Is the Toshiba Portege R700-S1310 the ultimate ultraportable? Whichever of the three Porteges you prefer, you'll get an ultraportable -- OK, a 13.3-inch notebook that straddles the line between ultraportable and thin and light -- with ample style and elegant engineering. It should be on your short list of lightweight contenders.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
