Toshiba starts sales of Satellite U840W ultrabook

Toshiba has introduced a new ultrabook – the Satellite U840W – with an ultra-wide 14.4-inch display and 21:9 aspect ratio.

Yes, the screen is what strikes when you see the Satellite U840W for the first time. It works at the unusual 1729 x 768 pixel resolution thanks to its 21:9 aspect ratio, which makes it perfect for watching movies for example.

Apart from the display the Satellite U840W offers energy-efficient Intel Core i5-3317U or Core i7-3517U Ivy Bridge processors and Intel HD 4000 graphics. 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 comes with a special technology too that stretches the image displayed if you start two applications at the same time so that you can view both of them at the same time.

The Toshiba Satellite U840W should cost around USD 1300.
