Toshiba Portege R700 Laptop
All those ultraportables using Intel's ULV Core processors just got taken to school: Toshiba's Portégé R700 is as light as a MacBook Air, nearly as powerful as a MacBook Pro, and measures an inch thick with a DVD drive. Standard.
Putting a full voltage processor in such a thin and light frame really is a neat trick, one that Toshiba accomplished in part with something they're calling Airflow Cooling Technology. And while most companies are stripping ultraportable notebooks of their DVD drives—usually citing space and weight issues—Toshiba's managed to keep theirs in a laptop that starts at three pounds.
