Toshiba UK today celebrates 25 years of laptop innovation with the launch of three genre-defining mobile computers – the Portégé R700, the AC100, and the Libretto W100.

All three models have been specifically engineered to cater for the ever-evolving way in which computers are used.

The w100 looks great, like a massive DS. I see it as a success.

Off topic but the server seems to be quite slow, the pictures took at least 30 seconds to load.

I DREAD to see the price on that portege R700, business only, matte screen! Looks very nice. But as soon as they indicate "business only" you are talking $2000+.

Shiny screens of the satellite and libretto. No thanks.

PS. WHY do laptop manufacturers try to go with an "ultra-thin look" when they actually are not, ie. the picture of the satellite, it is quite clear the thing is thick like at the back, but they try to fake thinner with a ugly lip at the front. NAFF. It's like girls really: thin ones and plump ones can be great lookers and sexy. But thin on top with a fat ass? No.

The libretto is like a concept car. Great visually but it will fail to meet the demands of functionality that most people will have.

Typing on a touch screen sucks IMHO. :(

The libertto looks pretty awesome, although it will welcome all your finger prints.
Not bad on the other two either.

the dual touch screen would be awesome to have how ever a 7" touch screen is really quite small. also i would hope that the thing has atleast a 1024x600 screen res otherwise it might as well be crap in a hat
