Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 Review

Decent spec, but can it deliver?

The Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 is an affordable notebook that offers good performance for the price. Battery life is poor and the use of Windows Vista Basic limits its appeal. However, we liked the quality of the keyboard and overall usability of this...
