Summary: Wanted a lightweight windows 7 laptop for travel to replace my 6 yr old one. This one is great except for the small keys but I can live that. also the screen has a lower resolution (which seems to be standard ) than my old Sony (of course it cost me 2K vs less than $500 for this one) This 13" is half a pound lighter than my Sony (it was only 3.7 lb) and both have dvd drives.
Summary: The laptop arrived on time and it was such a pleasure to open the pack and switch the laptop on- It has covered all my needs: it's light in weight, fast in switching on and off, although small in size yet a DVD drive is installed which is a bounce.
Report after a year - still very satisfied, almost perfectly

Summary: I've now had this Toshiba for a year and still love it. The strength of the case compared to previous Portege which cost twice as much is excellent and the light weight (about 3 lbs.) a joy. Thinness and feel and look are all great and make it a pleasure to pull it out of a case at a meeting or anywhere else. Speed of everything I do is fine and I often load it up with 4-5 intensive programs.
