Size zero notebook

Toshiba has released the Portege R500. Its vital statistics are:

- Intel Core 2 Duo Processor U76007
- 1.20GHz, 2MB L2, 533MHz FSB
- 1024MB SDRAM memory
- 120GB Serial-ATA hard disk drive
- 8 x DVD
- 1280 x 800 (WXGA) Transreflective backlit LED
- WiFi 802.11n
- Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
- 28.3 x 21.5 x 2.6cm

It is also one of the first notebooks to incorporate a switchable trans-reflective LED backlight LCD for indoor and outdoor use. And in the third quarter of 2007, Toshiba plans to reduce the weight to a mere 780 grammes by incorporating a 64GB solid state drive.

Now if only it had an Apple logo on it.

Aside from not having an Apple logo, I like the specs, and a solid state drive is intriguing, but the tray-loading CD is very thin and that makes me worry. With the laptop safely on a table, the tray has some support underneath to keep it from moving too far down -- but I can see it snapping off while on my lap.
