The Toshiba R700 series is a collection of ultra-portable notebooks that maintain powerful standard voltage Intel Core processors while offering a respectable battery life and weighing in at 3.2 pounds. The business focused R700 models begin at $999, but the consumer focused R705, or more specifically Toshiba R705-P25, is available from Best Buy for just $799.
The consumer model drops the docking port found on the business R700 notebooks but gains a blueish lid and support for Intel Wireless Display to stream HD content to your HDTV without wires.
Toshiba has loaned us the new Toshiba R705 to take along on an upcoming road trip and you can catch the unboxing and hands on of the Toshiba R705 below:
We will be sharing out first impressions of the Toshiba R700 soon and a full review of how the R705 handles heading out on the road in a few weeks.
