Message Text: Toshiba announced a new version of its Portege R500 ultraportable, the Portege R500-S5007V.

Measuring 0.77-inches at its thinnest point and weighting 2.4 pounds, the Portege R500-S5007V is one of the thinnest and lightest laptops. Considering Apple's Macbook Air weighs 3 pounds, while Lenovo's Thinkpad X300 weighs around 2.93 pounds, it means that the new Toshiba Portegee could be the thinnest notebook today.

It comes with solid state drive (SSD) capacity of 128GB and a built-in 7mm DVD SuperMulti drive.

It has a widescreen 12.1-inches transreflective LED backlit display. When used outdoors, Toshiba explains, the transreflective screen lets the sunlight pass through, reflecting it out to bring the images on the display alive so that users can switch off the LED backlighting and decrease overall battery consumption.

You can get up to 7.5 hours of battery life with this laptop after a single charge, when used for normal computing. The laptop also incorporates Toshiba's EasyGuard Technology for security, which includes advanced encryption, multiple level passwords, and a fingerprint reader.

The price of Toshiba Portege R500-S5007V is $2,999, along with a 3-year standard limited warranty.
