Came across a nice little surprise while surfing the web.
There was some talk a while back about Toshiba possibly releasing a "retina" laptop.... well the time has come.
The ultrabook has a 13.3 inch 2560x1440 touch screen display on it (Toshiba calls it "Pixel Pure" instead of "Retina Display" ... most likely to avoid a lawsuit. Comes in 3 configurations (and is pretty pricey) 1. Core I5 (Non-Touch) 2. Core I5 Touch 3. Core I7 Touch ... while all 3 models come standard wih 8 GB Ram and 256 GB SSD.
Next, Toshiba claims it to be 100% stronger (than the Aluminum body in the Mac Book Air) due to using Magnesium for the body.
It's suppose to launch May 5 (on the website) and consumer stores (May 12).
The only downside I see (besides price) is that Intel's new Haswell Chip is about a month away from release so this will launch with Ivy Bridge. Hopefully, they'll have a refresh down the road since Haswell is supposed to do wonders for an Ultrabook.
