Ultrastylish from every angle, the Toshiba Satellite U845W Ultrabook (model U845W-S410) is designed with both movie enthusiasts and productivity power users in mind. Thin and light, yet sturdy and elegant, the U845W is precisely constructed of machined aluminum with a luxurious soft-touch trim for sophisticated styling. This entertainment-optimized Satellite U845W is the first Ultrabook of its kind to feature a 14.4-inch diagonal ultrawide-HD TruBrite display with a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio.

And with Toshiba High-Speed Start and Intel Rapid Start Technology, you can be sure your desktop and programs are up and running right where you left off--in a flash.

This laptop runs Ubuntu 12.10 well (touchpad is a bit over-sensitive). At home I keep it plugged into a 24 inch monitor. On the road it's battery life is great (6 hour+). The really weird screen size is absolutely perfect for airplane travel. It fits on the tray and because it isn't too tall you can actually open it up to get a comfortable viewing angle. After working on a massive screen at home, it was always a bummer to go to a little 14 inch (or smaller) screen. But the high resolution wide screen means I can continue to have tons of tabs and lots of split windows for editing code.

Its CPU matches new macbook airs. It has 6GB of ram. It's really light and thin. It is almost as portable as a netbook, as powerful as a desktop and the screen makes it trump everything else when it comes to travel. I bought mine for $650 after lots of comparison shopping. Highly recommend.

[UPDATE: Note -- there was a strange problem with this notebook which also affected another reviewer here where the notebook "died" and would not boot. The battery would charge, but pressing the power key would do nothing. Of course, you could return to Toshiba for warranty service, but I happened to try something which apparently has worked to "fix" the problem (at least so far - about 2 weeks with no issues as I post this). Since you cannot remove the battery, I simply left the laptop in a closet for a couple of months to let the battery drain (which it did). [I had earlier gone through various other efforts, charging the battery, etc. which did no good). However, once I let the battery drain completely and then plugged the A/C in, the laptop booted normally, the battery charged up, and everything appeared fine. I immediately did all the updates available, in the hope that whatever caused the problem was software related there have been some issues with sleeping and hibernation on laptops with Windows 7 in the past). After that, I have used the laptop normally. Put it into sleep mode, shutdown, on A/C, on battery power, and so forth and so far, so good. Fingers crossed. Based on this, I have restored my original 5 star rating on this excellent laptop.]

*** 2014 March 14 Update: The above problem happened again. It seems if you let the battery drain down to "critical" and the laptop hibernates, something goes wrong and it won't "wake up" again, sometimes. The power button won't turn it back on. But I found a better solution. Charge the battery up (the lights on the front still will work and indicate charging (red) and full charge (green)). Once it's charged.

Pros: good speed, fast start up, great (but not amazing) speakers and a really nice physical design.

Cons: short screen size makes it hard to view certain documents and websites; the screen has really terrible viewing angles and you can only see it if it is perfectly parallel to your face.

This was a decent laptop and I enjoyed using it for three weeks. Then it stopped working (would no longer power on). Dealing with Toshiba customer service has been frustrating as many of the representatives hang up randomly and their English is very difficult to understand. It will cost $25 to ship the laptop to their repair facility and I was warned that there is a chance my files will be wiped. Quite the annoyance for a laptop I bought just three weeks ago and only used lightly.

I'm very happy with this Ultrabook. It does everything I need it to do, and probably a lot more. But it's very thin and easy to stow in my briefcase, leaving a lot of room for other stuff. But the best feature is that it fires up very fast, so, if I want to use it for as little as 5-mins, I don't take most of that time waiting for it to be ready. At most, it takes 15-seconds to be ready to go. I'm a teacher, and move from classroom to classroom, so waiting around for a computer to get its act together isn't in the cards. This machine fills the bill!
