Summary

Our Score:

7

With its 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo and 4GB RAM, the U400-189 should be fine for the majority of computing tasks, but the Samsung Q310 is appreciably faster in many areas.

How's it going to compare to the Samsung Q320?

When you buy a Toshiba laptop, don't register the warranty. Wait 6 months and then call Toshiba UK to register the warranty. When they ask the purchase date, just tell them a date almost 6 months after the manufacture date of the NB. To find the manufacture date, check the serial number. The first character will be 1-9/X/Y/Z and the second will be a number. The first number being the month (3 = march, Y = november) and the second number being the year (9 = 2009). So, if your serial number started 49 (April 09) Call them in October, tell them you bought it in September - voilla, an extra 5-6 months free warranty.

Has Trusted Reviews done a review of the Toshiba Satellite Pro U400? As I understand, this is a similar laptop without the annoying gloss everywhere. Has it got similar spec?
