Intel has long said it envisions its Ultrabook concept manifesting in models the general public can pick up for less $1,000, and so far it's been a hit or miss goal. Count Toshiba's recently introduced Portege Ultrabook as one of those that's able to hit Intel's pricing target. Starting at $879, Toshiba's Portege Z835-ST8305 is now available to purchase direct from the company's website. Specs include: 13.3-inch LED backlit display with a 1366x768 resolution Intel Core i3 2367M processor 4GB DDR3-1333 memory Intel HD graphics 138GB solid state drive 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi; GbE LAN 2 x USB 2.0; 1 x USB...

Intel's Ultrabook concept is having a tough time winning over customers, not because people aren't interested in a thin and light notebook that's both powerful and attractive (the MacBook Air proves otherwise), but because of the price. Many of the early models are hovering around the $1,000 price ceiling Intel said it would like manufacturers to stay under, and some have even gone over. Toshiba's 13.3-inch Portégé, on the other hand, will be much cheaper. A full $200 cheaper, to be exact. Best Buy has a listing for Toshiba's $800 Ultrabook model with free shipping, and even after...

Intel's Ultrabook category is starting to heat up and it won't be long before this hot new sector reaches a rolling boil, just as netbooks did before tablets took over. The latest addition to the Ultrabook category comes from Toshiba, which today unveiled its Portege Z830 series. Pricing starts at under $1,000 MSRP, exactly where Intel ultimately envisions all Ultrabook models residing at. At 2.5 pounds and 0.63 inches thin, the Portege Z830 is roughly 20 percent lighter and 40 percent thinner than the ultraportable Portege R830. "The Portégé Z830 Series sets a new standard for thin...

The ultraportable notebook marketplace is hotter than ever before. In years past, buying a sub-14" machine generally meant a couple of things: low power and high price. Today, it's still fair to say that ultraportables are generally less powerful and more expensive than the standard-sized 15" machines that sit above them, but the gap is closing fast. Intel's Core i3 and i5 line of processors has ushered in an entirely new segment of thin-and-light machines, and we're getting to the point where 13.3" machines can finally be taken seriously from a performance standpoint. Toshiba's 13.3" Portégé... Read more...

Toshiba's Singapore division recently launched a new Portégé notebook that features a Honeycomb Structure and Fresh Air Cooling Technology.

This honeycomb structure provides increased rigidity without adding additional weight. Another cool feature of the Portégé R700 is its new Airflow Cooling Technology.

Back in April of 2008, Toshiba proclaimed that the notebook's future was in flash and SSD. Looks like it's making good on its own prophecy, doesn't it? Just months after announcing a half-terabyte sized solid state drive for 2009, the company has just unveiled its first (and the world's first, so it claims) notebook with a 512GB SSD within. Impressive, no matter how you slice it. More specifically, it's the planet's first laptop configured with an eSATA second generation 512GB solid state drive, and it's the Portégé R600-ST4203 doing the honors. The ultraportable machine weighs just 2.4 pounds... Read more...
