With a price around the £500 mark, the Toshiba C660-171 might not be the most expensive device on the market, but a poor keyboard and dissapointing battery life make it very difficult to recommend.

It's hard to like the Satellite Pro C660-171 when it offers so little for its asking price. Splashing out a little more on the Acer Aspire 5741G or Dell Inspiron 15R will pay greater dividends.
