Toshiba Satelite T110-121Rating:
A netbook bordering on a laptop on a diet. The Satellite T110 is a nifty little netbook which does everything a netbook was born to do, with some surprising extras, including battery life which lasts and lasts.
I’ve watched films via Cyberlink for 9 hours straight at the airport without needing a charge. Speaking of films, the netbook’s screen is a joy to use thanks to it being Full HD (for it’s size that’s impressive) and more than adequate brightness levels. Weighing in at 1.5kg, and being 11.6″, it’s ultra portable too.
The keyboard is full size (ok, number pad had to be sacrificed to make way for the full sized keyboard but that’s a pill I’m willing to swallow) having decent feel and responsiveness. Although only a singe-core CPU, the machine admirably performs simple tasks, and I tend to have a web browser, MS Word, MS Excel and Media Player or iTunes all working concurrently with no hiccups or obvious slow downs which may surprise some. Windows 7 also works nicely – so much better than Vista. It also happens to operate at a level barely audible.
The netbook itself is aesthetically pleasing, having a carbon fibre pattern, though it does enjoy our fingerprints!
Being a netbook, don’t expect it to be a gaming beast or have the ability to seamlessly perform multiple tasks simultaneously, but for what it is and what it’s designed for, it has more than met my expectations, and those of many others.
- Great (11.6
- Battery Life
- Full-sized keyboard
- Very quiet
- Speakers are VERY low volume - this can be overcome by a patch.
- Single-core CPU
- Toshiba's bloatware slows computer down - suggest uninstalling
- Fingerprint magnet

5/5 A great netbook doing everything it says on the tin with a little extra. After owning it for 9 months, I highly recommend it to all and sundry.
