Excerpt: One thing that I found to be more weird than interesting is the accelerometer of the Libretto that rotates only in one direction, I don’t know why they did that but to be sincere considering how cool this machine is, I could not care less. The speed on the Libretto I think that is great, it performed very well in all the tasks.
A little pricey but really cool to use and usefull too

Summary: It is a bit pricey but if you got the doe to burn then I would say go for it, I love it even put photoshop CS2 and it works great, it is not bad typing on either does a pretty good job with that, I even put a couple of older pc games on it and it works, a little glitchy as it only wants to use one screen and all but once loaded it plays smoothly. battery life is very short though so don't think you are going to roam free on it for hours.
Summary: In short, I bought this machine for the dual screens. I have wanted a dual screen e-reader since I saw the first prototype back in 2003. That prototype was bought out buy a major bookseller and never saw the light of day. Since then no one even seemed to consider a dual screen reader. I waited patiently for the Courier, but Microsoft saw fit to kill that before it hit the market also.
Truly One of A Kind - A productive attention grabber

Summary: I was looking for a compact, Windows OS, tablet PC and Toshiba fortunately decided to make this concept available to consumers on a limited basis. I am glad that they did. I currently use a Lenovo X60 Tablet PC. Windows compatiblity is a requirement for my work. However, I wanted a multi-touchscreen device and something lighter than the X60. The Toshiba Libretto W105 fit the bill.
Summary: This is an amazing item, i'm glad i didnt get anything defective. Mt libretto runs amazingly, the features are magnificent, and i love the sleek style of it! I noticed they go for way more on here though.... I typically buy everything on amazon because i can find it cheaper, but this product turned out to be the opposite. Toshiba's website sells this products for only 1,099.99 where as on here its going for 1,699.99.
Summary: I could not get the product directly from Toshiba as they 'claim' it's sold out. I called soon after they announced it. So it was a surprise. When I called, the folks on the phone were rude and not helpful at all. Once I got the product from Amazon at the same price as what it was directly from Toshiba. I called Toshiba to get help. That was really BAD experience. The product itself is fine. I had older versions of Libretto before and liked them.
Summary: Look I'm not going to sit here and say the Libretto isn't flawless because it is. But what device isn't? They all have issues it is up to you to decide if you can deal with it or not. Clearly the Libretto is pricey and not everyone will be able to justify purchasing it and that's fine you have no arguments from me that is totally understandable. The biggest complaint I have seen people talking about is the noise the fan makes.
Summary: After reading the reviews on Amazon for the Libretto W105 and after getting one myself I really don't understand how this wonderful UMPC got the reviews it did. Toshiba has put some serious thought into Windows 7 navigation with their add ins. The processor is zippy, and the ssd keeps pace nicely. Aesthetically this is a beautiful machine. As of now I've got it loaded with MS VS 2010, Enterprise Office 07, Blender, and Eve Online. All of which run perfectly.
Summary: I got mine last week..paid under $1000 from Amazon. I love this. I am 47 so I need to use my magnifying glasses to view the screen but I expected that. The touch is very responsive. I have no trouble clicking links in internet explorer or scrolling by swiping the screen. The keyboard is pretty responsive although you have to be in a different position directly over the keys..unlike a 3d keyboard where you type more at an angle.
