The specs list continues with 6 GB of DDR3 memory, a hybrid storage solution (a 500 GB HDD and a 32 GB SSD) or just a 128 GB SSD, a multicard reader, a HD web camera, Harmon Kardon speakers with SRS Premium Sound 3D technology, three USB 3.0 ports, LAN, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, Intel WiDi technology and a HDMI output.

The Toshiba Satellite U840W should cost around USD 1300.
