Toshiba Satellite T135-S1300

The Good Lightweight body, Windows 7 preinstalled, very good battery life.

The Bad Underperforming single-core CPU, weak speakers.

The Bottom Line Toshiba's slick entry into the thin-and-light laptop world is timed for Windows 7, but the Satellite T135-S1300 isn't as multimedia-savvy as it seems to be at first glance.

Toshiba Satellite T135-S1300

Thin-and-light laptops may look similar, but they're not all made the same. It's a deceptive world out there, especially since many thin-and-lights trade performance for a stylishly thin chassis, all while marketing a mainstream look that suggests performance equal to other notebooks.

The Toshiba T135 is part of Toshiba's new T100 line of optical-drive-free thin-and-lights, losing thickness in exchange for a portable design competitive with products such as the Asus UL30A-A1 and the Acer Timeline 3810T. It's set to debut on October 22, when Windows 7 launches its way onto retail shelves and into PCs everywhere.

Unfortunately, while the design tries hard, it simply doesn't provide the power that its Windows 7-running, HDMI-port-touting countenance suggests. This is not a multimedia machine on a budget; rather, it's a slim but underpowered single-core 13.3-inch laptop.
