Toshiba's Satellite L645D-S4036 laptop is an inexpensive, lightweight machine that'll suit budget-minded students. It won't blow your mind with its performance, but it has 4Gb of RAM, a triple-core AMD Phenom II processor, a DVD-writer, and a 320Gb hard drive.
Toshiba's L645D clearly aims for the hearts of budget laptop buyers, but some of the compromises it makes to hit its low price may be too severe.
- Good hard-drive capacity
- Low cost
- Video playback quality subpar
- Terrible speakers
