If you’re looking for an ultra book to do everything on, look to the Toshiba Satellite P840. It has a 14-inch TFT display that can display at 1366×768 resolution. It has a sturdy aluminum build that will protect against drops, and it weighs 1.96kg and is 24-29mm thick. It is powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel Core iS CPU and 4 GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 16GB). For the garners, you’ll have the NVIDIA GeForce GT630M on board. For your storage needs, it has a 750GB HD that stores the Windows 8OS. It comes with three USB 3.0 ports, two which are capable of charging other devices even in sleep mode, along with HDMI, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity along with an Ethernet port.
