Review Toshiba Satellite T130-14T Notebook

 

Super Thin, Light and Mobile? "Even more mobile, more elegant and

Good battery life; Fairly feasible application performance; Elegant Slimline design; Interface variety incl. HDMI

Extremely smudge sensitive high-gloss surfaces; Intensely reflective display with average key data; Touchpad needy of getting used to; Max. opening angle only ca. 125 degrees; No integrated optical drive

There is a vast amount of similarly equipped 13.3 inch notebooks. For instance, Asus' UL30A, which has a considerably better battery life with a larger battery and bids somewhat better performance rates. Further models can be seen in "Similar Notebooks".

Toshiba Satellite T130 Notebook

 

Interested in a thin and light laptop that's not a netbook?

Battery life on the Satellite T130 is about average- we managed to get 4 hours out of it which seems to be quite a bit less than the 11 hour life that Toshiba advertises. Priced at AED 3,115/- (US$850), the Satellite T130 is decently priced for a thin...

Toshiba Satellite T130-11H notebook review

 

The Toshiba Satellite T130 presents a lightweight and highly portable notebook, packing more of a punch than a netbook, whilst not quite offering all the power that its bigger rivals offer. Supporting its remit as a portable machine, comes an...

Lightweight, battery life, build quality

Reflective keyboard, better use of the space could have been made, Fn shortcuts a little fiddly

Lightweight and portable, the T130 has both the battery life and sufficient performance for most who need to work on the move. Foibles are relatively minor with the T130 so for mobile workers, the Toshiba Satellite T130-11H is well worth a look

Toshiba Satellite T130-12N review

 

Not the most exciting CULV laptop but offers portability and a great battery life

Fantastic battery life ; LED backlit screen ; Build quality ; Sleep and Charge technology

Not one for multi-tasking ; Integrated GPU

Toshiba Satellite T130-11H - 13.3in Laptop

 

An Intel CULV CPU gives the Toshiba Satellite T130-11H over seven hours of battery life.

Connectivity is also a plus point. Among the HDMI, VGA and three USB ports is a 'sleep & charge' USB (on the left) that allows you to charge mobile devices even while the laptop is turned off. This is a common feature on Toshiba laptops and a very...

Toshiba Satellite Pro T130-15F - 13.3in Laptop

 

We take another look at Toshiba's 13.3in CULV laptop, but this time it has a dual-core CPU.

Like so many laptops right now the native resolution of the 13.3in display is 1,366 x 768 pixels. Unlike larger machines, though, this is a good resolution for a laptop this size as it's both readable and offers reasonable desktop real-estate. On the...

Toshiba Satellite Pro T130-15F review

 

The Toshiba Satellite Pro T130-15F may be an ultra-portable laptop aimed at businesses, but its appearance thankfully differs from the staid grey and black we're used to seeing on business laptops. The chrome trim and black cross-hatched pattern on the...

Toshiba's Satellite Pro is a good ultra-portable laptop with excellent battery life, but is let down by a poorly-designed touchpad.

Toshiba Satellite T130-13Q review

 

Being a 13.3in laptop the Toshiba Satellite T130-13Q is relatively slim, save for a large lump at the rear underside, which not only houses a rather capacious 61Wh battery, but also serves to tilt the keyboard into a more ergonomic position.

The Toshiba Satellite T130-13Q is a very nice-looking laptop. It's beautifully and solidly constructed, offers the same pixel resolution as its larger-screened competitors and delivers by far the best battery performance. Unfortunately, you'll have to...

Toshiba Satellite T130 review

 

The configuration of the Toshiba Satellite T130 that we were supplied with, the T130-13M, is the tortoise of the laptop world. While its hare-like rivals zoom around willy-nilly, it takes a more considered approach. That's not necessarily a bad thing,...

Long battery life ; Great keyboard

Trackpad on our review sample was terrible ; Pretty slow

Where the machine excels is in its ability to function away from the mains for long periods of time. Toshiba claims up to 11 hours is possible, although your mileage will vary depending on how CPU-intensive your chosen applications are. In our battery...

Toshiba Satellite T130-11H review

 

Toshiba's T130 is a slim ultra-portable laptop that uses one of Intel's new Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage (CULV) processors, giving it a battery life of almost eight hours.

Light and slim, but large enough for a decent keyboard, the T130 has the battery life of a netbook and far better single-application performance.
