August 31, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

To enhance its product line with a range of Windows 8 compatible devices, Toshiba has rolled out a set of exciting ultrabooks and notebooks.

The major portable devices in this list are the Satellite U845W, Satellite U945, and Satellite S955. Waiting for an October release, these devices are designed to optimize Windows 8 functionality.

The Satellite U845W is the world’s first laptop to play with an ultra-wide 21:9 cinematic aspect ratio (1,792 x 768). Taking advantage of the additional screen real estate, Toshiba has included a split screen utility with pre-configured and custom viewpoint grids that support multiple windows in desktop mode.

Display technology aside, the U845W features Ivy Bridge-based Core i5 and i7 processor options, 500GB hard drive + 32GB SSD cache (or 256GB SSD), 6GB of DDR3-1600 memory, Harman Kardon stereo speakers, three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, 1.3MP webcam, memory card slot, and various other hardware utilities.

The Satellite U945 is an Ultrabook for everyday productivity and entertainment. Weighing less than four pounds and measuring less than 0.8 inches thin, it offers all the performance of a conventional PC but with slimmer styling and less weight.

The key features of this ultrabook are: 14-inch diagonal HD TruBrite display, 3rd generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processor, Fast DDR3 memory, 2 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0 ports, USB Sleep & Charge, HDMI port and a Memory Card Slot.

The Satellite S955 series is less than an inch thick giving it Ultrabook-like dimensions while maintaining its sophisticated audio and video capabilities for a high-definition experience at home or on the go.

It has a 15.6-inch diagonal HD TruBrite display, 3rd generation Intel Core i5 processor or AMD A Series Accelerated Processing Unit. It comes with 750GB hard drive and up to 8GB of DDR3 memory. The device also sports 2 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0 ports, along with a memory card slot.

Though Toshiba is yet to announce the price tags of these devices, they are  expected to roll out on October 26.
