Deal: £400 Toshiba Satellite U840W-10J Ultrabook

Many may argue whether this laptop from Toshiba, the Satellite U840W-10J, is indeed an Ultrabook given its screen size, a massive 14.4in. But no one can dispute the fact that it is a fantastic piece of kit and one which currently costs only £400 after a £100 cashback from Currys (see terms and conditions though), which is less than half the price it retailed for in December last year.

Its biggest selling point is that 14.4in screen which can display 1,792 x 768 pixels on a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio. That is around a third more than your average 13.3in resolution and more than the 1,600 x 900 found on many 17in laptops.

The rest of its configuration shows that this is indeed a much more expensive laptop being cleared out. It has a third generation Intel Core i5-3317U processor, one which is clocked at 1.7GHz with 3MB L3 cache, two cores, an Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a Turbo Boost of 2.6GHz.

There's also 6GB of RAM, a 500GB hard disk drive, a 32GB system SSD with Intel Rapid Start technology (which cuts boot-up time to 14 seconds) and much more.
