Excerpt: Great ultra portable. Fantastic keyboard, good display, VERY light, nice battery life. Speakers are (as should be expected) weak. I went with the cheaper i3 chip so HD video is possible, but you won't always have the best streaming HD experience, but works great for DVD and most other...
Excerpt: The R705 is an interesting notebook because of the power that comes with it's size and weight. I wouldn't have minded if it weighed a little more and was made of metal instead of the plastic. Or at least stronger plastic with better engineering.
Summary: The best thing is that it is as light as a netbook with all the features of a laptop - incl 14" screen. This can make the case/keyboard seem a little cheap/plastically but the trade off for weight is well worth it. Charges quickly and you can pretty much get a full day's on/off work out of it without re-charge. Super pleased with my purchase and would recommend to anyone.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quiet
Summary: I started to pay attention to the R700 series after I read tht Intel partnered with Toshiba to develop a new hydrodynamic system for CPU cooling. In fact, my friend who works in a semiconductor foundry highly recommended me R700 series wit Core i5, since it is "powerful and cool". I didn't place an order, though, in part because I was sitting on the fence to see what they will have to offer in the tablet universe.
Pros: Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: This is a work computer and will allow me to work outside the office. I replaced a Dell Inspiron that is about 9 years old. It's been very reliable but is too heavy and slow.I was looking for something small and lightweight but powerful enough for serious computer useage. Important requirements for me were a large hard drive, gigabit ethernet, multicore processor, N wireless protocol.
Summary: this is the ultimate travel (desktop)notebook, faster than macbook and 30% less weight, runs online and 4 office programs around 6 hours and has a great solid look. Also the e-sata is very handy. it lacks small items like: bluetooth, high quality speakers and extended graphic card.
