Toshiba introduces the thinnest full-function 13,3‚ laptop, the Port√©g√© R700. A stunning blend of mobility, performance and features for business users.
Toshiba recently announced the thinnest and lightest full-function 33.8cm (13.3”) laptop, the Port√©g√© R700. It’s a well-specified business machine that combines a lightweight, ultra-slim chassis with innovative computing technologies.
‚Our long-standing engineering expertise has enabled us to design a laptop with an unparalleled blend of high performance, mobility and features ‚ yet at a decent price,‚ says Andre Rossouw, Regional General Manager for Toshiba South Africa. The result is a slim and light 33.8cm (13.3”) ultra-portable machine that measures just 16.8mm tall and weighs only 1.3kg.
‚To achieve a device like the Port√©g√© R700 we have made major advances in three areas: heat management, chassis construction, and memory chip deployment,” explains Rossouw. Airflow Cooling Technology, co-developed by Intel¬Æ and Toshiba, allows Toshiba to integrate the latest Intel Core family processors in the Port√©g√© R700’s slim casing while keeping the sound of the fan to a minimum. A honeycomb structure in the palmrest area makes the Port√©g√© R700 highly durable against flexing – protecting the electronic and mechanical components from being damaged, considerably prolonging the life of the product. By innovatively stacking the memory slots vertically, the Port√©g√© R700 can accommodate up to 8GB RAM for even more powerful performance.
Travel light, work easily
The black Port√©g√© R700 enables business users to travel light without compromising on performance. Thanks to the integration of the latest Intel¬Æ standard voltage Core processors and the availability of an optical disc drive, the slim and light laptop is equipped to run even the most-demanding multimedia applications. And the powerful performance of Port√©g√© R700 doesn’t compromise on battery life – it can run for an entire working day of up to eight hours on one battery charge. The new model offers even more useful features to enhance its portability and appeal for business people: e.g. a durable yet very elegant black magnesium-alloy cover with a matt finish, a 3D sensor for hard disk protection against drops and shocks, a broad range of connectivity options, a non-reflective screen and a docking station connector. The docking station supports HDMI and USB 3.0 for fast data transfer.
The Toshiba Port√©g√© R700 is available in South Africa from October 2010 at a recommended retail price from R12,999.00.
