Toshiba Libretto W100 Short Review

In order to celebrate the 25th birthday of their notebook products, Toshiba launched a special product called Toshiba Libretto W100.  Libretto, is one of the classes in Toshiba notebook, which is devoted to small-sized notebook.

Uniquely, the Libretto W100 has 2 screens at once, and has no physical keyboard, such as notebooks in general. When first opened, we will be faced with 2 screens, top and bottom, each measuring 7" wide, with a resolution of 1024x600. The screen can be opened 180 degrees. By default, the screen is "integrated" into a main screen. By pressing the button" keyboard "on the left below, which are made in a dedicated, then at the bottom of the screen will display a virtual keyboard.

The 2 screens are powered by the touch screen technology, so you no longer need any additional equipment such as mouse. But if necessary, has prepared an additional touchpad to move the cursor, again in virtual mode.

I had the opportunity to use this W100 Libretto for 30 minutes. The first impression was, his form was so tiny, a little bit heavy. When I tried the first time it features touch screen, my large-sized fingers facing difficulties to operate the touchscreen commands. Touchscreen technology brings motion gesture, so that like the Apple iPad, you can touch and slide your fingers to enlarge or shrink an image, or to rotate the image.

When tried rotated clockwise, the Toshiba Libretto W100 screen immediately change its position in line with positions such as reading books, in other words the motion sensors are buried in this product.

One disadvantage I found is its internal speakers, a sound which is very soft. To overcome this problem have been provided plug 3.5 "for the earphones

Broadly speaking, the Toshiba Libretto W100, in which embedded possessor U5400 (which is claimed to save energy), OS Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, and 62 Gigabyte Solid State Drive, can be a friend in your journey or when you're relaxed, mainly because of its so tiny portable, and relatively long battery endurance because Toshiba Battery 8 Cell buried in it.
