Review Toshiba Satellite U840T-101 Ultrabook


A bit late. Toshiba's ultrabook with touchscreen had been promised for the second quarter of 2013, but a test product only just reached us. An i5-3337U of the Ivy Bridge generation should ensure enough processing power and is supported by 8 GB of RAM....

High-performance ULV package, full performance even on battery, Tidy workmanship, Backlit keyboard, 8 GB RAM, Touchscreen ..., The performance stats of the ultrabook check out. Both CPU and GPU deliver good performance, even when the device is...

with mediocre swipe features, Display is too dark, Viewing angles are too unstable and cause color inversion too quickly, No Gigabit LAN, Heavy input devices, More light! The display could have been brighter, but the narrow viewing angles and the...

Notebookcheck's Best of June 2013 - Notebooks


Haswell. The name of Intel's new CPU generation has been branded in our minds. After meticulous preparations, we reviewed 13 test samples with the new chip in June. Initially, we focused on the Core i7. However, Apple's new Air comes with a Core i5. In...

In contrast to the Clevo contenders, the GT70 is fairly quiet

Review Toshiba Satellite S955D-S5150 Notebook


Slimmer, lighter, better? Toshiba has placed their notebooks on a

Thin and lightweight; Good Touchpad; Includes an optical drive; Low noise and heat

Flimsy construction; Weak CPU performance; Restrictive battery life; Frustrating keyboard; Glossy, unremarkable TN display

Where to go, then, if you’re searching for an ultraportable, affordable 15-inch notebook? Options remain unfortunately thin, with HP’s Sleekbook 15z and Lenovo’s IdeaPad S405 receiving mixed reviews as well. It might be worth saving up a bit more and...

Review Toshiba Satellite P845T-S4310 Notebook


Affordable Touchscreen. Throwing in a touch-enabled display on an otherwise standard notebook is becoming common due in part to the touch-focused nature of Windows 8. Is this inexpensive 14-inch touchscreen Satellite a blast to use? ...

Attractive aluminium case ; Good CPU performance ; Sensitive touchscreen ; Large touchpad ; Decent speakers ; HDD and RAM easily accessible

Lid sensitive to pressure ; Keyboard with soft touch and short travel ; Rather slow system performance ; Graphics performance reduced while running on battery ; Some ports not ideally placed for right-handers ; Glossy screen should be brighter for...

At $700, the P845T is one of the least expensive touch-enabled Windows 8 notebooks currently available

Toshiba Satellite Click review


It's no secret that PC sales are mired in a lengthy slump, while smartphone and tablet sales continue to climb. With that in mind, it's easy to see why PC makers are focusing on making convertible devices like Lenovo's IdeaPad Flex and detachable...

Premium-looking design ; Runs cool and dead silent ; Loud speakers in keyboard base ; Nice screen for a budget system ; 500GB hard drive

Second battery didn’t work in two different review units ; Awful performance compared to Intel Core-based systems ; Thick and heavy, as both a tablet and a laptop

While the $599 Click is an attractive detachable notebook, its performance is awful when compared with similarly priced systems. Also, the second battery failed to work in either of our review units.

Toshiba Satellite U845t-S4165


Zippy processing power along with a slender chassis and solid all-around performance come together in making the Toshiba Satellite U845t-S4165 worthy of serious consideration, though its limited storage capacity and so-so keyboard dampen its overall...

Agile Intel Core i5-3337U processor. Trim, attractive chassis. Responsive touch screen. Great battery life. Features Intel's Wi-Di technology

Cramped 128GB SSD. Only one USB 3.0 port. Keyboard flexes and yields shallow keystrokes

Although the Toshiba Satellite U845t-S4165 ($749.99 list) appears to be the latest entrant in an increasingly crowded field—Windows 8-equipped ultrabooks with touch screens, that is—its agile new Intel Core i5-3337U processor sets it apart from most of...

Toshiba Satellite U845t Review


At CES 2013 Toshiba had … not a lot to show. Like many other laptop manufacturers, the company had un-wrapped its newest models alongside the debut of Windows 8. Toshiba did, however, promise to add touch to the Satellite U845, an Ultrabook that we...

Elegant exterior ; Competitive battery life ; Excellent processor and storage performance ; Great value

Terrible keyboard ; Poor display quality

With just a few changes, Toshiba has turned an adequate also-ran into a clear winner.

Toshiba Satellite U845T-S4165 Review


With the Satellite U845T-S4165, Toshiba has successfully combined fast Core i5 performance, an SSD and a touch screen for a reasonable price. Best of all, this Ultrabook lasts 7.5 hours on a charge, outlasting most other touch Ultrabooks. Although the...

Lightweight design, Responsive touch screen, Long battery life, Fast overall performance

Keyboard feels shallow and flexes

Toshiba Satellite U925t Review


Like the Sony VAIO Duo 11 , the Toshiba Satellite U925t tries to marry a tablet and a notebook into one device, but it's not the most elegant solution. While we like that we can adjust the angle of the display, the sliding motion itself feels awkward....

Quick boot time, Adjustable screen angle, Fast, solid-state drive

Switching to tablet mode is awkward, Standard-definition display that's exposed when traveling, Short battery life, Runs very warm on bottom

Toshiba Satellite U845W review: an Ultrabook with a screen size all its own


More Info Toshiba outs Satellite U845W Ultrabook with 14.4-inch, 21:9 display (updated: $999 and up in the US) The Ultrabooks of Computex 2012

Powerful speakers ; Attractive design ; Decent battery life for a 14-inch laptop

Uncomfortable keyboard ; Flaky trackpad ; Display not compatible with most media

The U845W Ultrabook is the first laptop with a 21:9 display, but ultimately its odd, outsized dimensions are more of a nuisance than a boon.
