The Toshiba Libretto 100CT is an attractive combination of portable performance and practicality. This notebook can be taken almost anywhere thanks to its small chassis and 2.35-pound carry weight. Its two-hour battery life is enough to get work done on-the-go (people work better under time constraints). Another highlight is that this notebook is fanless so you won’t have to worry about noise. Our dislikes include its fingernail-size keyboard keys and challenging AccuPoint mouse implementation.

The only other con is the fact this notebook is about sixteen years out of date … because it’s April Fools! Yes – for those who haven’t figured it out yet – the Toshiba Libretto 100CT was originally released in early 1998. It was an iconic computer for its day as most notebooks at the time were quite bulky. Although we wanted to have a little fun with our readers, there is another point; computers back then were built to last and the fact this Toshiba is running perfectly all these years later is proof!
