Our Score:


Battery life doesn't match the application performance. They results are not quite awful, but for a portable laptop the U500 needs to last longer.

A good detailed review as ever. Will you be covering the newly released Toshiba Satellite T130-13K any time soon?

I have been using the Satellite pro version of this laptop and could hardly be more satisfied.

Given the performance level and the short battery life it is almost like having a highly portable DTR with a convenient price tag.
