    Toshiba joined industry-wide efforts to bring the Ultrabook down to mainstream prices, by launching the Satellite U845t. The 14-incher features a lean feature-set to achieve its $799 price-point. It features 1366 x 768 pixels resolution, a Core i3 dual-core processor, up to 6 GB of RAM, 500 GB HDD-based storage with a 32 GB cache-SSD to speed things up, and connectivity that includes USB 3.0, HDMI, and SDXC. The Satellite U845t will be released to market on March 10th.

    Sorry, but for those specs my 8GB RAM overclocked AMD Quad core 750GB HDD and blu-ray player for less than $600 a bit over a year ago is still what I would choose hands down.

    Games? Yep
    Movies? Yep
    6-7 hours of battery life? Yep (Amazing what you can achieve with power tuning)
