When I saw this Toshiba U840W I got all excited. I love the 14.4 inch screen size which is equivalent to a 21:9 display. Rumor has it – the battery can last up to 10 hours. How true is this? This sleek ultrabook was built to be a head turner just by the looks of it (cinematic display screen and aluminum design). I'm just wondering when will this be available in the US and how much will it cost for?
