Toshiba Portégé R500-S5007V laptop

Toshiba scores yet another first when it comes to claims with its new Portégé R500-S5007V laptop that features at 128GB solid state drive, making it the lightest laptop in the world with a 128GB SSD and DVD Super-Multi drive, and it is also in line to gain the moniker of “the world’s thinnest with a SSD and DVD SuperMulti drive” as well. 128GB of storage space in the form of SSD is definitely a wonder, as that allows you to store a whole lot of data without worrying too much about hard drive crashes although it remains to be seen whether transfer of large chunks of data at once will see the performance meter drop when compared to traditional hard drives. Still, read on after the jump for more details of the Portégé R500-S5007V.

The Toshiba Portégé R500-S5007V measures a mere 0.77″ in thickness, so you had better be careful not to toss this notebook out of your home as it remains sandwiched between a stack of old newspapers like somebody did with his MacBook Air.

Prices start from $2,999 upwards, and you can expect the following specifications to get your computing kicks and bragging rights in. Shame it doesn’t come with any dedicated graphics card as getting in a spot of gaming in between business trips would have been a welcome addition.
