Toshiba Libretto U100 Review (pics, specs)

 

Unlike most of the incredibly-advanced-Far-Eastern-technology-that-we-will-never-see-over-here (IAFETTWWNSOH), Toshiba is bringing its latest Lilliputian Libretto, the U100, to America. The Libretto ultra portable notebook line has been marketed in...

I had a hard time reconciling what would be the best way to review the Toshiba Libretto U100: is this a personal computer or a business machine? I can think of many reasons to own one. If you are a business traveller - especially if you are the type of...

Toshiba Libretto U100

 

The Libretto's screen is by far the biggest in this crop of miniature PCs. It sports a 7.2-inch widescreen with Toshiba's TruBrite technology. It looks just as nice as the Sony U750P's XBrite screen. Its high resolution (1280-by-768) is great for DVD...

Fingerprint reader. Excellent battery life. 60GB hard drive. Great little widescreen

Poor placement of the pointing stick. Small keyboard

It looks like nothing more than a clamshell PDA, but inside you'll find a fully functional Microsoft Windows XP operating system, a fingerprint reader, and a 60GB hard drive.

The New Recommendation: The Yulong U100 USB DAC

 

I find far more pluses than I do minuses. So, if you can handle the extra $60, and you don't need the extra functions on the Audinst, then the Yulong U100 is the box you should get for your headphones. Gears used for review: Headphones: Sennheiser...

All pluses and minuses considered, I think I find far more pluses than I do minuses. So, if you can handle the extra $60, and you don’t need the extra functions on the Audinst, then the Yulong U100 is the box you should get for your headphones.

Is Toshiba's U100-S213 The Ultra Lightweight Laptop Champ

 

Toshiba's Libretto U100-S213 is the smallest and lightest ultra lightweight laptop we've ever tested. That said some questions must be raised about the impact of smallness on usability. To answer these questions, we compare the U100 with three other...

With the exception of battery life, the four computers discussed in this article perform more or less equally. So, if you want to buy an ultra lightweight laptop consider the other features and related issues I've discussed here. Most of the strengths...

X-bit labs - Toshiba Libretto U100-S213 Review: Size Does Matter

 

If your priorities are compactness, low weight, long battery life and high performance you should definitely take a look at a great compact solution from Toshiba. This notebook will be most useful on trips, or can be easily turned into a compact...

Putting it briefly, the Toshiba Libretto U100-S213 is a good compromise between compactness and functionality. It is not free from typical drawbacks of super-compact notebooks like small keys on the keyboard, a small screen with a big resolution, and a...

Consumer review by:

Great handtop computing

 

Seems like the screen could have been an inch bigger without increasing overall size.

Tiny size and weight; great battery life; virtual desktop functionality; amazing screen for 7.2", Fine performance; remarkably good keyboard (about 3/4 normal size); many spiffy features; very cool to carry around

A bit pricey

Toshiba Libretto U100 Laptop review

 

Toshiba has been designing and manufacturing notebooks for 20 years, starting with the T110 in 1985, which weighed in at over 7kg, had a battery life of 60 minutes and green LCD screen. To celebrate, the company has chosen to reinstate one of its older...

Super-compact, great value

A little too small for main computer

Highlighting many of the skills that make Toshiba a marker leader, the Libretto is a powerful example of miniturisation

The Libretto's miniature size and light weight will attract veterans of the road who want to travel without being encumbered.
