70% Toshiba Portégé M400 laptop Review
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Toshiba Protégé M400 works well and does what it sets out to do, however we are still struggling to see why you would want a WebTablet in the first place. As a ultraportable laptop however it's good, but because of the rotating screen (useful in presentations) there is some bulk here that you could shed if the tablet element isn't important.

90% Toshiba Portégé M400-S4032 - Toshiba’s excellent convertible gets even better with Core Duo and built-in EV-DO.
Source: Laptop Mag English
Solidly built and packed with software and features optimized for Tablet and notebook modes, the Portégé M400 has been our favorite convertible with a built-in optical drive. Now it’s even faster and more versatile. The S4032 model adds a snappy Core Duo CPU as well as built-in mobile broadband that uses Verizon Wireless’ EV-DO network, so now you can connect just about everywhere. The M400’s shell remains one of the best convertible implementations we have used. The keyboard, while not up to the firmness of a ThinkPad, has excellent feedback and a comfortable layout given the chassis’ compact design. Directional keys are nicely offset on the bottom right, and all the vital keys (Enter, Shift, and Backspace) are oversized. Input is not altogether perfect, however.

80% Toshiba Portégé M400-S4032
Source: PC Mag English
The Toshiba Portégé M400-S4032 ($2,200 street) is a terrific convertible tablet PC with a rotating display that makes writing on the screen fun. The second iteration of the Toshiba's M400 series, the M400-S4032 includes a significantly improved set of components. It's one of the first convertible tablets to integrate Verizon's EV-DO wireless WAN, and if prestige is what you're after, an Intel Core Duo processor is a step in the right direction. The look and feel of the M400-S4032 is similar to that of its predecessor, the Portégé M400-S933, with a magnesium-alloy chassis that makes it just as sturdy as the Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet and a graphite-gray exterior that looks serious enough for professionals. Toshiba could have made the 4.7-pound frame a little lighter, but the M400-S4032 is still easy to tote around, and it will rest comfortably on your lap.

80% A value-priced convertible good enough to use as your everyday notebook.
Source: Laptop Mag English
While the Lenovo X41 ThinkPad tablet remains the best convertible available in the sub-four-pound class, the Toshiba Portégé M400 is as good a hybrid as you'll find with a built-in optical drive. Toshiba delivers a strong laptop that will sometimes be used in tablet mode, but we expected a little more out of the company in terms of tablet ergonomics. At 4.5 pounds, the M400 is very travel friendly. It's 1.5-inches thick, but it feels solid. The shock-resistant protection features absorbers in the chassis and LCD as well as the hard drive. We love the M400's keyboard layout but wish the feel was more firm. The touchpad is a bit smaller than it needs to be, given the available space.

A good choice for those who want a crisp clear display and built in optical drive. Toshiba continues to provide good value for the price. The Toshiba Protege M400 looks good and it feels good in your hands.

With the design of a notebook and the flexibility of a tablet the Toshiba M400 with the Intel Core Solo Processor is reasonably prices and provides good performance. A perfect machine for the first time tablet user, road warrior or students on the go.

Source: PC Pro English
A powerful convertible laptop with features that business users will appreciate. Battery life is average, though, and it's a little too heavy for convenient tablet use. In spite of Microsoft's constant overtures to businesses and individual users alike, tablet PCs have yet to catch on in a big way. But the concept is appealing: a standard laptop that you can use in tablet mode is a useful thing to have if your work takes you to places without desks. The Toshiba M400 is the first convertible tablet notebook we've seen to sport a Core Duo processor. And the 1.83GHz Core Duo CPU at the heart of it, backed by 512MB of RAM, powered it to a benchmark score of 0.90.

Source: CNet English
The follow-up to Toshiba's prior-generation Portege M200, the new Portege M400 is the first convertible tablet PC to offer Intel's Core Duo processor as an option. The system combines its new CPU with some nice convertible-tablet standards, such as a swiveling 12.1-inch display and a swappable optical drive. Still, though the Portege M400 costs less than several competing tablets, it also delivers slower performance and shorter battery life than many of its rivals. If you need a tablet form factor at a low price, the $1,699 Portege M400 may fit the bill.

Source: PC Mag English
The Toshiba Portégé M400-S933 ($1,699) appeals to users looking for a laptop that has tablet capabilities and a built-in optical drive. The good news is that even with this built-in drive and increased improved processing power, this Portégé is practically the same weight as its predecessor, the M205-S809. Wrapped in a sturdy magnesium-alloy chassis, the M400-S933 tips the scales at 4.7 pounds—similar to the Fujitsu LifeBook T4020D (4.6 pounds), which also has an internal optical drive. The Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet (3.5 pounds) is better suited for those who work primarily in tablet mode—and can live without the optical drive.

This earnest laptop is a jack of many trades, with a good selection of features and relatively impressive battery life for untethered productivity. The price premium over a comparably specified regular laptop will be a good investment if you need a versatile laptop-cum-tablet that works well in either guise.

The Toshiba Portégé M700-S7002 ($1,799 direct) is a convertible tablet that competes with the Fujitsu LifeBook T4000 Series and the ASUS R1, offering a wide selection of bred-for-performance, standard-voltage processors.

There's no denying that the Portégé M700 is well specified and that Toshiba has priced it competitively for a fully featured Tablet device. However, it's bigger and heavier then most 12.1in notebooks, and it lacks the solid build quality of the business behemoth that is the Lenovo ThinkPad. The keyboard is particularly disappointing, but if you're planning to use it mostly in Tablet mode, that probably won't bother you. There's not much that's intrinsically wrong with the M700, but there's nothing that stands out as particularly good either. This latest Portégé definitely hasn't convinced me of the merits of Tablet computing, but to be fair to Toshiba, I doubt that anything could.

Although 2kg isn’t heavy for a laptop when carried in a shoulder bag, actually holding it in your hands is a different matter and, after 15 minutes or so, you’ll most likely be struggling. Combine this with the premium you’re paying for the tablet design and alternatives such as ultraportable laptops or UMPCs start to look more attractive.

Not only does this fail to compete with the best tablets in its price range, but it is also too expensive for those who would only occasionally spin the screen and hide the keyboard. Attractive to look at, but too expensive for occasional tablet use and not good enough to compete with the best dedicated devices.

With the Portégé M800-106, Toshiba delivers a 13.3in notebook that's attractive enough, eminently portable and stuffed with features. It also continues Toshiba's reputation for excellent notebook speakers. However, it's let down by an average screen and incredibly poor battery life, meaning that if you want to use it on the move you'll have to spend close to £100 more to get the desired performance. This, ultimately, makes the M800 disappointing value for money despite its other potential strengths, so Toshiba should be kicking itself for its penny-pinching since it makes an otherwise good notebook rather ordinary.

Overall, the Toshiba M800 is a winner in terms of looks and design. The white and glossy finish is just too attractive to dismiss and while I was out and about over the weekend, I spotted a pastel pink M800 and thought that was equally riveting — in a girly way. White, however, is the new pink and is neutral and non-gender specific. That said, the M800 is great for those in need of a stylish notebook that exudes an air of professionalism.

For a long time it was only Apple's laptops that came in white, but now they're ten-a-penny. Even the sub-£200 Eee PC and its gang of low-cost netbooks are clad in white these days. But despite lacking the exclusivity that it once brought, the finish looks stylish on Toshiba's latest laptop. A nod to Apple's iconic design from Toshiba, but perhaps the original is best.

While the performance of the Toshiba Portege M800 wasn't anything mind blowing, it makes up for this by delivering a smooth multimedia experience that should please the senses. The built-in FM radio reception worked surprisingly well and before you dismiss it as a gimmicky snag, at least the tuner does provide some entertainment on the go without stressing the battery excessively. Audio playback was also adequate, and was capable of clear and crisp audio results. Just don't except any hard-hitting bass from the tiny speakers. The M800 does have its fair share of concerns, though these are mostly minor that can be easily overlooked. For example, the screen was glassy, vibrant and clear dead-on, but suffered from mild color shifts and a washout when our eyes strayed off the vertical axis slightly. If you think about it positively though, that means you're ensured some privacy when viewing your screen. So like we mentioned earlier, there's nothing really glaring to be concerned on the M800. Retailing at a cool S$2299, the Toshiba Portege M800 will not burn that big a hole in your pocket unlike some of the other 13.3-inch ultraportable notebooks, so why not test-drive the M800 if you're looking for a stylish rig that delivers a pretty decent overall experience?

The Toshiba Portege M750 is for those who want regular notebook power and design plus a tablet screen. It fits equally well in vertical markets such as medical, insurance, etc. and on the college or work campus. The notebook is powerful enough for most productivity applications, multimedia tasks and some gaming. It has plenty of ports, and built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth make sure you are connected wirelessly. The optical drive also sets it apart from the ultra-thin tablet notebooks and the display is very good by tablet PC standards.

There's plenty to like about the Portégé M750-10K: it's well-built, great to scribble notes on and has a reasonably fast processor. However, at just over £1,200 including VAT, it's also pretty expensive, so you need to be absolutely sure you'll make full use of its tablet features before parting with your cash. And although it's clearly aimed at business users, we were hoping for a slightly more stylish design.

Still alive yet often ridiculed, tablet PCs haven't exactly had the easiest of times since their conception at the turn of the century. HP is attempting to breathe new life into the tablet by aiming its new TouchSmart TX2 at home users, but Toshiba's Portégé M750 takes a more traditional business-oriented approach. At £1206 inc VAT, the Portégé M750-10K doesn't come cheap, and at this price we were hoping for a better chassis. If you want to save a bit of cash, the M750-10J variation costs the least at £976, but with an Intel T5870 processor and just 1GB Ram, it's not something we're be tempted by.

The Toshiba Portégé M750-10K (£1233 inc. VAT) doesn't stray too far from the notion of what a Tablet PC should be and is clearly a machine designed for the businessman.

Tablet PCs are an acquired taste, and the Toshiba Portégé M750-S7202 has all the benefits users will appreciate in a tablet, as well as the inherent drawbacks to the genre—namely a bulky chassis and premium $1,799 price. If you really do use it as both a tablet and a traditional laptop, however, those negatives become easy to overlook. Done up in a dark-gray ("metallic flake titanium") color, the M750 looks both attractive and inoffensive. Measuring an inch and a half thick and weighing 4.6 pounds (without an optical drive in the modular bay), the M750 is similar in size and weight to other convertible tablets we've recently reviewed (such as the HP TouchSmart tx2z), but it's bulky compared with most 12.1-inch laptops. This convertible tablet features a multimodal touch screen that responds to both finger and stylus input. We just wish it weren’t so bulky.

Toshiba reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T7500:

The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.

T5750:

Entry level dual core processor based on the Merom core without Virtualization support and a low maximum temperature.

P8400:

Middle class dual core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. For high end gamer the performance could be not sufficient (for class 1 graphic cards).

P8600:

Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.


12.1: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

1.9 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.1 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


77.31%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
