Summary: The Toshiba Satellite U840W is available in two variants—U840W-X0310 and X0110. Both the variants feature identical configuration. The only difference is that the X0310 ships with Windows 7 Home Premium and the X0110 ships with Windows 8. The U840W-X0310 is priced at Rs 63,500 and the X0110 ships at Rs 1,000 more. This could be because of the higher cost of the Windows 8 OS.
Excerpt: Ultrabooks may not be commodity computers yet, but that’s the path we seem to be going down, at least. Credit then is due to Toshiba, which is doing something unique with its Satellite U840W . There’s no sense beating around the bush: It’s the screen that will immediately catch your eye when you crack open the machine’s lid. At 14.4 inches diagonally, it’s an odd overall size, but the real story is in its dimensions.
Excerpt: The first reaction that turns up in our mind when we catch sight of this device is wow. This laptop comes backed with serious hardware and software that ensures extremely smooth multitasking and works great for everyday use.

This laptop with its serious hardware and software ensures smooth overall performance with exciting multimedia experience.
Toshiba U840W review: an extra-wide, and very stylish Ultrabook that offers a fantastic multimedia experience

Summary: The Toshiba Satellite U840W is designed for multimedia above all else -- it has exceptoinal speakers and its extra-wide screen allows many movies to fit in it perfectly, but it's also very useful for multitasking. We like the build quality and the design of the notebook and think it looks very stylish. We just wish it had a matte screen, a slightly better keyboard and faster networking features.
Pros: Well built and very stylish, Provides a great multimedia experience, Good battery life
Cons: Glossy screen, Keys a little too shallow, Slow networking
Summary: So far laptops based on Intel’s ultrabook specifications - such as the Acer Aspire S3 - have staunchly stuck to the Macbook Air-style design language of brushed-aluminium slimness. Toshiba, though, have created a laptop that succeeds in ultrabook certification but looks nothing like Apple’s iconic laptop. Designed specifically for watching movies, it features an ultra-wide display and decent speakers. But does it also perform as a day-to-day laptop?
Excerpt: Toshiba’s latest premium Ultrabook is the first we’ve seen with an ultra-widescreen 21:9 display ratio. That’s the shape of the cinema screens in your local multiplex, but don’t be put off, as the Satellite U840W is also suited to multi-tasking, with ample room for working on two documents simultaneously.
