Its been a while since we have reviewed a Toshiba laptop and to be honest it has been too long because we love them. The Toshiba equium u400-145 laptop was however worth the wait. This Toshiba is aimed at the person with a small amount of space and is great for people on the move as it is a lovely compact size.
Toshiba have stuck to their guns with the design and clad this little beauty in the piano black finish that we have become used to. The U400-145 laptop has 2 gigabytes (2 GB) of ram which makes it more than capable of performing almost all tasks you could throw at it including office work, watching dvds, surfing the web and of course is capable of wireless connection to the Internet as well.
It has a 160 gb laptop which is plenty of room to store all of your files and music on the move. You might find laptops with a similar price with bigger hard drives but Toshiba have installed a 160 for one reason – to keep weight to a minimum making the laptop very portable.
The 13.3 inch wide screen is very crisp and delivers a very crisp picture, it performs well in all situations including playing DVDs and viewing photos – it definitely out strips other laptops of similar price and specification. The u400 runs on windows vista premium which in our opinion is great for the multi media user and casual user alike.
For people who use messenger there is a built in web cam. Toshiba have included a nifty face recognition feature that keeps the users face in focus automatically, the web cam works well with MSN messenger, yahoo and all the other instant messenger applications.
We really like the look of this little laptop which provides a mobile solution for people on the move whilst packing enough punch to keep home or office users happy – it is very versatile indeed. The best news is PC world have it priced at just £499 at the moment. Click below to view the full details.
