- Construction/Look: The chassis and chiclet keyboard (spill-resistant) feel real sturdy and of high-quality. The construction of this laptop doesn't have a cheap "plastic" feeling like some laptops out on the market.
- Battery Life: The battery life on this 6-cell battery is unbelievable, especially for a 14' laptop. For the first few charge cycles, I've been able to consistently get over 7 hours of battery life surfing the web and playing music with headphones. The ecoUtility app really helps with prolonging battery life.
- Intel WiDi capable: I really wanted a laptop with this capability so that I can wirelessly stream to my TV while working on my laptop. Note that you need to buy a WiDi adapter to connect to your TV/display (~$100).
- Performance: The i5 processor coupled with 6GB of memory gives this laptop plenty of juice for 99% of computing activities.
- SIZE of hard drive: 640GB of space is more than you'll probably even use.
- Weight: 4.2 pounds and just about 1 inch thick makes this laptop pretty portable.
- Optical Drive: This may not factor much for some people, but as more and more companies opt to remove optical drives from their laptops, it was nice to see Toshiba put in a full DVD burner/drive on this machine.
- Connectivity: 1 USB 3.0 port AND capability for USB Sleep-and-Charge (charge stuff while laptop is off) AND an e-SATA/USB combo port AND an HDMI input is awesome!Read more ›
Fast i5 processor
6 gigs of RAM, a spacious HDD
Long battery life (at least 4.5 hours on full blast; up to 7.5 hours if not used aggressively)
USB 3.0 (w/ sleep and charge)
HDD protection gizmo - allegedly protects the hard drive from minor accidents
Squishy keyboard - beware if you're a regular touch typist!
The wireless antenna works only on the 2.4 GHz band - even my 3-year old HP Pavilion can connect to the 5 GHz band! However, this laptop has far better reception, so it's not such a big deal. Just a tad disappointing.
Everything seems cheap - the hinges creak, the plastic looks cheesy. When I lug it around closed, I'm afraid it will crack open.
A really silly choice of dedicated shortcut buttons (there are only two; one is for turning on the Eco mode - why would I need to do this in a hurry? why? - the other one switches on the WiDi; IMHO a mute + wifi antenna buttons would have made much more sense)
Despite all the negative remarks, the laptop gets the job done without breaking a sweat, and if it weren't for the horrid keyboard I'd have given it 4 stars.
Windows boot-up time is around 14 seconds, programs open almost instantly, and even programs that take up a few gigabytes install in seconds. By far the best laptop I've owned, comes to around $800 with the SSD upgrade. Besides you'll have a free 640 GB external slim hard drive for all your storage (movies, music, photos) purposes. (Don't forget to order an HDD enclosure for around $5-10)
The power usage while browsing with wireless on and brightness at half averages around 7 Watts, so I'd expect to get a good 8.5-9 hours of usage with the 66 Wh battery. (SSDs consume less power than HDDs)
Compared to various higher-end ultrabooks costing around $1200, the R845-S85 has a slightly better CPU, same Graphics (Intel HD 3000), better battery, and more ports (3xUSB, HDMI, VGA, ethernet). Besides the Crucial SSD also outperforms other brands in benchmark tests. OK, it's a pound heavier, quarter of an inch thicker, and doesn't have the "looks", but it's hundreds of dollars cheaper despite the higher performance&quality components and the build quality of Toshiba. (owned an Asus before buying this, which fell apart because of the cheap plastic case, poor DC Jack and bad build quality overall)
The only downside is that the GPU (Intel HD 3000), which won't allow new games with high settings. But then again, sub 14-inch notebooks almost never have dedicated graphics cards.
If you are looking for a portable and inexpensive powerhouse, this is the one to go with. Highly recommended.
