Toshiba's Portege Z835 coming to Best Buy for $899, aims for featherweight belt (Update: it's up)
This, readers, is the Toshiba Portege Z835, and it's on its way to a Best Buy near you. As Laptop Magazine reports, the company's new Ultrabook (and latest addition to the Z830 family) is available exclusively at Best Buy for $899 $800, fulfilling Toshiba's promise to break that sub-$1,000 barrier. (At the moment, we're not seeing it on the retailer's website, though we expect it to pop up pretty soon.) By comparison, that's $400 less than the comparably sized MacBook Air and about $300 less than ASUS' Zenbook UX31. Weighing in at less than 2.5 pounds, this featherweight is powered by a 1.4GHz Intel Core i3 CPU, boasts a 13.3-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution and ships with 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. But is it worth it? Well, we're currently testing our model, and will have a review for you to consume in the very near future.

Update: It now appears that the Z835 is up on Best Buy's site, as a friendly tipster has pointed out to us. Grab one for $800 here.
