Portege R600-ST520W

 

While Toshiba's new Portege R600-ST520W hits the ground running with a base weight of 2.4 pounds (3 pounds with the power supply included) and a thickness just over the 1-inch mark, its price tag of well over 2 grand and its so-so hardware reduce the...

Thin and light - even for ultraportables Room for an optical drive

Mono speaker, poor sound

The R600's design looks stylish enough, at least with the lid closed. It features a brushed metal surface in silver--subdued but not boring (and it's nice to see Toshiba move away from high-gloss, high-fingerprint surfaces). With the lid open, the...

The Toshiba R600 is best suited for those seeking the lightest ultraportable around that can handle office documents.

Toshiba Portege R600-ST520W review: Toshiba Portege R600-ST520W

 

Toshiba Portege R600-ST520W

Truly ultraportable; very good performance for its size; impressive battery life; built-in DVD burner.

Expensive; WiMAX of limited immediate use; flimsy screen.

The Toshiba Portege R600 may be pricey compared with Netbooks, but it has a lot more to offer beyond its ultraportable size.

Toshiba Portege R600-S4202

 

The Toshiba Portégé R600-S4202 is the sum of four years' worth of improvements, polishing an already proven product. It's the thinnest and lightest ultraportable that squeezes in an optical drive and a full-size keyboard—and its 12-inch LED widescreen...

Featherweight chassis. Optical drive included. Big battery. Almost 7 hours of battery life. Full-size keyboard. Luxuriously thin

128GB SSD too expensive for prime time. An internal 3G modem is long overdue

The Toshiba Portégé R600-S4202 is the lightest ultraportable to pack a full-size keyboard and an internal optical drive.

Toshiba Portégé R600 Review

 

Toshiba may not have the fashionable appeal of Apple, nor the solid reputation of Lenovo, but they do know how to push the envelope. Their Portégé series of ultraportables is already slim, and was the first to offer a 128GB SSD back in 2008; now it's...

Toshiba Portege R600

 

If you think of HP's 2530p as a strapping workhorse of an ultraportable, Toshiba's R600 is like a stylish, sophisticated cousin—and we were quickly smitten with its charms. The R600 shares much in common with Toshiba's R500, but with improvements to...

Slim; supreme portability. Stylish; many ports; great battery life

Thinner body means compromises in processing speed and innards that aren't very accessible

Be that as it may, the Toshiba R600 stands out above the other notebooks here with its supreme portability, while still offering comparable features, a quality build, and a stylish appearance.

Toshiba Portege R600-S4202

 

If it's in your budget range, and you need a truly portable notebook for everyday business use, the R600 makes an excellent choice. It's built to stand up to the rigors of business use, and well worth the price if you're a true road warrior. It's a...

Review: Toshiba Portege R600 notebook

 

Toshiba's Portégé R600 is a the type of executive notebook that dominated the ultraportable scene before the netbooks started stealing the spotlight. It is the sort of insanely light, ultra-thin notebook that has impressed consumers for so long… the...
