Toshiba Satellite U840W hands on review
Toshiba Satellite U840W – design and build
The Toshiba Satellite U840W looks squashed at first glance, thanks to its unconventional 21:9 aspect ratio, but pick it up and there's no doubting its premium quality and rock solid design. Crafted from premium brushed metal with faux leather strips for added grip, the stylish design of the U840W is enhanced further by rigid metal speaker grills.
Despite its svelte 20.8mm thin frame, the U840W feels fairly weighty in the hands, falling just shy of 2kg in weight, tipping the scales at 1.8kg. The premium build quality is however let down by the screen, which has a disturbing amount of flexibility, and felt worryingly soft and far too easy to bend. Either that, or we've inherited some Hulk-like strength overnight.
