Installing Windows Vista build 5308 on the M400 –

PC Magazine – Miller Blog – March 2006 – For carrying back and forth, I’d still give the nod to the X41 tablet, which at 3.5 pounds does feel significantly lighter. But the M400 is very nice – and it offers the Core Duo possibility and that optical drive, which is very convenient.

Craig Pringle’s Hands On Review – February 2006 – Overall I am very pleased with the M400. The device is pleasant to look at and the design is very functional. Some of the value add software is excellent. Also – and very importantly – Toshiba clearly listened to it’s customers when they griped about the brightness and viewing angle on the M200 because the problem is well and truly gone on the M400.
