Excerpt: For a pretty small chunk of change you get a relatively light and pretty fast laptop computer with a very long battery life. Combined with a 13.3 inch monitor this makes the perfect travel companion for those that need full a full-sized laptop computer for working on the move. The extra size gives the feeling of spaciousness in the system, but without sacrificing the long battery life that makes netbooks so attractive.
Pros: Long battery life, “Just-right” sized monitor, Multiple networking options, VGA & HDMI video output
Excerpt: When Toshiba announced the Satellite T135 series, its line of thin-and-light ultraportable laptops last year, we were immediately interested for two reasons: performance and price. In a world of Netbooks toting endlessly similar Atom processors, having a higher-powered dual-core processor such as the U4100 in the T135-S1310 made a big difference in the amount of productivity we could expect in a slim laptop with strong battery life.
Excerpt: We're seeing more and more CULV notebooks hit the market these days. The growing sector of Consumer Ultra Low Voltage machines attempts to bridge the gap between lower cost netbooks and full-size notebooks, offering a more powerful chip than the ubiquitous Atom options we see in netbooks, but one that consumes less power than the mainstream Core 2 Duo processors we see in many full-size notebooks.
Pros: Great value, Excellent keyboard, Fantastic battery life, Multi-Touch TouchPad
Cons: Glossy screen sometimes has glare, Integrated Intel GMA 4500M GPU, Outer casing attracts a few fingerprints
Excerpt: Toshiba’s Satellite T135 is a new entry into the CULV (consumer ultra-low voltage) segment. If you don’t follow the notebook market then what you’ll want to know is that it’s a thin-and-light system that is on the thinner and lighter side of the market yet remains rather affordable. It’s a step up from a netbook without the expense of a true ultraportable, which would be powered by an expensive Intel ULV processor.
Excerpt: Toshiba had earlier launched the T135-S1300, although it does not match up to the competition. The upgrade to the S1310 was a wise move for Toshiba, and for you if you are looking for a budget thin and light without compromising much on the performance. The launch of the S1310 has been in perfect timing with the launch of the new Windows 7. Windows 7 has been well accepted and the market has been responding well to the new Windows.
Excerpt: A beautiful thin-and-light that is light on the wallet too. Toshiba one-ups itself introducing the T135-S1310, the bigger brother of the well packaged T135-1300. SO if you are browsing the market for a budget thin and light with good performance, read on, this might just make up your mind! The T135-S1310 is well priced at around $700. The system comes packaged with Windows 7 preinstalled. The Dual-Core ultra-low voltage processor works well with the system.
Excerpt: Lightweight and comfortable, the Satellite T135 performs well for office apps, and its battery life is excellent. But its jerky video playback and wimpy audio make it a poor choice for media mavens.
Pros: Lightweight, Stylish, Inexpensive, Excellent screen, Very good battery life
Cons: Unresponsive touch-pad buttons, Poor video playback, 3D performance, Weak speakers
Summary: There’s a lot to like about the Toshiba Satellite T135-S1310WH. For slightly less money than many of its competitors, it offers better performance and style. The T135 isn’t perfect, however; we’re not crazy about the keyboard and touchpad, and while the battery life is long, other ULV notebooks last even longer.
Pros: Attractive design, Fast performance for its class, Slightly less expensive than competing models, Strong wireless range, HDMI output,
Cons: Stiff narrow touch button, Long boot time, Weak speakers,
Conclusion: Gracias al procesador CULV de doble núcleo, ahora la Satellite T135-S1305WH de Toshiba tiene un desempeño comparable con el de sus rivales. Aún ofrece estupenda duración de la pila; pero ya es hora de que le renueven el diseño.
Pros: El procesador Pentium es de doble núcleo. De buen precio relativo. Excelente duración de la pila. Buena experiencia de tecleado. Ligera y delgada. Se gana el sello GreenTech.
Cons: El diseño requiere una actualización. Los botones del ratón están mal diseñados.
Conclusion: La Satellite T135-S1300 de Toshiba es una ultraportátil bien diseñada y de precio relativamente bajo que utiliza un procesador CULV de un solo núcleo y queda un poco a deber en cuanto a desempeño.
Pros: Relativamente barata. Bien diseñada pese al costo. Excelente duración de la pila. Liviana y fina. Consume la energía con eficiencia.
Cons: El procesador Pentium CULV limita el desempeño. Cuesta trabajo oprimir los botones del ratón.
