And in more Toshiba news today they’ve just introduced a new Ultraportable laptop with DVD drive that they claim is the World’s Lightest coming in at only about 3 lbs to start. The Portégé R700 starts at under $1,000 and comes with an Intel CPu, along with Win7 Pro, eSATA and USB ports, DDR3 ram, DVD drive and battery life of 8.5 hours with also an optional larger battery for 12.5 hours run time.

With an all-new sophisticated design that will turn heads in the boardroom, the Portégé R700 features a 13.3-inch diagonal HD widescreen LED-backlit display, a premium raised tile keyboard and a wide TouchPad™ with customizable Multi-touch Control that makes typing and navigation easy and comfortable.

Equipped with Windows 7 Professional, the laptop includes a wealth of features and ports required by business users, including spacious hard drives, fast DDR3 RAM, the ability to dock to a port replicator, an ExpressCard™ slot, an eSATA/USB combo port with Sleep-and-Charge, as well as a built-in DVD SuperMulti drive and Webcam. The Portégé R700 also features a high-capacity six-cell battery with a battery life rating of up to 8.5 hours.
