Where the Satellite P disappoints, especially for a premium model, is in the storage department. Unlike many new laptops that make use Toshiba Satellite P840 a dedicated solid state drive to boost boot time and performance, the Toshiba only has its 1TB, rpm hard drive.

This had little noticeable effect on the laptop during everyday usage it felt like Web browsers loaded just that little bit quicker but CrystalDiskMark did report a slight speed boost when the Toshiba Satellite P840 was enabled. With HDD Accelerator disabled, read and write rates of So much software It's worth noting that there is a lot of pre-loaded software on this laptop, and some of it just gets in the way of a good time. Clickfree, in particular, popped up each time we plugged in an external device to ask if we would like to use it as a backup, and it also regularly reminded us to "start your free trial today".


We also got messages from Norton Internet Security, Splashtop, and from Toshiba's own utilities for updates and further attention. It's the type of laptop you really need to sit down and streamline to your liking before you can really start to enjoy the computing experience. Another mild annoyance for us was the overly-sensitive hard drive utility, which detected even the most minimal movement and alerted us that the drive had been stopped in order to be protected from damage. We disabled it, but we could have adjusted this sensitivity instead. Toshiba Toshiba Satellite P840 Assist includes some useful utilities, and it's where you can enable or disable the HDD Accelerator feature, among other features.

The only useful pre-installed software, in our opinion, is Toshiba's Desktop Assist, which allows you to view system settings and change the way some things work such as swapping the Function key operations.

It also allows you to easily create backup media for the laptop, to optical disc or USB. The pre-installed software loads in the background after you've booted, even though the system may seem ready Toshiba Satellite P840 you're at the Windows 8 Start screen, and the system boots up quite slowly due to being hard drive-based. It took 32sec to cold boot, which is slow. A system that has a hybrid solution consisting of a hard drive and a solid state cache drive such as the ASUS VivoBook Toshiba Satellite P840for example can cold boot in only 12sec.

Look and feel What's immediately striking about this 14in laptop is its metallic look. Toshiba has made this model stand out by giving it a silver finish, a bumpy texture and some chrome trimmings.

For the most part, it works well without looking too flashy, and it's definitely a laptop for those of you who want something Toshiba Satellite P840 little more interesting than a traditional design. The build quality of the base feels decent. There is minimal flex and it doesn't creak when you put pressure on it or move it around. However, we can't say the same for the screen.

Toshiba Satellite P840 Series

It has edge-to-edge, scratch resistant Gorilla Glass that goes from the left to the right edge, but it doesn't extend all the way to the top and bottom edges, leaving scratch-prone areas. Additionally, when we flexed the screen, the glass could be seen coming away from the screen in the upper-left and right corners — and with moderate pressure, we also heard it unsticking. It feels like a flimsy design, and considering the price point of this notebook and its positioning as a premium model, it should be a lot sturdier. That said, we Toshiba Satellite P840 think it will fall apart; unless you actively put pressure on the screen a lot of the time, it will be fine.

The Gorilla Glass doesn't extend to the top of the screen. The way it's attached could also leave it prone to separating from the screen if the screen is flexed -- which isn't likely to happen during the regular operation of the laptop. Like many other Toshiba laptops we've seen, the screen on this model isn't great. The vertical viewing angles need frequent adjustment unless you're sitting just right, and reflections from the Gorilla Glass are terribly annoying, even when the screen brightness is at its highest level. There were times in the office when Toshiba Satellite P840 computer was just not enjoyable to use because of the strength of the reflections coming off the screen. Call the S what it is: Single Review, online available, Long, Date: PC Mag With its decent performance and feature set, the Toshiba Satellite PT-S is a good option for anyone on the market for a touch-enabled Windows 8 mainstream laptop.

Still, the Satellite PT-S is worth checking out for users who prefer a combination of touch functionality and solid performance. PC World The Toshiba Satellite Pt-S is a pretty nice computer, with nice Toshiba Satellite P840, a useable touchscreen, and some expensive-looking design elements. For just a couple hundred more you can pick up an Ultrabook that probably performs better, has the same processor, and weighs less.
