Reviews for the Toshiba Portégé R700-15X

With so much power in such a slender frame, the Toshiba Portege R700 is definitely a little marvel. We like it a lot and this is not only due to its performance and small size, but also its build quality, which feels sturdy. We wish it had a better keyboard though, and that its fingerprint reader software worked with Firefox. Above all, we wish it didn't get so bloody warm.

The Portégé R700 is a lightweight yet powerful laptop. It's not perfect though - the keyboard isn't to our taste and the heat and noise issues are irritating. Despite these issues, if you need fast performance without the bulk then the Portégé R700 is currently the best ultra-portable laptop available at this price.
