Crushing on Inanimate Objects – Loving Toshiba

I am jinxed.  Well, when it comes to electronics anyway.  As a matter of fact, my loving Hubby has “banned” me from touching his laptop.  (Yeah, so he doesn’t have to know I touch touch TOUCH it just to spite him ALL the time) Ahem.  Anyway, back to me.  I have managed to kill one computer, one cell phone and no matter how careful I was with my notebook, I hung it, froze it and ended up cursing at that thing just about every single day.  Me and pretty electronic things just don’t get along.  Until now!!! 

Enter into my world this super pretty Toshiba Satellite L745 Laptop. 


She arrived on my doorstep all wrapped up in bubble paper.  I might have “squeed” a bit as I unwrapped her shiny newness.


Now that I have been using the Toshiba Satellite L745 Laptop for more then a month I can say with confidence that there are many reasons it is the perfect laptop for me….for you!

*It is user friendly.

*It is light weight ( I take her everywhere)

*It has a 14” HD Screen!

*It has a built in DVD player.

*Boasts more then 8G of memory, more storage then I will ever need.

*I have to discuss the keypad.  Having gone through my share of keyboards, I have to tell you I love the touch, the feel, of the keys.  It sounds like a silly thing, but it makes a difference!


*The laptop has built in stereo speakers.

*An integrated web cam.

*Ports include a place where I can slide my full size memory card.  (no more hunting for the camera cord to hook up!) 

*The battery life on this laptop lasts FOREVER!  I have gone more then 5 hours without having to plug in!

*One other feature that must be mentioned…face recognition!  Very Star Trek!! Toshiba explains this futuristic feature like as follows:

Log on—with just a smile.

Toshiba Face Recognition is the ultimate hands-free, hassle-free way to logon to your laptop. No keeping track of hard-to-remember passwords. No unnecessary typing. Just your unique visage gazing into the built-in Webcam on your notebook and presto―you’ve got access! How’s that for sci-fi technology?

I would describe it as extraordinary!!


In summary, the Toshiba Satellite L745 is the perfect, reliable and budget friendly choice for students, bloggers, and Mamas alike! 

As I made my way through University, work and now my blogging career, I have used and abused many brands of laptops.  I can say in all honesty this Toshiba Satellite Laptop has been by far my favourite!  Confession, I’m crushing on my Toshiba Laptop.

  1. My last laptop was a Toshiba Satelite, loved that machine! The face recognition of this one? LOVE that!!

  2. Face recognition is a very cool feature. What a fun review!

  3. I like Toshiba. I have one that is 4 years old and I have the netbook which is a year old. So glad your happy with yours.

  4. 2 days ago my college age son spilled water on his new $2000 MAC,,ouch!!!

  5. Our last two laptops have been Toshiba and I love them. Unfortunately, when we realized we needed another computer in this house I had to go with a small, tiny notebook for cost reasons.

  6. VERY cool laptop!! Want!

  7. nice….so cool…i need a new laptop…mine bit it over the holiday…

  8. I’ve had this Toshiba Satellite for a couple of years now, and I love it. I, also, have the face-recognition thing, but I don’t use it. You’re tempting me to try it, though. 🙂

  9. I love my Sony. But I’d be up for a change! Glad you found a new crush!

  10. I, too, kill electronics. Even watches. I stopped wearing them years ago because they break within a few months. Changing the battery does not help. I think it’s my body chemistry. Well, the cell phones break because I drop them. All the time.

  11. I love to see what other bloggers use. Love the face recognition, great for me as i have teens. I just bought a new laptop and my puppy chewed the power cord lol But before that I broke the screen on my new netbook and my dd spilt juice on my old laptop frying it

  12. My laptop is a beast – it is soo heavy and face recognition is such a cool feature.
    Will add this laptop to my list of potentials when shopping

  13. Wow! These seems like a great machine. I am due for a new one pretty soon so I will definitely take a look at this one.

  14. Sounds like an amazing laptop, but I have just one question… Does it come in pink!?

    Just kidding, it does sound like a great laptop, I’d like to get a new one soon.. Perhaps I will consider this one!

  15. Wow, that sounds like an awesome laptop, face recognition, who knew. Looks like I’ll be adding something new on my wish list.

  16. I have been looking that the Toshiba Ultrabooks – they look amazing, small and light weight prefect for taking on the go. And hubby wants a Toshiba 3D TV. So we are both having Toshiba crushes right now!

  17. Sounds like a great deal. The battery life sounds wonderful.
    Have a great day.

  18. Congrats to YOU and your new baby.
    me? I’ll never break up with my mac. 🙂

  19. Battery life is always a selling point. I find Toshiba’s to be really good machines all around. Thanks for sharing.

  20. it’s so pretty! lol.

    and I LOVE the idea of facial recognition!!!

  21. Oooh! Very cool! We’re in the market for a new computer/laptop and we LOVE Toshiba. Thanks for sharing this!

  22. I am so technologically challenged I don’t know how to get online via wi-fi. I know you said jinxed not challenged, but I will prefer to think of it like we are in the same category.

  23. This is awesome. I think my new laptop is almost ready to be replaced… yep, I said new. I will not disclose what kind it is… but I am not satisfied 4 months later.

  24. I want one! Sadly, in this household, we’ll never, ever purchase a computer, much less a brand new one. My husband rebuilds and works on servers for a living, so I’m usually typing away at some 1987 relic. 🙂

    Enjoy your new technology. 🙂

  25. The feel of a keyboard is one of the most important features of a computer for me!

  26. I absolutely Love, love love my Toshiba satellite. It is an older version but it has been my favorite so far and I would buy another one when this one sadly bites the dust.

  27. This sounds like an amazing machine. Thanks for a great review.
