    Toshiba's World's Thinnest Notebook

    Toshiba’s Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., announced the Portege R500 Series ultraportable notebook computer incorporating several world’s first technologies further advancing Toshiba as a world leader in mobile innovation.

    It measures 0.77-inches at its thinnest point and weighs 2.4 pounds, making it one of the thinnest and lightest laptops, says the company. Considering Apple's Macbook Air weighs 3 pounds, while Lenovo's Thinkpad X300 weighs around 2.93 pounds; which means that the new Toshiba Portegee could, in fact, be the thinnest notebook .

    It has a widescreen 12.1-inches transreflective LED backlit display. When used outdoors, Toshiba explains, the transreflective screen lets the sunlight pass through, reflecting it out to bring the images on the display alive so that users can switch off the LED backlighting and decrease overall battery consumption.

    Recommended configuration for Portege R500-S5007V's:
    - Genuine Windows Vista Business (32-bit version)
    (Downgrade media for Genuine Windows XP Professional)
    - Intel Core 2 Duo Processor U7700
    (1.33GHz, 2MB L2, 533MHz FSB with 64 bit)
    - 2048 PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM
    - 128GB Serial ATA solid state drive
    - 12.1-inches diagonal wide-screen high brightness display
    (1280 x 800 (WXGA) - Transreflective backlit LED)
    - Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950
    - 7mm, 8xDVD-SuperMulti (+/-R Single Layer) drive supporting 9 formats
    - Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 4965AGN
    - Intel PRO/1000 - 10/100/1000 Ethernet
    - Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR

    Which sums up to an estimated price of Toshiba Portege R500-S5007V as $2,999, along with a 3-year standard limited warranty.
