Dell Products Cash-Back Toshiba's It has a wider than usual screen that's perfect for displaying movies shot in cinemascope widescreen format, for example, as it means those movies will usually fill up the screen perfectly, without black bars appearing at the top and bottom of the picture. It's an odd notebook to behold at first, but the more we used it, the more we liked it, and not just because of its shape: A widescreen notebook designed for movies With a native resolution of x pixels, the notebook's screen looks a little cramped at first. After all, it is the Toshiba Satellite U840W Eco height as a typical mainstream Ultrabook and you'll still need to do the same amount of vertical scrolling in documents and Web pages. However, the extra width opens up more opportunities when it comes to productivity.

It's a two-speaker system with a driver placed either side of the keyboard and the quality of the sound is clear, rich and acceptably loud for Toshiba Satellite U840W Eco thin laptop. Not only is it good for movies, it will also do a good job with most types of music genres. Our only gripe is that the volume control isn't overly representative of the sound level.

The changes in volume are dramatic, which means the volume gets very loud after about the 40 per cent mark, and then there is barely a discernible difference the rest of the way up.

Some distortion was evident when listening to music at full blast, and we found optimal listening to be at around the percent mark. Hooray for USB 3.

Metal has been used in the notebook's construction, but its exterior has a textured finish that provides grip and which feels absolutely Toshiba Satellite U840W Eco to hold.

As a bonus, it makes the notebook look very elegant.
