Overall good value...

  • Summary: First thing I did was to get windows 8 removed - not very straightforward but nowhere near as difficult as you may have been led to believe! Using SSD drive as essentially a boot drive is a nice touch but I can't test it on my Linux Mint installation because in my haste to rid myself of Windows 8 (and get round it's so called "safe boot" and UEFI technologies) I installed the OS on the main hard drive instead of the SSD!

my toshiba

  • Summary: Beautiful laptop! Small, thin, very light -at least, comparing it with my 15.6 Acer, previous one- It boots really, really fast -Windows 8 & the 32GB SSD- It has 4 hours of battery -it could be better, but i am happy with that. Allthough, moving my laptop once (2 times to be specific) i heard some noise from inside the hardware-like a small screw- and obviously i am afraid a bit of that. But until now, no problemos!!

  • Summary: I must say the ultralbook has been pretty good to me. I bought it for two reasons it was light and the battery life. I love it's weight and quick start up the most but I must admit the battery life is a little underwhelming.

Toshiba Satellite U940 - 100 14-inch Ultrabook (Intel Core i3 - 3217U is really good value

Howard, Amazon
22 September 2013
  • Summary: I have bought this as an overseas holiday item, I could have gone for a tablet as a replacement for my"died a death" previous travel laptop, it decided to overheat and fry the motherboard, but instead chose this due to the good reviews here. So far I'm not disappointed at all. When you get it out of the box the instructions are virtually nonexistent, the Quick Start guide basically shows you where the ports are and says plug it in and turn it on.

Superfast ultrabook, only the bad sound quality brings it down

  • Summary: So we bought this ultrabook for my partner a few months ago and she loves it. Despite the relatively big screen the device is very thin and lightweight, it's easy to move it around at home, even with one hand. Specs-wise you can't really ask for more. As long as you don't want to play new games on it the SSD drive, the i3 processor and the expandable (up to 16GB memory) will do the job for years.

Nice laptop at a great price

  • Summary: I spent an age looking and choosing a laptop and in particular Ultrabooks as I wanted something that would take seconds and not minutes to fire up like my old 10 year old laptop does! This is a great piece of kit. It goes from cold to connected to the net in around 15 seconds. It has a nice size screen and a backlit keyboard - something that is usually only available on more expensive laptops. I like Windows 8 too, once you get to grips with its new interface.

Toshiba U920 hardware excellent shame about the Wind.

Shaun, Amazon

  • Summary: Well I bought this Toshiba Satellite U940 - 100 14-inch Ultrabook (Intel Core i3 - 3217U 1.7GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD Plus 32GB SSD, Windows 8, Bluetooth)for portability and after spending days on end that I should have spent on writing theses rather than on reading reviews. Format- Why 14"? I wanted a 14" rather than 15" because I need to carry it around. At home I have my desktop and 14" is not bad for looking at text and surfing the net. Why this model?

  • Excerpt: В целом ноутбуком, конечно, пользоваться можно, но если вы не просто сидите в инете и смотрите фильмы, то сделать это с удовольствием будет трудно. Также советую подключить отдельную клавиатуру и мышь, ибо с тем чудом, что установлено на буке - вы просто повеситесь. Это мой рабочий ноут, я за ним 40 часов в неделю минимум, работаю с мышью и клавиатурой, плюс подключаю по hdmi экран 21".
  • Pros: компактный, удобный
  • Cons: - клавиатура неудобная (маленькие кнопки, практически полностью утопленные) - тачпад неудобный (цельная клавиша и для правой и для левой кнопки) - всегда гоняет вентилятор на полную мощность, как следствие шумит неимоверно - перезагрузка длится от 30 минут и более (это если НЕ устанавливаются обновления) - причину так и не нашел, стоит лицензионная корпоративная винда, попытки переустановить и настроить винду успехом не увенчались - через месяц отказал hdmi разъем, ещ...

  • Excerpt: Ноут заказал на работе как корпоративный. С точки зрения "работает и слава Богу" - терпимый, но домой такой точно бы никогда не взял из-за отвратительной сборки, низкокачественного кулера и ничтожно малого для ультрабука времени работы. Тошиба испортилась.
  • Pros: 1. Достаточно компактный и легкий для ноутбука с игровой видеокартой 2. Подсветка клавиатуры 3. Три порта ЮСБ 4. С танцем и бубнами но можно поставить Виндовс7 5. Хорошая вебкамера
  • Cons: 1. Отвратительная сборка - пластик везде тонкий и гнется, нижняя полоска рамки вокруг экрана свободно болтается на пару миллиметров 2. Батареи хватает всего на 2.5 часа с весьма неярким экраном в режиме веб-серфинга 3. При работе от батареи не дает включить режим максимальной производительности 4. Меньше чем через год затрещал дико кулер, причем начал трещать примерно через 4-5 месяцев, при этом ноутбук постоянно пылесосился так что проблема не из за грязи. 5. Тачпад ...
