Toshiba held a bit of event in Australia and talked about their coming line-up including the Hershey's-Kiss-sized Libretto U10 and the Qosmio U20. They also talked about their sales numbers: 11K sold in 1985, 7 million in 2005. You've come a long way, baby!
Generally, I like Toshiba's work. Compared to other well-known Japanese brands—er, brand—a lot of the Toshiba notebooks have a nicer suite of software and some very interesting features. The original Qosmio pissed me off because I had to carry it home once to review it and it weighed about 500 pounds but hopefully these newer versions will be lighter. Or then you can get the U10 and hide it under your hat.
