I could not believe it until I actually saw it. The Toshiba Protégé R700-S1321 is the most impressive laptop that I have seen in years. With its 13.3-inch screen that still lets me keep an optical drive but yet does not sacrifice battery and power, and best yet boasts about an 8 plus hour battery, and includes Windows 7 Professional, or a free downgrade to Windows XP. What could be better? Well the fact that this laptop only weighs 3.2 pounds and includes a Core i5 processor. Overall this machine is special in the sense that for the first time in a long time Toshiba is offering a laptop that gives you the best of both worlds; thin and lightweight with plenty of power and battery life. Abt has this laptop on display in the Connect Store. It is something that should be truly seen if you are in the market for a new laptop.
