First Look: Toshiba Satellite U845W ultra-wide ultrabook

1:19 /

Count on crazy Toshiba to make a 14-inch ultrabook with a superwide 21:9 aspect ratio screen. We look at the U845W up close.

-- Scott Stein with CNET taking a look at the Toshiba satellite -- with eight -- five W. You wait for five w.'s one of several triple -- that Toshiba hasn't failed with the third generation Intel Core I series ultra book processors that -- just -- out. -- an ultra widescreen ultra book. Really putting the ultra and ultra with a fourteen point four inch 219 aspect ratio screen with 1792. By 768 resolution. That's big enough to put a lot of documents side by side and it is large enough to watch nearly any movie without any letter boxing whatsoever. Seems gimmicky but if you think about -- space you'll save with black bars. And the screen size that you're gonna get compared to -- you know maybe at fifteen entry and a sixteen inch screen. I could be worth the for movie watchers and maybe for those -- but -- documents side by side like that. And it is 99 which is not too expensive for a gimmicky technology like this can be more than gimmicky if you enjoy widescreen. I want to see how this is -- -- use it at point eight inches thick. It's not unreasonable and it's not as wide as you think it'll fit -- any airline seat. Reasonably comfortably I'm Scott Stein and that's it would be Toshiba satellite ready for prime W.
