I'm Dan Ackerman. We are here taking a look at the Toshiba Satellite U845t. This is a very generic looking laptop and I mean that in a good way and that it is exactly middle of the road. It's got a brush metal exterior, it's kind of Ultra Book thin, its got an Intel Core i5, 128 gig SSD, a touch screen and a backlit keyboard. All the things we wanna see in kind of a mainstream laptop at a very mainstream friendly price at $799 and that makes this at least for the moment, kind of my default go to if you want a laptop that's kind of a mid-sized, mid-priced, pretty darn good laptop. Now, you could spend a little bit more, you get something that's a little bit thinner, a little bit lighter, you could spend less and you get something that still a Core i-Series laptop with a touchscreen for maybe 550 or so, but it's gonna be a thicker, bulkier, more plastic model. I really think that its particular system really does hit that sweet spot especially because it is so thin and had such a great kind of Ultra Book style design and the brush metal, the backlit keyboard, kind of upscale features like that. Now, it's not at all perfect. I'm not a huge fan of the current generation of Toshiba Satellite keyboard. All the keys are kind of squished down a little rectangular as supposed to square. A little bit flex right in the middle and I've never really like the really small short space bars you have on a lot of Toshiba laptops. There's also only one USB 3.0 port, a couple of all the USB 2.0 ones, I think everybody should be using the higher speed connection at this point. But if you want something that's not too expensive, still looks pretty nice, I think starting off at least with this model as your default beginning point to start examine what to get. You may find that it's not exactly the right model for you. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Toshiba Satellite U845t.

Toshiba Satellite U845t Review
The good: The Toshiba Satellite U845T is thin, with a decent brushed-aluminum body, a 128GB SSD, and better performance and battery life than the competition.
The bad: The keyboard has squeezed-down keys, a small spacebar, and some flex under heavy typing. The low screen resolution feels dated in a midsize laptop.
The bottom line: While it's not going to dazzle anyone, the Toshiba Satellite U845T is a great example of exactly how much laptop $799 should buy in 2013.
