New Toshiba R500 - The Envy Machine
I just read this article at Popular Mechanics about the new Toshiba Portege R500. I just recently switched to Mac, but this laptop, with its crisp, ultra-thin LED screen that uses the sun's light to brighten itself outside, 10 hours of battery life, 1.7 pound weight, and, in one model, a pure solid state 64GB disk drive to reduce power usage and improve speed, make me more than a little jealous. Innovation happens everywhere, and there is a definite downside to depending on one and only one supplier.
