Source: Pocket Lint English
The Toshiba Satellite U840 is the latest consumer Ultrabook from the company and the first to offer a 14-inch display, which was nice and vibrant when we got the chance to see it in action. The hardware load-out is fairly typical for the latest generation of Ultrabooks, with a third-gen Intel Core processor and up 8GB RAM. There is a 32GB SSD to keep things speedy and 500GB of hard drive on offer.

Toshiba's 14in Ultrabook offers a good mix of light weight, thin design and useful features. It's a good all-round Ultrabook, but it could use a better screen and keyboard, as well as some tweaks to its build quality. It performed decently in our tests, but it comes with lots of pre-installed software that can sometimes get in the way -- be prepared to uninstall some stuff!

Ultrabook attack escalates: Toshiba U840 is a 14-inch practical powerhouse
Source: APC Mag English
The Toshiba and Samsung and other 14in Ultrabooks show that the Intel Ultrabook strategy is having an impact. While initially promoted as being for superslim 11in and 13in machines, the Ultrabook is really about forcing the laptop makers to stop being lazy and deliver laptops with better portability, usability and battery life across the board. And judging by the Toshiba U840, laptop buyers can only benefit.

Toshiba Satellite U845: Ultrabooks Go Mainstream
Source: AnandTech English
Toshiba’s Satellite U845 is a bit of a mixed bag. They ended up with a pretty solid notebook from a design point of view, which is an encouraging step in the right direction for Toshiba. I’m very hopeful that the level of design and build quality found in their tablets and Ultrabooks will trickle down to the rest of Toshiba’s lineup, and having a well designed Satellite is the first sign of that happening.

The Toshiba Satellite U840-S406 doesn't aim to push the envelope and, therefore, succeeds in delivering a well-designed ultrabook with a good set of features that sports a reasonable price tag. Everyday users looking for a slim, portable system for basic tasks will doubtless be pleased with it. Meanwhile, for power users looking to get the most out of their ultrabooks, the Editors' Choice-winning Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD-DB71 is still the system to beat.

Review: Toshiba Satellite U845 ultrabook
Source: Geek.com English
It’s not always easy for ultrabooks to stay below the $1,000 mark and still be high quality. The U845 has made cutbacks in some critical areas, and as a result has made a highly portable machine for $850. The U845 is not spectacular in any one way, but altogether Toshiba has made a mid-range ultrabook that is both well assembled and enjoyable to use.

Toshiba’s Satellite U845 is a more attractive product than the previous Toshiba Z835 for most consumers. It is significantly heavier, to be sure, but it makes up for that with much higher build quality and excellent all-around performance at a reasonable price. However, this new Satellite also fails to provide any compelling reason why it’s better than the alternatives. It’s not the most attractive Ultrabook or the quickest or the best value.

The time has come for more reasonably priced ultrabooks, and it seems like every Windows laptop manufacturer has one coming out this back-to-school season.The Toshiba Satellite U845 is a serviceable but generic-feeling 14-inch ultrabook that, in a quest to become more affordable, has fallen into a grey zone: not all that compact, not all that rich in features.

If you can find it priced under $800, as we did at Staples while writing this review, and you like its brushed-aluminum aesthetics, the Toshiba Satellite U845-S406 is a decent ultrabook buy. It's especially worth looking at if you find the 13-inch screens on most other ultrabooks a smidge too small. Its WiDi wireless abilities make up a bit for its 1,366x768 resolution, especially if you’ve got a 1080p TV that you can easily connect it to.

Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Toshiba U840 is priced Rs. 53,500, which makes it quite an expensive purchase. If it were somewhere close to 40K, then I could have recommended it, but we have the issue with the keyboard and trackpad which is a big let down. The U840 had the potential to be a very good candidate for an Ultrabook but the high price and a few issues in critical areas together prove to be a damper. I’d say, give this one a miss.

Toshiba Satellite U845 review: an inexpensive Ultrabook worth considering
Source: Engadget English
If you're in the market for a thin and light, not-too-expensive laptop, the Toshiba Satellite U845 isn't exactly a slam dunk, but it's certainly worth considering. While the build quality, battery life and overall performance are about on par with competing machines, we've tested models with more comfortable keyboards, and if you do your homework you'll find laptops offering better specs for the same money.

Source: Comp Reviews English
Toshiba's Satellite U845 is an attempt to make a slightly larger but still affordable ultrabook under Intel's new second generation guidelines. For the most part, the slightly large 14-inch screen doesn't really add that much more to the system other than being slightly larger and heavier than the 13-inch ultrabook. The one benefit is that it does feature more ports such as Ethernet.

The Toshiba Satellite U840-10V just doesn't quite overcome the compromises that have been made to create something a fair bit cheaper than most Ultrabooks. The spec list is good, but it falls down in the more practical aspects. If you want something smaller and lighter than the average home laptop, but don't want to pay through the nose, it's a reasonable choice. But paying £150 more will get you a much better machine.

There's a reasonable chance you'll end up hearing about the Toshiba Satellite U845T on a semiregular basis from us. That's because, at $799 for a 14-inch laptop that's ultrabook-thin, with a touch screen, Intel Core i5 processor, and 128GB solid-state drive, it's about as middle-of-the-road as laptops get.

Touch may be the headline feature in the U845t, but it’s not the most important improvement. That honor goes to the 128GB solid-state drive. Most competitors sold at a similar price – and particularly those with a touchscreen – use mechanical drives with a small solid-state cache. A single solid-state drive offers a clear improvement over a combo configuration.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

2467M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.6-2.3 GHz due to Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1150 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

Intel Core i3:

2377M: Power efficient ULV processor clocked at 1.5 GHz without Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1000 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.

3227U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.9 GHz (no Turbo Boost) and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.


14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.6 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

1.9 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


71.53%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
