The best Ultrabook in town now costs £440: Meet the Toshiba Satellite Z930-13N

Sometimes, stars align in the sky and someone somewhere wins a lottery. Sometimes as well, Currys gives a £100 cashback on any laptop costing more than £499 as it is doing right now (you need to be very attentive regarding the terms and conditions as they are not as straight forward as one would think).

Currys sells the Toshiba Satellite Z930-13N Ultrabook with Windows 8 for £440 after that cashback. It is a great laptop, I should know as I use its predecessor, the Z830 on a daily basis. Note that this is a refurbished model.

This is a laptop that's only 16mm thick and weighs 1.1Kg. Once you lift it and carry it around, you really don't want to try anything else.

It comes with a third generation Intel Core i5-3317U processor clocked at 1.7GHz with 3MB cache and two cores, 6GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, a 13.3in display with a 1,366 x 768 resolution, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0, three USB ports, VGA, HDMI, an 8-cell battery that can power the device for up to eight hours and much more.
