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.

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'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
