Satellite U840W: The World's First Ultrabook™ with an Ultra-Wide 21:9 Cinematic Display
The entertainment-optimized Satellite U840W offers premium features and design in an ultra-slim form factor. Designed with movie enthusiasts and productivity power users in mind, the Satellite U840W is the first Ultrabook™ of its kind to feature a 14.4-inch diagonal Ultra-Wide HD Clear SuperView display with a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio. This display is ideally suited for movie buffs looking to enjoy 2.35:1 movies in their original format – without the black bars commonly seen on most notebook displays. The distinctive display is also ideal for multitasking, providing more space for better split-screen viewing of word-processing applications, streaming videos, social networking, browsing and instant messaging. To make it easy for consumers to utilize the extra display space, the new Toshiba Split-Screen Utility offers pre-configured and custom viewpoint grids, supporting multiple windows on the display.

The Ultrabook™’s high-grade picture quality is complemented with the natural sound delivered through stereo speakers from Harman Kardon® and SRS Premium Sound™ 3D audio enhancement.

Precisely constructed of machined aluminum with luxurious soft-touch trim, the Satellite U840W delivers sophisticated styling and comfort in a lightweight package that is less-than-an-inch thick. An LED backlit raised tiled keyboard and ClickPad™ on the inside round out the refined design.
