Toshiba's U845t is an affordable Windows 8 laptop that offers good bang for the buck. We'll get it out of the way right now -- one area where Toshiba cut corners is the display, as Digital Trends says "the display doesn't stand out in any area." But when using the U845t you can see the benefits in this budget friendly device. PC Mag found it "sailed pass the competition" when performing tests, and Laptop Magazine says it has "fast overall performance." CNET is impressed by the U845t's battery life, saying that "any laptop that tops 6 hours is impressive, and for a $799 14-incher, that's even more impressive." It's not going to be out some of the best on the market, but for the money it's pretty hard to beat.
