Toshiba Satellite U500

CNET
28 April 2010
  • Summary: Laptops with 13-inch displays are usually decent, as they tend to offer a great blend of performance and portability. But this isn't the case with the configuration of the Toshiba Satellite U500 that we reviewed, the U500-1EX. It's heavy, it's cumbersome and its gimmicky touch-sensitive display spoils the image quality so much you'll think there's something wrong with the laptop
  • Pros: Lovely brown finish; great keyboard; decent performance.
  • Cons: Touch panel spoils image quality; poor battery life.
