Toshiba - Portégé A100


Rather than follow the more usual design path and create an ultra-portable with no drives bar a hard disk, and about two ports to its name, Toshiba has tried a slightly different approach with the Portégé ...

This is a sensible compromise between weight and functionality, but slightly let down by unexceptional performance and a couple of missing features.
