We've never been shy about our love for Toshiba's lightweight magnesium laptops, so we're ecstatic to see that the Portege R830 is nearly here, bringing Intel's second-generation Core i3 and Core i5 processors to the 3.2 pound, 13.3-inch form factor. We spotted the R830 and siblings at MWC last month, but today you can lay down the cash, with nine Benjamins buying you the cheaper Core i3 variant, as well as two weeks to gleefully anticipate your newfound mobility before the notebook ships to your door. Alternatively, you could wait and drop an extra $30 for a 2.3GHz Core i5-2410M that can turbo up to 2.9GHz under load, but otherwise the units are identical inside and out -- you'll find a 1366 x 768 LED-backlit screen, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 640GB of storage, a DVD burner and integrated Intel graphics no matter which numbered door you open.

[Thanks, Essie S.]
