Toshiba Satellite T135 Win 7 CULV Notebook Review
Source: Hot Hardware English
Although a quick glance at the benchmarks in this review might lead you to believe the Toshiba T135 didn't fare so well, keep in mind that many of the reference machines in our charts are priced higher and aimed slightly upmarket from the T135. Given this, the T135 really scored pretty well and held its own in most respects. During our tests, the T135 remained cool and quiet and performance was very acceptable for the price of the machine.

Toshiba Satellite T135, at $709, has a lot of offer consumers. It’s portable and versatile, while remaining affordable, and it’s a competitor in the CULV field. At this point the CULV market isn’t packed, but there are some other strong players, including systems from MSI, HP, Lenovo, and Asus that are appealing. Amongst these the T135 mostly stands out for it’s pricing, but this comes along with some troublesome issues such as the weak speakers and floppy hinges. In total these might have consumers wishing they had spent a bit more. Even so, it’s a good computer at a nice price so it’s worth investigating if you need portability on a budget.

How much of a difference does a single-core versus dual-core ultralow-voltage processor make on a thin-and-light these days? You may not be paying attention under the hood--and that's not your fault, because it's hard to notice the differences based on processor name and Intel sticker-logos--but you should know that it makes quite a big difference indeed. Toshiba's slick entry into the thin-and-light laptop world is timed for Windows 7, but if you're going to get one, make sure it's the dual-core T135-S1310, and not its single-core cousin.

The Toshiba Satellite T135 performed well in our tests, being very lightweight and portable, while still providing excellent battery life. With battery life lasting over 8 hours, this ultra-portable has what it takes to stay working over a long flight or during a day of classes. The design was very attractive, and offered in multiple color schemes to best match your personality. Build quality was very good, with only one area that flexed and creaked when pressed. The only real downsides to this notebook are its laggy touchpad which seems to be driver related, and the hard drive bay secured with Torx screws

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. 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.

This lightweight notebook offers good performance and a stylish design but the ergonomics could be better. There’s a lot to like about the Toshiba Satellite T135-S1310WH. For slightly less money than many of its competitors, it offers better performance and style. The T135 isn’t perfect, however; we’re not crazy about the keyboard and touchpad, and while the battery life is long, other ULV notebooks last even longer. Overall, we prefer the ASUS UL30A because it lasts almost 10 hours on a charge, and offers better ergonomics and 180GB of more storage space for even less money ($679 street price). Nevertheless, the T135 is a strong choice for people looking for an inexpensive ultraportable.

The Toshiba Satellite T135-S1310 will get your attention—and keep it—with a gorgeous red design, the shiny new Windows 7 operating system, and fly-across-the-country battery life. As Toshiba's entry into both the Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage (CULV) notebook and Windows 7 markets, this stylish, ultra-thin notebook fills the gap between netbooks and larger, higher-performance laptops in both price and performance. Lightweight and comfortable, the Satellite T135 performs well for office apps, and its battery life is excellent. But its jerky video playback and wimpy audio make it a poor choice for media mavens.

Toshiba, let me officially welcome you to the CULV party. Today, the company unveils its not-quite-netbooks T100 line. But get this, the baseline models (the T115) in this notebook series start selling at $449. That's right, this thing is about 50 bucks more than Toshiba's chart-busting netbook, the NB205-310. The sweet style and beautiful screen will draw you in, but check the T135's keyboard for yourself before you buy.

Despite being a latecomer to the netbook market, Toshiba found success in the seemingly cut-throat niche. This time, it didn't wait as long to enter the increasingly popular CULV-laptop segment of the market. (CULV stands for consumer ultra-low voltage CULV processor.) Like all other CULV-equipped laptops, the Toshiba Satellite T135-S1300 ($600 street) runs on a low-powered processor and measures less than an inch thick. The Toshiba Satellite T135-S1300 is a well designed, inexpensive ultraportable that uses the single-core CULV processor and comes up a bit short in performance.

Sometimes, it takes a good retail excursion to find a deal that isn't otherwise possible. Case in point: the Toshiba T135. While we have already reviewed two different versions of Toshiba's Windows 7 entry to the thin-and-light laptop landscape, we were pleasantly surprised by this retail-only configuration. This is not uncommon; many of the configurations you see in stores are subtle tweaks of models that manufacturers sell online, trading flexibility for a better price. For a budget Windows 7 thin-and-light that won't need to recharge often, you could do a lot worse than the Toshiba Satellite T135-S1309.

Like all other consumer ultra-low voltage (CULV)-equipped laptops that came before it, the Toshiba Satellite T135-S1305WH ($649.98 list, available at Staples) measures less than an inch thick and runs on an ultra low-powered processor. Thanks to the dual-core CULV processor, the Toshiba Satellite T135-S1305WH now has performance on a par with its peers. It still gives you great battery life, but it's time for a new design.

Toshiba reviews


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

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.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.

SU4100: Entry-level dual core processor for slim and light subnotebooks. Due to the Pentium name, the CPU may have less power saving features than Core 2 Duo processors.

Intel Pentium:

SU2700: Entry level Single Core CPU with less power saving states as the Core line and because of the slow clock rate (1.3 GHz) not very fast. Directly soldered to the mainboard and therefore for thin and light laptops (CULV class). 


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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.6 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.6 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


69.18%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
