On the very same day that Toshiba officially announced the T135 and T115 thin and light notebooks, the larger of the two has already been reviewed.
While the Toshiba Satellite T100 series are technically not netbooks, they come very close, especially the smaller 11.6-inch Toshiba T115 model.
The Toshiba T135 is the larger of the two machine at 13.3-inches, with an LED backlit LCD which has a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. Being a thin and light machine the T135 makes use of the CULV (consumer ultra low voltage) processor with either the Intel SU2700 single-core or SU4100 (1.3GHz) dual-core processor, along with a max of 4GB RAM and 500GB hard drive.
The Toshiba Satellite T135 is very stylish, and offers faster performance than most of it’s competitors, and also manages to do it at a very good price.
The thin and light laptop costs just $705, and performs very well, scoring higher marks in PCMark than the Acer 3810T and the Asus UL30. LaptopMag were very impressed with the Toshiba T135 over all, being impressed with it’s design, performance and price. Saying it is ideal for multitasking, web browsing, and productivity.
They were slightly disappointed with the cramped keyboard. The T135 managed to last a full 7 hours 23 mins during the battery test, which is long enough for most long flights.
Please note, the T135 is known as the Toshiba T130 in the UK.
