The Details: Best Buy has a Toshiba Portégé Ultrabook Laptop with Intel® Core™ i3 Processor, 13.3″ Display and 4GB Memory on sale for $699. Regularly $899, so it seems like you’ll be saving $200. Model: Z835-P330 | SKU: 3868228, but that probably won’t help you in comparison shopping because each retailer gets their own model numbers.

From Wikipedia: “An Ultrabook is a computer in a category of thin and lightweight ultraportable laptops, defined by a specification from Intel. The name Ultrabook is an Intel trademark. By this marketing initiative and an associated $300M fund, Intel hopes to stimulate the market for Intel-based laptops similar to Apple’s MacBook Air, against rising competition from ARM processor-based tablet computers.
Incorporating new CULV Intel processors with integrated graphics, and flash-based SSDs, Intel claims that Ultrabooks will have 5 hours of battery life, mainstream performance, and ultra-fast start up. Announced at Computex 2011, Intel estimates that by the end of 2012, 40% of the consumer laptop market segment will be Ultrabooks.”
This model seems to be well liked, with 13 reviewers giving it 4.7 out of 5 stars on BestBuy.com. If nothing else, this is an amazing bundle of technology.
