Toshiba Portege R500 fattens up

Toshiba’s thinner than a slice of Tesco Value turkey ham laptop, the Portege R500, has just bulked up.It’s still as wafer–like as be

It’s still as wafer–like as before, but now comes with 128GB Solid State Drive. That’s double the flash drive goodness than before, and makes a mockery of the 64GB in the top–notch MacBook Air. How d’you like them Apples, Apple?

Tosh is keeping strangely quiet when it comes to price, which makes us fear the worst when it comes to our wallet. All we’re sure of is that it’ll top the current balance-destroying £1,350 you’ll pay for the R500.

Still, if it comes in under the MacBook Air’s £2,000 high, it gets our vote, thanks to its optical drive and feather–weight bod’.

But don’t take our word for it. Take a look at our full–on comparison vidcast, which sees the MacBook Air and Toshiba R500 go mano–o–mano. Let’s get it on!
