Deal: £360 Toshiba Satellite U940-100 Ultrabook

Amazon is selling the Toshiba Satellite U940-100 Ultrabook for a mere £360, a price that is 35 per cent less than the product's SRP and one of the cheapest we've seen for an Ultrabook.

This is a variant of follow-up of the Satellite Z830 that I am using and weighs only 1.8Kg with a 20.7mm thickness.

It runs on a dual-core Intel Core i3-3217U processor clocked at 1.7GHz, with an Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU. Other features include a battery life of six hours, a 14in display with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution, 4GB of RAM, a 32GB system SSD, a 500GB hard disk drive, Windows 8, a SD card slot, three USB ports, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, Ethernet and SRS Premium Sound 3D technology.

Unlike its predecessor, this one misses out on the VGA connector that adorned the Z830. However, it does offer a removable battery coupled with the ability to change the hard disk drive and the memory fairly easily. Competition at this price is scarce. The Acer Aspire S3 is one potential rival as is the Lenovo IdeaPad U300. You can read our review of the Toshiba Satellite U940-10M here.
