Toshiba Portege R500-S5002

Perhaps the laptop we've been most looking forward to checking out this year, Toshiba's Portege R500 is very close to the final word in ultraportable systems. Incredibly thin and light, it manages to squeeze a 12-inch display into a package even lighter than Sony's 11-inch VAIO TZ150.

This laptop costs around $2000 for the base model and $2150 for the upgraded version.

Toshiba's much-anticipated Portege R500 may be the best ultraportable laptop available right now. This is an extremely thin and light has excellent battery life and even includes optical drive. This machine has a weight badge of 2.4 pounds! Which is much greater than extraordinary. The laptop also has a 120 GB hard drive, a 1.2 GHz Intel core 2 duo processor and Mobile Intel Express 950GM video card.

The only thing this laptop lacks is no mobile broadband and that very limited configuration options.
