  • Excerpt: Toshiba wants to buck the laptop trend with the U500-1EX, eschewing the overall move towards Apple-like looks and super-slim design. Not to mention loading it up with touchscreen tech that some manufacturers just don’t seem too keen on. Does this make it a winner?
  • Pros: Smart design, good performance, multi-touch options
  • Cons: Poor display and battery life

  • Pros: Textured brown lid, sturdy build, cool chrome and backlights
  • Cons: Glossy keys, dull screen
