There's plenty to like about Toshiba's Satellite U500-178: it's very fast, portable and offers excellent connectivity, both wired and wireless. It also has one or two outstanding features, such as the backlit keyboard and the ability to charge USB devices even when switched off. In use, however, it's let down by mediocre battery life and a slightly sub-par keyboard, but if you don't mind buying an extra battery, then it's still worth shortlisting.
