Summary: What a cool little laptop. It is super thin, weighs just about nothing and has all the features of the bigger models. THe SSD hard drive is very fast and I was expecting a close-to-silently operating laptop because of the drive.

Summary: Comments about Toshiba Portege R600-S4201: System runs great with all the basic notebook options at 2.6 lbs. The beginning install image is light on bloat ware. Outside the utilities and drivers I only had to remove Norton, Google applications and MS Office. The only fault with this model is that full screen web videos can be choppy, still play in a window.
