A laptop, also known as a notebook, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right laptop, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving 'mobile' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you laptop mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You'll work faster because you can view more information at once and it's great for multimedia!

The Toshiba Portégé R500-125 (£1350 inc. VAT) is one of the most portable laptops weve seen to date, weighing in at just 1.1kg, yet boasting a usable 12.1-inch display. The screen is one of the most unusual things about this laptop, as its a transflec...

OK, something as small as, say, the Asus Eee you expect not to weigh much, but a full-size machine? No way. Yet the R500 is a 12.1 in laptop with all the features you’d expect from any standard laptop, including a optical drive, built in and ready t...

Bottom line Even in terms of price, the R500 stands up well against the Air once you configure the latter with the 64GB SSD drive, coming in at £1,761 to Apples £2,028. If youre after a usable, super portable machine that weighs hardly anything then the Tos...

Calling the Toshiba Portégé R500 (SSD) ($2,599 direct) an ultraportable is an understatement. Its almost inconceivable that a laptop can sport a 12-inch screen and a full-size keyboard and yet weigh only 1.7 pounds (yeah, you read that right). Of co...
Good 1.7-pound laptop. Full-size keyboard. Options for a built-in optical drive and extended batteries. GreenTech approved.
Bad Must handle with care. Screen flexes too much and needs brightening. 3G wireless needs to come to the United States. SSD drives are expensive. Performance is unspectacular.
