Reviews and Articles:
infoSync World – January 2006 – ….this is an impressive piece of hardware.
CNET Asia – December 2005 – Toshiba’s tiny 1kg Libretto U100 may be just too small for many people to use effectively, but it’s a triumph of design and engineering. The only hefty thing about it is the price tag.
HardwareCentral – November 2005 – 2 stars out of 5 – When all is said and done, we admire the Libretto U100’s sensational space utilization — rivaled only by palmtops like the OQO 01+ or Sony U Series with PDA-sized screens and BlackBerry-style thumb or plug-in keyboards. But though the Toshiba’s screen and keyboard top those products’, they’re just too puny to live with for long.
TrustedReviews – October 2005 – 7 out of 10 – Very In-depth – The Libretto was a landmark product when Toshiba launched it back in the late nineties, but unfortunately it hasn’t worn well.
It Reviews – October 2005 – As with the original, the latest Libretto will make you think about the uses you could put it to, but perhaps the most limiting factor is the price.
The Register – August 2005 – 80% – While you won’t want to use the U100 as your main machine, for use on the move it’s a powerful and flexible portable with an impressive battery life for its size.
PC Magazine – April, 2005 – Editor’s Choice – 4/5 Stars – But if you just need something you can toss in your bag to keep you in touch and caught up while on the go, the Libretto should be your tiny notebook of choice.
