Review Toshiba Satellite U940-101 Ultrabook


Cheap and light. First of all many ultrabooks are expensive. But

easy to maintain and upgrade; quiet; relatively cheap; good build quality; SSD cache; 2x USB 3.0

dark, reflective display; inaccurate hinges; very hot under load; spongy keyboard; plastics case

Comparable 14-inch ultrabooks are: Dell's Inspiron 14z, Lenovo's IdeaPad U410, HP's Envy 4-1000sg, Asus' VivoBook S400CA or the Wortmann Terra 1450 II.

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

The Toshiba Satellite U940 will display everything you throw at it capably, then, rather than brilliantly.

Toshiba Satellite U940-11N review


The slim Toshiba Satellite U940-11N Ultrabook is lightweight, inoffensive to look at and easy to fit into even a fairly small bag, as it measures just 21x340x239mm. Helping to keep the size and weight down is the absence of a disc drive, which has...

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