During the Windows 8 launch in Singapore, a number of new laptops were showcased featuring Windows 8. While most of the laptops in the demo tent were ultrabooks or hybrid tablets, this one from Toshiba looked pretty interesting.

The laptop has an ultrawide display with an aspect ratio of 21:9. This type of aspect ratio is more geared towards movie/theater screens.
The Satellite U840w weighs up to 1.57kg and lasts 7 hours on single full charge. No suggested retail price indicated.
