Cheapest Ultrabook with touchscreen: £399.99 Toshiba Satellite P845T

Popular online retailer the hut sells the Toshiba Satellite P845T-108 Ultrabook for £400, a bargain for a device that carries a recommended retail price nearer to £700. With a thickness of 24mm and a weight of 1.96Kg, it just qualifies for the term "Ultrabook" according to Intel's specs.

The device comes with a 14in display with touchscreen capabilities and a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution, 4GB onboard memory, a 500GB hard disk drive, an Intel Core i3- 3217U CPU based on the Ivy Bridge architecture, Intel HD 4000 graphics, a dedicated numeric keypad, a webcam, built-in Harman Kardon stereo speakers, a backlit keyboard, SRS Premium Sound 3D and up to 6.5 hours battery life.

Expansion capabilities and connectivity options include an Ethernet LAN port, three USB ports, a DVD writer, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, VGA and a card reader.

Toshiba also bundled a number of applications like Nero 9 Essentials, Toshiba Photo Service, Toshiba Face recognition and much more. I'd advise that you get rid of them as soon as possible though because they might reduce your device's performance. You can read our review on the Toshiba Satellite P845T laptop here.
