How long can your notebook last while you’re on the road? Well, Toshiba claims that their latest Portege R600 is able to last for a phenomenal nine hours before requiring a trip to the nearest power outlet. I find that great news, but wouldn’t want to take Toshiba’s word for it since most people who do work on their notebooks might be running many more applications simultaneously compared to test conditions. Still, even if one lops off a couple of hours from the nine hour stated figure, it is still pretty impressive. The Portege R600 comes with the following :-
- 12.1″ LCD display
- Intel Core 2 Duo 1.4GHz processor
- 2GB RAM (max. 5GB)
- 128GB SSD/160GB hard drive
- DVD burner
This sub-1kg notebook will retail for approximately £1,225.
