Toshiba shows off new ultrabook Toshiba has finally revealed the ultrabook they teased at CES, the Satellite U845.
The ultrabook will be the cheapest available, at a $699 MSRP.

For your money, you get a 14-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution and a 500GB hard drive. The boot drive is a 16GB SSD for faster start-up.

At the base price, your ultrabook is powered by a Sandy Bridge Core i3 CPU. Ivy Bridge will be available at higher price points. Ports include Ethernet, HDMI, VGA, two USB 2.0 sockets and one powered USB 3.0 connection. As with other Toshiba ultras, the keyboard is backlit.

The device is not necessarily light, however, at 3.8 pounds.

I love my new Asus with I7 2600, 6GB RAM, 1920x1080, 750GB 7200 HDD, Bang and Olufson ICE speakers and durable as can be with a tight-ass hinge for the monitor.........all of which I paid 400 more than this P.O.S.

Toshiba makes garbage now.

I had a Toshiba laptop a few years ago. Full of bloatware, and we had endless problems with it. It died in less than 2 years. I won't buy a Toshiba again.
