Review Toshiba Satellite U500-115 Notebook

 

CULV? No thanks! Currently, an undaunted trend towards smaller no

Felicitous design; Very good case stability; Extensive interfaces equipped; Lavish keyboard; Bright display; Good 3D-performance; Low case heating

Partly disadvantageous placement of interfaces; Mediocre contrast and viewing angle stability; Sound quality below average; Limited battery life

First and foremost, probably the Dell Studio XPS 13. Furthermore: the soon to be released HP Envy 13, the Apple MacBook Pro 13, the Sony Vaio SR41, and the LG P310 with Geforce 9600M GT graphics card!

Toshiba Satellite U500

 

Toshiba's Satellite U500 wants to be portable and powerful, which has a negative impact on both the battery life and the weight. Still, if you need power in a petite package, the U500 might do it for you.

Bright screen, Textured exterior gives a sense of quality, Eco mode gives an excellent idea of exactly how much power you're using

A little hefty for its size, Battery runs short due to powerful hardware

Toshiba Satellite Pro U500

 

Capacitive touch screen works smoothly. Textured surface gives it a high-end look., Pro: Touch screen works smoothly. Textured surface gives it a high end look

No SSD option. Screen looks a bit grainy., Con: No SSD option. Screen looks a bit grainy

The Toshiba U500 is about affordable multi-touch. The included Microsoft Touch Pack works smoothly and shows off the responsive touch screen well. But while we’re bullish on Windows 7 touch, there aren’t a lot of apps that make good use of it yet; and...

Toshiba Satellite Pro U500 (PSU9NA-00600N) review: A great little business laptop, but it could use better battery life

Toshiba Satellite U500-1EX review

 

A feature-packed touchscreen laptop flawed by a poor keyboard and battery

Good screen ; Touchscreen input ; Decent performance

Keyboard ; Battery life

The touchscreen control works well and there is enough power on hand for general computing, but the weak battery life and poor keyboard lose it some marks

Style, quality and comfort on offer from this compact laptop

Nice design ; Reasonable battery life ; 64-bit Windows 7 ; Capacious hard drive

Toshiba Satellite U500-178 notebook

 

Toshiba's Satellite U500-178 is a highly portable laptop that's great for either home use or a life on the move. With a 13.3-inch screen, it's small enough to slip into most laptop bags, yet also packs in a powerful Nvidia GeForce G 210M graphics card....
