Toshiba's Small Business Notebook: The Portege R700

by Eric Grevstad

It's thin, it's light and, quite frankly, it's the best ultraportable small business notebook going. Come check out what's under the $999 hood.

Toshiba's Portege R700's is a lightweight, eye-catching slip of a small business notebook, but don't be fooled by its size. There's nothing small about its capabilities or value. In fact, our resident business notebook expert and hardware reviewer, Eric Grevstad, calls it one of the best ultraportable notebook he's ever seen.

Check out Eric's full review over at HardwareCentral.com, and see if you agree.

Is the Toshiba Portege R700-S1310 the ultimate ultraportable? Frankly, it comes as close as any we've tried lately, impressing us in a number of ways. Here are ten notable traits of Toshiba's 3.2-pound slimline.

This is a big deal as well as a good one; the Portege brand has always been one of Toshiba's premium labels, commanding price tags well into four figures (and sometimes north of $3,000). The R700 is the first Portege we'd consider affordable enough for corporate deployment as well as executive-perk detail (and its R705 sibling is positively a steal -- more on that below).
