Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite U840W-107

Review: Toshiba Satellite U840W/002
Source: PC Authority English
Toshiba’s U840W-107 packs in plenty for $1499, with a wide screen, distinctive chassis and beefy speakers. But there isn’t quite enough quality on show for our liking: the screen isn’t punchy enough, the keyboard is disappointing, and performance is middling. Unless you desperately want the unique, super-wide screen, we’d opt for a 13in MacBook Air instead.

Toshiba’s U840W packs in plenty for £899 inc VAT, with a wide screen, distinctive chassis and beefy speakers. But there isn't quite enough quality on show for our liking: the screen isn't punchy enough, the keyboard is disappointing and performance middling. For this sort of money, unless you desperately want the strange, super-wide screen, we'd opt for a 13in MacBook Air instead.
