Overview Toshiba Portégé R705-P41

The R705 integrates a 13.3-inch widescreen that boasts a 1,366-by-768 resolution. A higher screen resolution in this price range is a rare find, which is why the ones on the Sony Z116GXS (1,600 by 900) and Lenovo X301 (1,400 by 900) are deemed luxuries.

The full power Intel Core i3 processor that powers the Toshiba Portege R705 is proving in multiple systems, including this one, to be the Swiss Army Knife of processors. That is to say that it is a great all-purpose processor that can handle a little of everything we asked it to do. From video editing to mild photo retouching and entertaining with Hulu or YouTube there were no issues to be found. Sure, if you were going to be editing a lot of HD video on a daily basis you would want to go with a more powerful processor, but the  R705 has enough power to tackle almost nay consumer task; except modern gaming.

The R705 is the sole consumer model in a new R700 line mainly aimed at corporate customers. Toshiba sells it online for $890, while Best Buy’s site has it at $800. That is about double the price of a top-of-the line netbook, but the R705 is much more powerful than a netbook and is much cheaper than the MacBook Air, which currently starts at $1,500, or the ThinkPad X301 (the latest in the X300 series), which starts at over $2,000.
