T130 is Toshiba’s thin and ultra-portable netbook/mini laptop. It comes with Intel’s new CULV (Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage) processor which gives excellent processing power with great battery life. Although the T130 is on the upper size scale of netbooks it still only weighs in at 1.8kg, plenty light enough to tote around all day. Its sleek and good-looking casing gives it a classic look.
The Toshiba T130 has 6 cell batteries by default, which give you up to 8 hours of work time, great for a netbook/notebook with such a comfortable screen to work on. The keyboard is titled at slight angle which makes it more ergonomic to use for long periods. It comes with a 13.3inch screen with full-width keyboard. All the keys are at the same place as we find in a normal key board.

The keys in the keyboard have a slight lip, which we found comforting while touch typing. The touchpad is wide with good response and the strips below the touchpad are quite well placed.
The SU2700 processor saves a lot of energy because it comes with only single processing core. HD video plays without a problem on this netbook and its integrated Intel graphics card gives good results with 3D-intensive games. The speakers also are of good quality.
Its 13.3 inch screen comes with 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution which we found comfortable enough to use for long periods of video viewing. Its screen can slant back to 45°. It comes with an HDMI output to help you watching photos or video clips externally on your HD TV.
Toshiba T130 netbook is a good portable mini laptop and is more than sufficient for day to day use. We’d even trade in our 15.6 inch lappy for this netbook.
