Summary: It's great and I like it so much. It is very light and easy to handle and carry. I hope it would last too like my old laptop Gateway which is a 4 pounder. I bought it because of it's 2 pounder weight. I hope it's worth the price. It's been only 2 weeks since I bought it.[...].
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Great Software, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: Over the years, my laptops have become an extension of my life. What I ask of them, is everything from web activities, professional speaking w/power point, photo editing (I print my own photos)...it's simply with me, all the time. I also sync my laptop and cell phone (Windows mobile PPC) quite often. This small little Toshiba fits perfectly. When you pick it up, you can't believe how little it weighs.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Quiet
Excerpt: "The R500 is quite a light laptop, though it's not the lightest in the market. It includes a 12inch screen and DVD writer. It weights 1.1kg. It includes a 12in screen and DVD writer. The plastic chassis looks a little cheap in the flesh and the lid, which is just 5mm thick. Low screen bright compared to the others and its viewing angles are not so comfortable.

Pros: Long battery life, ultra - low voltage (ULV) processor, plenty features
Cons: No built - in modem, small lcd, low screen bright
Summary: This is a turkey/lemon. Don't buy. I purchased this to use in a business environment and had to go back to a 2004 Tecra. Support said to stop using Outlook and/or complain to Microsoft (yeah, they will rewrite Outlook).
Pros: -very light
Cons: -Toshiba support (arrogant and patronising) -wireless cuts out -outlook is very slow (unusable) -offline file synchronisation is in the minutes
Summary: I replaced my R300 with an R500 and in many ways it has been a backward step. The machine is light but too flimsy (my screen cracked and had to be replaced at my cost after only a few weeks, the DVD drive has stopped working and the casing has now cracked - all with what I would say is 'normal use'). In use it is fairly slow, and the claimed battery life (up to 12 hours) is simply misleading (I get around 4 hours max).
Pros: Very light
Cons: Too flimsy, too slow, average battery life, poor fingerprint software
