If you’re a film buff in the market for an ultraportable laptop, reviewer Loyd Case of PC World writes that Toshiba hopes it may have a laptop for you with its Satellite U845W:
The U845W ultimately shapes up as an executive toy rather than as a serious attempt to address the needs of mobile film buffs. The 21:9 display comes across as a gimmick, especially when you factor in the omission of Blu-ray even as an option. You can always seek your own external Blu-ray drive, but this system cries out for better widescreen movie sources. In addition, the display quality fell short of my expectations. And for me, the excellent audio quality didn’t overcome the system’s deficiencies.
