Toshiba's Portege R600 ultraportable gets the hands-on treatment

Toshiba's R600 ultraportable got lost in the din of Tuesday's MacBook announcements, but TrustedReviews got their hands on the 12.1-inch ultraportable, which replaces the crazy-thin-and-light R500 and goes up against some pretty tough competition like the VAIO TT. Not a lot of external differences here -- it looks identical to the R500 -- but the keyboard, screen, and overall fit and finish have apparently been much improved, and the bump to Centrino 2 and the corresponding 1.2 or 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo processors is certainly appreciated.
