Toshiba Portege R705 Review

Toshiba Portege R705 Review

Toshiba's Portege R705 is an unexpected addition to the company's ultraportable range. Based on the Portege R700 unveiled as part of Toshiba's 25th anniversary for notebooks, the R705-P25 is a Best Buy exclusive with an MRSP of $889.99 but a street price that scrapes in at under $800. That makes it the cheapest Portege to date, and Toshiba would like us to remember it's also the lightest 13.3-inch notebook with an integrated optical drive (outside of Japan, at least). Light in the bag and light on the wallet: is the downside lightweight performance? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HP TouchSmart tm2 Adds Core i5 Processor to List of Features, Available Now

Back in May, there was a pretty robust rumor making its way around the Internet, saying something to the extent that the HP TouchSmart tm2 convertible laptop would be getting a big improvement in the processor department.

Toshiba Portégé R700 hands-on [Video]

Toshiba Portégé R700 hands-on [Video]

Toshiba has unveiled their latest ultraportable, the Toshiba Portégé R700, and while it may look like your average thin-and-light in some key ways it's actually pretty unique. The 13.3-inch R700 - which will also go on sale as the consumer-focussed Satellite R630 - uses a new airflow cooling system that, by pulling in cool air over the hotter components, rather than pushing out hot air, means Toshiba can not only use regular Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors rather than their less-powerful ULV counterparts, but do so in a machine that stays cool to the touch.
