At last week's IFA conference, Toshiba came ready to showcase its latest ultraportable notebook, the Portégé Z830. Toshiba's billing it as the thinnest notebook ever made, and it's ready to compete with the Macbook Air.
The Z830 measures 0.63 inches in thickness and weighs a slight 2.5 pounds, just beating out both the Air and Sony's new hotness, the Vaio Z. Underneath its magnesium alloy shell, it'll have a Sandy Bridge processor, up to 6GB of memory, and a 128GB hard drive. Rounding things out are HDMI, VGA, and USB ports. Sorry, no USB 3.0. But, at under a grand, you might want a look come its November release. [Guardian, IB Times]
