I’ve been asked to write a product review of the new Toshiba Portege R700 laptop. I’ve seen quite a few laptops over the last several years with our 1:1 laptop program, but this thing is amazing! It sports a 13.3″ screen, 8 hours of battery life, a DVD drive, and weighs in around 3 pounds. When you pop the battery out, it literally cuts the weight in half. First impressions are very promising!
