Reviews for the Toshiba Portégé R700-184

67% Toshiba Portege R700, a supremely portable laptop with Core i5 and a DVD drive
Source: PC Authority English
It isn’t perfect, then, and will never compete with some of the other premium laptops out there on quality, but it’s cheaper, powerful and supremely portable.

Toshiba Portégé R700 review
Source: English
The Portégé R700-184 packs a decent amount of performance into a thin-and-light package, and should prove a good companion to a road warrior, especially with its built-in 3G modem. However, it is not as sturdy as some laptops and, discounting the Core i5 processor, seems pricey for the specification.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
