Ultrabook is on its way. Since 2011, ultrabook has been more and more popular. And more and more pc makers fast their steps to design and produce their own ultrabook. Toshiba will give the world a new ultrabook and it is called Toshiba Satellite U840. Recently, Toshiba revealed the specifications of the new Satellite member.
There's no word on the exact capacity of the six cell laptop battery, but with the U840 weighing 3.81 pounds you'd hope that means there's a significant sized laptop battery on board to provide long Toshiba laptop battery life.
As is reported, the U840 has a sleek looking aluminum-body that could suite well as both a business or consumer laptop. The Toshiba U840 features an Intel Core i5-2467M processor, Intel HD 3000 Graphics, 14” 1366 x 768 LED display, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 320GB of storage. Available ports include HDMI, microphone, headphone, and USB which includes one USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0s. But it is a pity that being an Ultrabook, there is no optical drive to spin any disks you own.
The Toshiba Satellite U840 Ultrabook has been listed on pcpartsltd.com. after Toshiba just last month claimed their next Ultrabook style laptop would not be ready until Q2 of 2012 and did not have a name. It's a little odd that just 3 weeks later the model has a name, specs and pricing firm enough to be put on an official website, albeit maybe a renegade Australia geographical division, as Toshiba USA still makes no mention of the U840 on their site. The pcpartsltd.com goes so far as to slap a price tag of $1,500 AUD on the U840. We do know that the lighter version SSD-only model of the U840 has a quoted toshiba battery life of 8 hours according to pcpartsltd.com
