    not sure what the mpcie wifi slot is. it might only be on the r700's though if ur talking about that slot to dock it on.
    Thanks! I can only see port1 and port2 (wifi). Can you down the page and post the screenshot? The chipset has up to 8 ports and I need to see how the others are laid out.

    I have asked for Toshiba to chime in here.

    Request: We all are curious about battery life. But it can be difficult to provide charge-discharge cycle as far as it takes much time. There is much faster, easier and accurate way to find out how long battery can lasts. You just need to point your mouse to battery bar during different load. Find discharge rate numbers (like that http://osirisdevelopment.com/Battery...tatusPopup.png ) We need to check this modes:
    Heavy load - Provide 100% cpu usage, 100% brightness, often HDD acces (ex. run game)
    Light web surfing - Power saver scheme, 60% brightness (or any you think will be suitable for web surfing)
    1080p movie watching
    Dvd watching
    Word typing - power saver scheme, min brightness, word running.
    Example 60.000 mWh battery capacity and 10.000 mW discharge rate means you can get 6 hours of usage (if you will not change your task)

    Nando4, thanks for laptop list!
    Now I choosing between Toshiba R700 and Lenovo X201i As far as I'm living in Russia I can't buy R700 yet. But I'm coming to Australia next week. How long do you think time will pass before R700 will be avaliable for buying in Australia?
    um ok ill do that later i guess :P

    Thanks. The UK website has 700 models with a 3G option. Is there a mPCIe slot for that in the US 705? If so, could you possible swap over the wifi and see if the port number changes from port2 to some other port? Doing this should not void the warranty. Is there antennas and a SIM slot for internal 3G?

    anyway, how do you guys clean your laptop screens? how do you clean fingerprints from the lid and palm marks from the area on either side of the trackpad, the palm rests?

    help me out! i helped you guys out!
    Why clean off fingerprints. They reappear the instant you use the laptop. Just get used to the fact that you will be having fingerprints.

    If you must clean them off. How about a microfiber cloth dipped in a mild dish soap solution and wrung out until almost no moisture. Use that to wipe them off.

    Does anyone know of discounts (like say student discounts) available for the R700?

    Oscar2, I see you already own a Vaio Z. Why would you want an R705 if you already own a Vaio Z?

    Just curious...

    My son is going to college. I'm buying it for him. Also, I guess I'm just a sucker for 3.2 pound laptops with 13" displays

    Ahh, gotcha.

    For me, I love everything about the Z -- except for the price -- so I'm looking for the next best thing. This MAY be it, but it's too soon to tell for sure.

    I too love my Z very much. However, if the R700 had been available at the time I was buying my Z I would likely have gone with it. I am not a gamer and so the Nvidia GT330 stays mostly disabled. Also the Toshiba offers the 360GB 7200 rpm drive. Whereas the Z only offers the non-standard SSDs that cannot be upgraded.

    My biggest beef with the Toshiba is they don't allow you to customize what you want. For myself, I would want the one with the i7-620M cpu because that one supports virtualization, however that is only available with the 128GB ssd. (grrr)

    Same here, I'm not a gamer (no games what so ever). But I would like to dabble in some AVCHD video editing of home/family videos. Any thoughts on the minimum R700 needed for this?

    My main beef with the Toshiba is that it doesn't have a backlit keyboard. I suppose I could live without it, but I really wanted one on my next laptop.

    My only other minor gripe is that the keys on the Toshiba are a bit smaller than typical chicklet keys. Not a deal-killer, though.
