Toshiba announces the Toshiba R500-S5007V notebook featuring a 128GB SSD. The 2.4 pound Toshiba Portégé R500-S5007V is the world’s lightest laptop with a 128GB SSD and DVD SuperMulti drive and one of the world’s thinnest with a SSD and DVD SuperMulti drive.

"With 7 world’s first technologies the Portégé R500 series has served as a technology launching pad and redefined the ultraportable marketplace with its world’s first technologies and ‘green’ attributes, such as a transreflective LED backlit indoor/outdoor viewing display, the industry’s highest rated EPEAT Gold laptop and Energy Star 4.0 compliance," said Jeff Barney, general manager and vice president, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. "First to incorporate a 128GB solid state drive is another major accomplishment for Toshiba and illustrates how the company is committed to delivering solutions that meet the needs of our customers."
The Toshiba R500-S5007V with 128GB SSD sells for $2,999. The price is quite steep, but you get a powerhouse notebook in a very small case. The 12.1 inch notebook is only .77inch thick. The Apple MacBook Air is slightly thinner with .076 inch, but lacks that high-end feature-set by far.
