Toshiba’s Portege R700 maintains the sleek, light and strong design of its predecessors, but it’s a much more powerful notebook. It shuns ultra-low-voltage processors in favour of full performance Core 13, Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs and it can run up to 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM…..

Toshiba has announced the new portable Toshiba Portege R700 13.3″ ultra-portable notebook. This new Portege notebook isn’t just lightweight , it’s powerful too. Weighing in at three pounds, yet sporting full power Intel Core processors, the Toshiba Portege R700 is an impressive looking notebook. Also, this super-light machine claims up to 8.5 hours on the standard 6-cell battery and up to 12.5 with the  9-cell extended battery. Best of all, retail pricing starts at $889.

Toshiba Portage R700 laptop is now released by the world famous laptop manufacturer Japanese Electronics company Toshiba. This is the world’s lightest ultraportable but functionally strong laptop, which helps the users to reduce the strain on their shoulders. The Company targeted to the business persons who need a machine that is slim, light in weight and sufficient to perform necessary functions. This laptop is the very good suit for all the business professionals as it provides them a classic experience to things.

As with its predecessors, the R700 is completely surrounded in magnesium metals, only instead of silver, the new versions will come in standard black or navy blue (available at Best Buy only). Despite the larger screen, the R700 still measures less than an inch thick. Its weight, however, has risen from 2.4 pounds (with the R500) to 3 pounds, which is still light by today’s standards.

The R700 integrates a 13.3-inch widescreen that boasts a 1,366-by-768 resolution. The traditional full-size keyboard found in the R200 and the R500 have reached the end of the road; the R700 sports the trending chiclet keys, similar to the ones found in its netbook, the mini NB305-N410. You’ll enjoy the typing and navigating experiences, as I have, during my time with the R700.

To pull all of this off Toshiba has introduced a new cooling method in the R700 series , called Airflow Cooling, which “uses directed streams of fresh air to cool the heat-generating components”; according to the press release from Toshiba. The case is a magnesium alloy with a honeycomb rib design that aims to improve the durability of the new R700. To keep the notebook running in teh real world there is also a hard drive impact sensor and a spill-resistant keyboard. Unlike many ultra-portable notebooks, the Portege R700 keeps the optical drive which many users still need or use on a regular basis.

Graphics performance will be handled by the integrated Intel QM57 chipset, which will be powerful enough to drive the 1366×768-resolution screen, as well as Full HD resolution via the HDMI port in the side of the chassis. You also get two USB 2.0 Sleep-and-Charge ports, VGA, a combination eSATA/USB 2.0 port, headphone and microphone ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, an SD card slot and, depending on the model you choose, you’ll get an ExpressCard slot and a built-in 7mm thick DVD burner.

The internal optical drive that came with R200 and the R500 will continue to thrive in the R700. It has three USB ports, one of which doubles as an eSATA port. An HDMI port and an SD slot are included features. A port replicator is available, as with its predecessor. And if you buy the Best Buy version, not only will you get the Navy Blue lid, but Intel’s Wireless Display (WiDi) technology as well. WiDi is similar to wireless HDMI in that you don’t need physical cables to stream content from your laptop to an HDTV.

The Toshiba Portege R700, with a Core i3 processor and a 500GB hard drive, will start at $999. A Core i7, 128GB SSD, and 4GB of RAM configuration will go for $1,599. No word yet on ship dates.
