Toshiba Satellite U405 Review (NotebookReview)

Toshiba Satellite U400 U405 Following the LAPTOP Magazine review of the Toshiba Satellite U405, has published Jerry Jackson’s review of Toshiba’s latest 13.3″ consumer laptop.

Jerry reviewed the U405-S2830, which is loaded with an Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 (2.1GHz), 3GB of memory, and a 250GB hard drive (this particular model can be found at Amazon for $1099.99 – the S2820 while quite a bit cheaper, has less memory and a slower hard drive).

The U400/U405 was quite a bit of an upgrade over the U300/U305 series (not just CPUs either, but the design as well), and has received a glowing review from Jerry, including an “Editor’s Choice” award for April of 2008:

The Satellite U405 is quite possibly the best 13-inch consumer budget notebook we’ve seen to date. Sure, the current configuration doesn’t offer dedicated graphics for playing the latest 3D games, but the U405 is the most balanced overall package we’ve seen in quite a while.
