It's very thin, looks sleek, weighs only 3.2 lbs. and it's a Toshiba R series notebook; must cost an arm and a leg, right? Think again! The Toshiba R700 series notebook starts at under a grand and has serious CPU options rather than some low-powered, older processor that you might expect from an ultralight. The 13.3" Portege R705 model we look at is currently exclusive to Best Buy, though you can buy a range of models in the R700 series with up to an Intel Core i7 CPU. The R705 measures just .06 inches at its thinnest point and feels uncannily light. It has a sharp and colorful LED backlit display, an internal DVD drive, a 500 gig hard drive and 4 gigs of RAM. It's got enough power for the road warrior on the go, has ample battery life and it looks good too. In fact, the Toshiba R705 earned our Editor's Choice Award.
