Review Toshiba Satellite U940-101 Ultrabook


Cheap and light. First of all many ultrabooks are expensive. But Toshiba use a simple plastic case for the Satellite U940 and equip the 14-inch laptop with attractive components including a Core i5 and a dedicated SSD cache.

easy to maintain and upgrade, quiet, relatively cheap, good build quality, SSD cache, 2x USB 3.0, Despite the fact that the Satellite U940-101 costs less than 800 Euros (~$1065) and is relatively cheap, it is decently equipped: Core i5 CPU, plenty of...

dark, reflective display, inaccurate hinges, very hot under load, spongy keyboard, plastics case, Unfortunately Toshiba had to cut costs elsewhere: build quality and display cannot keep up with more expensive competitors like the Asus UX31A. In...

Toshiba Satellite U940 Ultrabook Review


A dream come true for gaming ultrabooks?

Decently powerful processor; Great graphics card for an ultrabook; Nice backlit keyboard; Impressive SSD caching

Plastic body feels cheap for an ultrabook; Tacky mousepad; Tons of bloatware

There’s very little to fault with the Toshiba Satellite U940, because for its price, it does a lot of things right. If you’re in the market for a semi0gaming ultrabook, the Toshiba Satellite U940 should be at the top of your list.

Toshiba Satellite U940


Toshiba's mid-priced Ultrabook offers a decent amount of bang for your buck as well as a few distinctive design touches

Decent performance, SSD as standard, One or two quirky design touches

Poor TN display, No touchscreen, Plasticky build, Average battery life, No discrete graphics card

Toshiba Satellite U940-11N review


This little laptop packs in plenty of power but similarly-priced ultraportables are more capable

This is a perfectly functional, fairly powerful, but rather dull Ultrabook. Fortunately, few people want a mid-range laptop for its excitement value. Despite a relatively poor keyboard, this is a good choice if you’re looking for a versatile laptop...
