Toshiba’s Portege R835-P56x is an in-expensive light-weight laptop. Here is what is cool.

  • 13.3″  at 1366 x 768 and LED Backlite
  • Dual layer DVD burner
  • Intel i5 (who needs more performance ?)
  • 640GB hard drive
  • 4 GB RAM (enough for atleast us Linux users)
  • Built in webcam and microphone
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • 6-Cell battery
  • Ample ports: USB 2.0, USB3.0, eSata and HDMI
  • Can charge USB devices even when the laptop is on sleep mode.
  • Magnesium allow casing
  • Multi-touch pad

Whats missing

  • No bluetooth
  • No SSD

Final thoughts:

This is a good laptop at this price, the price is attractive because Toshiba is planning to launch the  Portege Z830 Ultrabook in November. The Z830 will be lighter and sleeker like the Apple Air but would not be having an DVD drive.
