Toshiba Portege M205-S810

 

Stylish convertible tablet/notebook handles both functions decently.

The Port¨¦g¨¦ M205-S810 excels at neither notebook nor tablet duties, but people looking for a convertible that handles both tasks adequately should give it a close look.

Toshiba Portege M200 review

 

Toshiba Portege M200

Light; uncluttered design; wireless On/Off switch; SD card slot; SXGA display.

Mediocre performance; pricey.

The Toshiba Portege M200's successful combination of notebook performance and tablet functionality make it one of the best on the market, despite its mediocre speed.

The Toshiba Port?g? M205-S809 is a solid choice for those who know they need an ultraportable notebook but aren't sure how many tablet functions they require. The $2,399 list price might seem high, but it's actually a good value considering the...

Attractiveness of its design may be debatable but there's no arguing it packs the right punch to meet the immediate needs of mainstream consumers.

What's a Tablet PC doing in Handheld Computing? We'll tell you what

If you want more functionality in your handheld and don't mind the higher price and larger size, check out this Toshiba Tablet PC. It comes in different versions, with the high-end M205 model adding an external DVD/CD-RW drive and a larger 60GB disk

Toshiba Portege M200 Tablet PC

 

Toshiba marries the Tablet PC concept to Intel's Centrino wireless solution. Is it a happy marriage?

SXGA screen plus solid graphics performance ; Wireless options include 802.11g ; Dual-monitor capability w/dock

Screen hard to discern in bright sunlight ; Relatively expensive

The M200 comes with a solid 3-year international parts and labour warranty. It is undoubtedly expensive, but we reckon with the complete package it offers, it's well worth it.
