Toshiba's upcoming Portégé also includes an 8-cell lithium ion battery and weighs 2.5 pounds, according to its product page on Best Buy's website. No word on when it be available, other than "coming soon."
"Not as sexy as the Zenbook, but not bad."
I looked at the zenbook, i didn't like the off angle viewing. I'm used to my sager notebook 1080p screeen, it doesn't get washed out off angle, the zenbook does, or i would think about it more because I like the design.
Wow that is nothing for a Toshiba Portege not to mention this ones ultra light status and extended battery size!
Probably because of price constraints they're only using TN screens for now but once manufacturing costs start coming down with the 2nd generation Ultabooks then we should start seeing some start better parts like using the pricier IPS screens for wide angle viewing, etc.
Next year should also start bringing out some of the recent advances in screen technology, reducing power consumption, more outdoor readability, etc.
