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: Change is constant and adaptation is the game. With the launch of Windows 8 OS, every PC manufacturer is trying to included their piece of gizmo with the same. The new to enter the group is the brilliant U840W-X0310 from the bunch of Toshiba Satellite series. 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
Good Gear Guide.au
2 January 2013
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?
Ecran XXL 21:9 pour ce PC portable endurant signé Toshiba
22 January 2013
Summary: Vendu 899 euros, cet ultrabook Toshiba à écran 14,4 pouces au format 21:9 est un produit atypique. Sa forme extrêmement allongée ne constitue pas un handicap majeur quand il s’agit de le glisser dans un grand sac à dos ou une mallette. Bon compagnon de travail, on aurait toutefois apprécié que Toshiba livre un lecteur Blu-ray externe pour regarder des films haute définition sur l’écran XXL et –surtout- que le clavier soit rétroéclairé...
Excerpt: Toshiba har løftet de visuelle oplevelser til et nyt niveau med Satellite U840W, der er verdens første bærbare computer med skærmformatet 21:9. Skærmen er altså meget bred og følger netop det format, som langt de fleste spillefilm har.
