Toshiba Portege R400-S4931 Tablet PC (1.20GHz Core Duo U2500, 2GB DDR2, 80GB, DVDRW DL, Windows Vista Ultimate, 12.1" TFT)

 

Despite recent rave reviews for its ultraportable convertible tablet, the Portege M200, Toshiba seems to have taken a step backward with its new Portege R400-S4931. It is for the most part a successful--and fashionable-looking--notebook, with good...

Vista Sideshow LCD ; Two bundled batteries

Optical drive not built-in ; Lacks FireWire and built-in modem

In a classic case of early implementation of features, the Portege R400 sees Toshiba celebrate technology more than quality.

Toshiba Portégé R400 Tablet PC

 

We debated whether we should reveal the Portégé R400's price tag up front or save it for a surprise ending. OK, here goes: It's $3,500, easily making

Striking looks may have you confusing this laptop for a Mac. WAN system works flawlessly — a rarity for Vista notebooks. Mediocre 2 1/2 hours battery life is bolstered by an enormous, included, power slab. Screen is crazy bright: The 12.1-inch display...

Spring-loaded hinge tends to slam the lid shut violently. Only two measly USB ports. Touchpad and mouse buttons are too small and placed too far to the right. Second mortgage required to cover cost

Toshiba Portege R400 Hands On Review (Video)

 

One of the two major notebook/Tablet PC announcements at CES was the Toshiba Portege R400. We were able to log a few minutes with the machine to develop an initial impression

Finally, the wireless docking solution is a very innovative feature that many will be interested in with the R400. Basically what happens is that when you put the notebook within 3 feet of the wireless docking solution that uses UWB (Ultra Wide Band)...

Toshiba shakes things up with a striking convertible that sports a bright LED display, fast mobile broadband, and a convenient external screen for at-a-glance alerts.

Excellent battery endurance • Rugged design • Small footprint

Uneven screen brightness • Tiny keyboard • Tablet functionality costs more

Toshiba Port?g? R400-S4931

 

Unlike the Port?g? M400 Series, the R400 has a widescreen format. Its finish is similar to the glossy type found on the tx1000 and perfect for media mavens who devote their time watching movies and videos (on sites such as YouTube and MovieLink or from...

Sexy design. Light and forearm-friendly. Vista Ultimate edition. Gorgeous widescreen for media mavens. SideShow LCD display. Integrated EV-DO antenna

Low-powered. Too many proprietary applications loaded

The Toshiba Port?g? R400-S4931 is one of the lightest, sexiest convertible tablets I've seen, showcasing many of the neat features found in Windows Vista Ultimate.

Toshiba Portégé R400-S4931

 

This stylish tablet offers high-fashion computing for the business set, but performance and battery life fall short for the price.

Great-looking design; bright wide-screen LCD; secondary OLED display; full wireless-networking options, including Verizon Wireless EV-DO; three-year warranty

Expensive; screen is reflective, smudge-prone; few ports; limited performance, considering price; poor battery life

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Product Specifications

Toshiba's Portege R400 is the world's first notebook computer with the ability to automatically synchronize e-mail and calendar events through the integration of Microsoft's Active Notifications. This exclusive technology helps ensure accurate and timely information is available to the user - whether the system is on or in suspend mode. To assist with this synchronization process, the Portege R400 features Toshiba's ConfigFree, which helps detect and connect to the strongest and most reliable network connection available. To further enhance the functionality of the system's automatic e-mail synchronization capabilities, the company added the Toshiba Edge Display to the Portege R400. Located on the front edge of the Portege R400, this secondary display serves as the user's Personal Information Assistant allowing the user to easily monitor his/her inbox and calendar activity. To ensure full benefits of the convertible design, the Toshiba Edge Display is viewable in notebook or tablet mode and even when the unit is stored in a carrying case.
