Default Toshiba Portege R700 Review

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.anandtech.com/show/3888/toshiba-portege-r700-a-truly-ultraportable-133' target='_blank'>http://www.anandtech.com/show/3888/...traportable-133</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The R700 is Toshiba's latest ultraportable, and on paper, it's very impressive. It uses regular voltage Core i3, i5, and i7 processors and manages to stuff an optical drive into a 3.2lb, 1" thick enclosure. The casing is all done in brushed aluminum, and the internal structure uses a magnesium alloy and features an aluminum honeycomb to dissipate heat."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1283953526.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Netbooks are great in that they are light, portable and offer "good enough" performance for most people.&nbsp; Most people, but not all.&nbsp; There are still a group of people who need lots of computing power, and are willing to pay the premium that ultra-light laptops command.&nbsp; From a strictly hardware perspective, it is kind of hard to see how ultra-lights can cost that much more, since the major difference I can tell with the R700 is the CPU and its build quality.&nbsp; However, I have found that with business grade notebooks, you also get business grade support.&nbsp; Where you might have to live without your mobile companion for weeks with a typical consumer PC, business PCs often get repaired in days if not hours.</p>
