The Toshiba Portege Z835-P330 features a 13.3 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1.3 GHz Intel Core i3-2367M processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid state disk.
The laptop measures 12.4″ x 8.9″ x 0.6″ and weighs about 2.4 pounds.
Toshiba is one of the first companies to hop on the ultrabook bandwagon. Ultrabooks are a new category of thin and light laptop that Intel is pushing. They’re designed to offer some of the benefits of netbooks or tablets including light weight and small size, while offering the power you’d expect from a high-end notebook thanks to a powerful processor and fast solid state disk.
The Portege Z835 is expected to come in multiple configurations, and it looks like the Best Buy model will be the cheapest of the bunch. But at $899, it’s the same price as the Acer Aspire S3 ultrabook, cheaper than any Asus Zenbook ultrabook, and about $100 cheaper than the least expensive MacBook Air.
