New Laptop Toshiba Portege R500
Sunday, October 19, 2008
One of the most exciting notebooks or laptop to come along in the last few months has been Toshiba’s R500. The new Toshiba laptop Portege R500 with 12.1 inch widescreen features is new Intel Core 2 Duo U7600 (Merom) platform, and is the first ultra portable laptop to incorporate an optical drive into a system that is less than one inch thick and weighs less than 2.5 pounds.
The laptop Portege R500 has incredibly thin and light, it manages to squeeze a 12.1 inch widescreen display into a package even lighter than Sony's 11-inch VAIO TZ150. Though Toshiba does not have a reputation for making ultraportables, like Sony or Panasonic, they have been putting some serious effort into their R series.
The Toshiba laptop Portege R500 has 64-bit, ultra-low voltage processor with 1.20GHz clock speed, 2MB L2 cache, and 533MHz front-side bus, optical drive, fingerprint reader, and a generous selection of ports in a stylish form factor that is so light and thin it’s shocking.
The ultra-portable on Toshiba laptop Portege R500 is based on Mobile Intel 945GMS Express chipset with the integrated Graphic Media Accelerator 950, which manages a 12.1-inch 1280×800 LED backlight "highbrightness" display.
The Toshiba laptop Portege R500 manages to fit in a decent-sized keyboard which made for comfortable typing, and even avoids the annoying ultraportable trap of eliminating important keys, squeezing in separate page-up and page-down keys (always important for laptop Web surfing). The port selection of the laptop Portege R500 is remarkably good for a notebook of this size.
Other specification from the laptop Toshiba Portege R500 are Intel Wireless13 WiFi Link 4965AGN12 (802.11a/g/n), Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, System Windows Vista Experience Index: 2.0, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 with 64MB (Aero): 2.0 and 7mm, 8xDVD-SuperMulti (+/-R Single Layer) drive supporting 9 formats. The new laptop Toshiba Portege R500 is available in four different fixed-configuration models.

Got my Portege yesterday, I was shocked when I picked it up out of the box! So very light and fast. The silver "aluminum" look is nice too.
