Internet Security Threat Report 2014

3Dmark Vantage turned its nose up at the poor old Satellite L450 and refused to return a result. Thankfully, 3Dmark06 was less snobbish, although the end result of 629 at 1366 x 768 does little to flatter. Serious gaming is therefore a write-off, but at this price it was never really on the cards in the first place.

Longer bars are better

Those interested in working away from the mains won’t be pleased to hear the Satellite L450 only managed to keep the lights on for 84 minutes. This time was recorded with the laptop running its socks off, but even so we were hoping it to at least break the two-hour mark. Then again, with its chunky chassis weighing 2.6kg - 3.1kg with the power adapter - it’s not the kind of beast you’ll want to cart around with you for long.

As expected, Toshiba has gone for Windows 7 as the operating system, and the Satellite L450 comes with the 64-bit Home Premium version pre-installed. If 32-bit is more your thing, don’t fret since Toshiba also includes a 32-bit Windows 7 recovery DVD.
