Move over Dell XPS, Lenovo X1 Carbon and Macbook!

Yesterday, I acquired an amazing piece of technology. A laptop smaller than any laptop today, and is still a fully functioning computer. A Toshiba Libretto 70CT.

Design

The Toshiba Libretto is a bit bigger than the Nintendo DS. You can carry it around in your purse, coat jacket or even pant pocket. It is extremely portable, and well made with hard plastics. It features a trackpoint on the display for the mouse and buttons on the lid for left and right click. The Libretto came with a docking station to allow other devices to be plugged in, like a floppy drive. The Libretto features a PCMIA slot to plug in like a modem. The battery in the Libretto can be easily swapped out.

Peformance

The Toshiba Libretto 70CT, has a full Pentium MMX processor, 32MB of RAM, 1.6GB HDD and 1MB of video and can handle any task thrown at it, from word processing to some gaming. It is amazingly robust for such a small computer from the 1990s.

Display

The display is 6.1″ big and has a 640×480 with True color and the display looks very nice!

Software

The Libretto 70CT comes with Windows 95 and has all the included preinstalled programs that come with Windows. My Libretto has a ton of software included with it like Microsoft Office.

Overall

The Toshiba Libretto 70CT is amazing computer for the 1990s and is still amazing today!
