The Toshiba Satellite U840t is an ultrabook that is designed for day-to-day productivity. It has entertainment focused features such as an HDMI port, good speakers, and touchscreen technology.
It has a rather nice design, which includes aluminum siding and a plastic and metal alloy enclosure. The lid features brushed metal gray. There is a small logo located on the cover. Overall, the design is simplistic and nice. The device is about two-inches thick and fairly light.
As mentioned above, this is a touchscreen notebook. You can interact with the system and do things like surf the web, flip through images, and play games with just a few swipes of your fingers.
You can still interact with the device the traditional way thanks to the keyboard and touchpad. The keyboard has a nice appearance, which includes square buttons located a convenient distance from one another. The touchpad, with its matte finish, is fairly large and offers accurate navigation.
The 14-inch display is a high definition model with a resolution of 1366×768. It features IPS-matrix technology, which means you can expect wide viewing angles and high color contrast. You can also view the screen clearly outside without having to worry about glare. If the 14-inch display isn’t large enough for you, you can connect the ultrabook up to another display, including HDTVs.
Another great thing about the Toshiba Satellite U840t is that it’s equipped with a good amount of storage space. If you like to download a lot of multimedia, you can keep it store on the 500 GB hard drive. The system also comes with a 32 GB Solid State Drive, on which the applications you use the most are automatically stored for faster startup times.
This Toshiba ultrabook comes with everything you need for setting up a video chat, including a quality webcam and speakers. The studio speakers come with SRS Premium technology. This puts them on the same level as quality desktop speakers.
Syncing between devices is no problem thanks to the USB ports the notebook comes with. It comes with standard USB ports and 3.0 ports both. Back up important files and documents on external devices if you need to.
The graphics are about what you would expect for an ultrabook: Intel HD 4000. While not the most powerful graphics option, it’ll still allow you to stream videos and audio. Additional hardware includes 6 GB RAM and Intel Core i5 processor (1.6 GHz).
Overall, the Toshiba Satellite U840t is a quality ultrabook that’s available at an affordable price. Whether you want to leave it in the house or take it with you everywhere you go, it comes with more than enough to keep you entertained and productive.
