With Harmon Kardon speakers, the Toshiba Satellite M645-S4055 laptop is a great buy at 1049$. It can be used as a laptop as well as a speaker connected to any i-Pod, even when it is turned off. The viewing angles on its 14 inch LED backlit screen are very good, and the colours seem to be fine too. A raised keyboard and a DVD burner are some other features of this laptop. Although it has a short battery life, but the great combination of audio-video graphics courtesy the Nvidia Optimus card make it an ideal mid-size laptop.
