Toshiba U200-199 review


Toshiba's U200-199 has the fastest processor in the group. It's ideal for those who need plenty of computing power in a small package.

The U200-199 is an unusual ultra-portable notebook. It's impressively fast in Windows applications but has a great battery, too. The ThinkPad and Compaq nc2400 are better for most tasks, but if you want a portable powerhouse, this is a good alternative.

Toshiba Satellite Pro U200-198 review


Toshiba's Satellite Pro U200 has a fantastic battery and a nicely designed chassis, but it's curiously underspecified in other areas.

You'll need to add another 512MB of memory to get the best from the Satellite, but this upgrade costs just under £40. With 1GB of memory inside you'll have a powerful computer with a great battery life that's ideal for use on the move.

Toshiba Satellite U200 Review


There were various reasons why I eliminated the other two. After configuring what I wanted with the Dell it was going to cost about $500 more and I couldn't justify it. Another thing is when I saw it in real life at my local Dell Direct Kiosk, I really...

Lots of power in a reasonalbly small and lightweight package ; Solidly built ; Good battery life from 6-cell battery

No dedicated graphics system ; No build-to-order systems in Canada

I am very happy with my purchase of the U200. I have no regrets about getting this unit and not choosing one of the other systems I looked at. The only one thing I would have changed was the fact that the only processor available was the T2250. I just...
