Assessing small-biz laptops from Lenovo, Toshiba

We review the Lenovo ThinkPad SL400 and the Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 laptops.

We focus primarily on consumer laptops at CNET Reviews, but this week I looked at two well-designed models that target small businesses: the 13-inch Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 and the 14-inch Lenovo ThinkPad SL400.
