Because you are specifically seeking an ultraportable, this really is the best value for the money you are spending. If it were just another Toshiba, I’d say it was a tad expensive… however, u;tra-thin and ultra-light laptops do cost more. Typically they suffered in the processor department, however, the R700 is shipping with Intel Core i processors… which make them quite powerful.
All the reviews I find on this series are praising it. So… if this one has the weight and size you are looking for, buy it with confidence. Not only is it a sweet laptop, it’s a Toshiba.
