Excerpt: I have for reviewing a very interesting device from Toshiba and that is the Libretto W105. This is a very unusual laptop with two 7 inch touchscreens that are capacitive. This model uses a virtual keyboard which makes it even more interesting.
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.
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.
Simply the nicest and most useful gadget I've ever owned

Summary: The Toshiba Libretto W100 (the W100 is the Japanese version with a WiMax radio and the W105 is the practically the same hardware sans WiMax sold in the US) is most exotic computer form factor to be released in years, Toshiba after all branded it a "concept" device. Whatever it is called or compared to (Nintendo DS, Courier, iPad) the W100 is a mix of the tried and true spiced with uniqueness while delivering a compelling product.
Summary: IMHO it's not worth 1100 bucks. The machine runs VERY hot, bad battery life, speaker is useless and the fan is very noisy. I regret that i purchased this machine. I should have waited for reviews before making my purchase.
