Toshiba's first entries into the ultra thin and lightweight notebook category called Ultrabooks are now available for purchase online after initially being sold exclusively through Best Buy. The Portege Z830 and the Z835 series are deemed the lightest 13-inch notebooks in the world, aiming to compete with Apple's popular MacBook Air notebooks.

There are four base models of the Ultrabook to choose from, all with 13.3-inch displays. Prices start at $929 for the Z835 and go up to $1,429 for the higher-end Z830. The Z835 features a 1.4Ghz Core i3 processor with 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD.

The Z830 comes in two configurations with either a 1.7GHz Core i5 model with 4GB of RAM for $1,199 or a 1.8GHz Core i7 model with 6GB of RAM for $1,429. Both include 127GB of SSD storage.
