2013 has only just begun and we already have a bunch of interesting and powerful tablets and convertible hybrids. However, the good old laptop still does the perfect job both at home and at work. Digital Magnet presents a great everyday work and fun companion. This is Toshiba Satellite U940 Ultrabook.
Generally it’s very difficult to keep ultrabooks’ prices down because of the powerful hardware they incorporate. And thus, more often than not, design is where companies compromise.

This one is not an exception from that rule. Although the case is plastic the textured finish feels and looks really nice and elegant. The overall built quality is nice and doesn’t add additional weight. It is actually pretty light compared to the common weight in this class – only 1.7kg.
Although this machine runs the touch-friendly Window 8 platform it doesn’t come with a touch-screen configuration. The TruBrite14 inch display you see here works at 1366×768 pixel resolution and at a pixel density of 112dpi. It performs at the decent brightness level of 220cd/m2.
