Touch Screen with Windows 8

The Satellite P845t with its touch screen has been specifically designed for the new intuitive Windows 8 platform. Designed for easy interaction with the tiled based Windows 8 operating system, the P845t supports 5 finger multi-touch for efficient use.

Windows 8

Windows 8 has been reimagined to be all about you. Put what matters most right on your Start screen, and get instant access to your people, apps, sites and more, so you can spend less time searching and more time doing. The intuitive, fast, and fluid design of Windows 8 is perfect for Toshiba laptops

Multi-touch Functionality

The Satellite P845t's touchpad features multi-touch gesture support, providing an innovative alternative to conventional scrolling and buttons. The touchpad features an advanced, touch-sensitive interface solution that senses the position of a finger or fingers on its surface and recognises pinching, swiping, and rotating motions performed by simply moving your fingers.

The multi-touch touchpad recognises six different finger gestures, including:

  • Pinch Gesture--two-finger pinch delivers zooming functionality in many Windows applications. The two-finger pinch zoom can be used to zoom in or out of photos, maps, or documents.
  • One or Two Finger Scrolling--scrolling delivers functionality in Windows applications by using one or two separate fingers in a horizontal or vertical motion anywhere on the touchpad, with the scrolling rate controlled by your finger speed.
  • Chiral Scrolling--whenever you wish to scroll just slide two fingers downwards (or upwards) and then you can move your fingers in clockwise or anticlockwise motion to continue scrolling.
  • Momentum Motion--delivers smooth, fast, trackball-like cursor motion. A quick flick of one finger across the touchpad surface can move the cursor across the entire screen and is ideal for use with computer gaming applications.
  • Rotation--rotate photos and other items in 90-degree increments by placing two separated fingers on the touchpad and moving them around in a continuous clockwise or counter-clockwise circular motion.

NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad Core Processor

An NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor enables amazing multitasking, web surfing, gaming and video. It features a 4-PLUS-1 mobile quad-core CPU, so you get amazing performance and it has a unique fifth battery-saver core for a longer battery life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't wait to get rid of it... 31 Dec 2012
I received this computer just prior to the Christmas selling season. I experienced one bad experience after the other including:
1) Skipped keys while typing slowing typing speed
2) Slightly cramped keyboard slowing typing speed
3) The touch icons worked inconsistently; sometime not at all
4) Some programs would download only with the mouse and not with the touchscreen
5) Toshiba's customer's service frequently couldn't solve my problem and escalated me to a higher level where they tried to sell me an expensive warranty plan
6) Difficulties using Apple I-Tunes; there were some incompatibilities
7) Since owning this computer, I was instructed by Toshiba to refresh my computer twice due to easy corruption of files

I never returned a computer before in my life; I couldn't wait to get rid of this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sending mine back 14 Mar 2013
By kostas
I have been a Toshiba user since my second laptop in 1995 which cost 3500!

This is being sent back for the following reasons:

I don't like Windows 8. I even downgraded Vista to XP which is what I still use.

The Touchpad is worse than useless. Because the buttons are integrated into the same bit as the 'mousy' bit, it is difficult to right or left-click without the cursor 'jumping' to a different part of the screen. Dragging is difficult for this reason too.

When you leave something open on the screen and close the lid, opening it up again you'll see that it's as though buttons were being pressed when the screen was closed. I had file manager open and when I closed the screen then opened it again a few minutes later, there were about 20 shortcuts created but worst of all, some files were being copied from one directory to another! If they were being deleted, I would not have been happy.

The glossy screen makes it difficult to see when you've got a window behind you with daylight coming in.

The only positive is the backlit keyboard.

I will be buying a non-touchscreen Toshiba laptop with Windows 7, non-reflective screen, separate buttons on the touchpad, and a backlit keyboard (along with SD card slot, bluetooth and at least one USB3 slot).

I bought this heap of junk just under a year ago. I have had nothing but problems with it from the word go. I've given up altogether now, and have taken the plunge, splashing out an an Apple Macbook instead. It comes tomorrow, so this is the last night that I'll have to use the Toshiba. I can't wait to see the back of it.

Let's get the one 'plus' point out of the way, so that I can get on with the moaning. The sound. Excellent. I'm a musician, and the sound quality on the Toshiba is fantastic. DVD's sound great on it, when you can actually find the media player on the thing, that is, and the picture quality for films n stuff is okay too. And that's the only thing to recommend this laptop.

Now to the minus points. Firstly, the operating system, Windows 8, is awful, no, make that diabolical, constructed by Satan himself. There's no reassuring 'start' icon in the bottom left-hand corner, which threw me straight away. The whole thing is all over the place, a completely incoherent mess which is made ten times worse if you try and navigate around the operating system via the touch-screen (which is completely chaotic). After a couple of days of Windows 8, I was already using my old laptop again, because it had Windows 7, which was so much more user-friendly. The new Toshiba spent a couple of months unused, upside down, and shoved under the sofa. Then the old laptop broke, and I was forced to start using it again, but only because I had no choice,

You can take a photo with the on-board camera on the Toshiba. Straight afterwards, you get the helpful message 'something went wrong with this photo', which in plain terms means that you can't save it. It's been like that since I bought the laptop. It's the same with videos. Forget it, you're wasting your time...

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat, compact and beautifully formed. 24 Jun 2013
By Paul Madge #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
My review refers to the P845t model with an i3 processor, 6GB RAM & 640GB hard drive.

In my opinion these are the pros and cons of this machine -

Pros

- Stylish, metal feel case.
- Compact size but easy to work on and so much more portable than a 15.3" laptop - in fact, I think this machine is close to being a laptop/ultrabook hybrid but sports an integral optical drive.
- Good quality screen plus, the fact it is a touchscreen is a definite advantage with Windows 8 - you can't blame Toshiba for usability issues with Windows 8.
- I like the keyboard which is illuminated and has a good feel - yes, the keys are slightly closer together than on a 15.3" machine as this is a 14" device.
- The touchpad is great - it works a little differently to some but once you get the hang of it it's fine.
- The sound is very good - the best I've heard on a laptop.
- Once the power management is configured properly the battery life is quite good - a bit like a car's MPG, the manufacturer's figure is only attainable under ideal conditions.
- Overall, this machine has a quality feel and looks good whilst being easily portable by virtue of its weight and size.

Cons

- Sometimes not quite as fast as I expected with an iCore processor and 6GB of RAM, but I'm not sure whether that is because of Windows 8 plus, the fact is I'm used to a powerful desktop.
- Optimum screen viewing angle could be a bit wider.
- Quite expensive but it seems to be in a niche position in the market - there aren't many 14" touchscreen machines with an optical drive built in.
- Nothing else I can see at the moment.

Overall, a nice, compact machine which I've really taken to. Recommended.
