The Toshiba Satellite R840 is a high-end laptop similar to the Toshiba Satellite R830. The R840 differs from the R830 in two key areas: display size (the R840 sports a 14" display while the R830 sports a 13.3" display) and casing (the R840 sports a high-stiffness resin casing while the R830 is encased in lightweight magnesium). Otherwise, the two sport similar specs, including: a second generation Intel Core i processor, up to 8GB of RAM, a copper airflow cooling system and a 640GB hard drive with SSD options.
The Satellite R840's copper airflow cooling system allows it to house more powerful components in a smaller form factor without the risk of overheating or loud, excessive fan noise. Its second generation Intel Core i processor allows the Satellite R840 to easily handle day-to-day tasks with minimal slowdown while consuming less battery life than equivalent first generation Intel Core i processors. Meanwhile, the Satellite R840's SSD hard drive options allow for much faster read/write speeds and therefore improved system performance.
