need a very portable laptop and you don't have the budget to buy a macbook air. Though you can buy cheaper laptops, at similar specs, this laptop falls into the 'ultrabook' category as defined by Intel. The benefits to an ultrabook is the thin size, light weight, and long battery life.
