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.

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.
