Toshiba Satellite U840W hands on review
Toshiba Satellite U840W – screen
The Toshiba Satellite U840W's party piece is of course its 14.4in 21:9 cinematic 1792x768 LED display, which lends to its uniquely wide form factor. Aimed at movie buffs, the 21:9 aspect ratio serves to eliminate pesky black bars, enabling you to watch movies as they were intended in their original aspect ratio.
The Dark Knight Rises trailer certainly looked impressive on the bright vivid screen and Toshiba's split screen utility provides an auto-resize function to let you quickly fit windows side-by-side, with a standard 16:9 window on the left, and a 5:9 window on the right. Granted, Windows 7 lets you snap windows to each side as well, but it's still a nice feature for heavy multitask fiends.
