Toshiba Satellite U840 review: a cheaper Ultrabook
8 March 2014
Excerpt: The Toshiba U840-10V comes in at the lower end of the price scale for Ultrabooks. Available online for around £650 (around AU$998/US$1,034), it beats the price of the likes of the Asus Zenbook UX31 by a couple of hundred pounds, and the likes of the Samsung Series 9 by enough to buy a whole second...
Summary: The Toshiba Satellite U840 laptop is ideal for those who need to work and to stay connected while on the move. The strengths are a particularly attractive design, maximum connectivity and high autonomy. The audio performance is thanks to SRS Premium Sound 3D.
Excerpt: Budget ultrabooks are no longer inferior to their more expensive cousins, with the recent trends pegging them firmly in the “powerful” category. All that performance, and without barely any compromise with battery life. Toshiba, unfortunately, hasn’t reached the doors of that kingdom yet!
Summary: It seems to be raining ultrabooks in the Indian market with all major brands releasing their version of this sleek yet power-packed device. And one of the newest offerings is the Satellite U840, from Toshiba, the Japanese electronic major.

Summary: Toshiba's 14in Ultrabook offers a good mix of light weight, thin design and useful features. It's a good all-round Ultrabook, but it could use a better screen and keyboard, as well as some tweaks to its build quality.
Pros: Thin and light, Decent performer, USB 3.0, HDMI
Cons: Aspects of build could be better, Screen could be better, Keyboard could be better, No Gigabit Ethernet
Summary: The Toshiba U840 is priced Rs. 53,500, which makes it quite an expensive purchase. If it were somewhere close to 40K, then I could have recommended it, but we have the issue with the keyboard and trackpad which is a big let down.
Summary: Toshiba's U840-10V is a lower priced Ultrabook
Pros: Nice price point, Simple clean design, Decent processor, Generous memory, The design is simple, and hard to dislike. Some may find it boring, but we think the brushed slate is handsome. The build quality overall shows little sign of this being a cheap Ultrabook (save for the keyboard). The price ...
Cons: No SSD storage, Low res screen, Poor battery life, There is evidence of the cost-cutting when you use the Toshiba Satellite U840-10V, and in some cases, it's hard to ignore. The screen's viewing angles are a pain if you're stuck somewhere like a train, with no way to adjust your angle, while the ...
