The Toshiba Satellite U845-S402 14" Notebook Computer has an ultrathin and portable design. Its sky silver brushed aluminum chassis is only 0.79" thin and weighs just under 4 pounds. The premium raised tile keyboard, which is also silver, has spill-resistant keys. The ClickPad pointing device supports multi-touch control for precise navigation.
The 14" TruBrite widescreen display is backlit with LED lamps, which brighten faster, use less power and provide better image quality than their CCFL counterparts. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is also the standard of HDTVs. The 1366 x 768 native resolution is supported by integrated Intel HD graphics and can play 720p HD content natively.
The system is powered by a dual-core 1.4GHz Intel Core i3-2377M processor. It also has 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 516GB of hard drive storage (a 500GB 5400rpm hard drive and a 16GB solid state drive), a multi-in-1 media card reader, 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers with SRS Premium Sound 3D technology. Windows 7 Home Premium (Upg to Windows 8 Professional at $14.99) is the installed operating system.
