Toshiba's high-end Vista tablet

Toshiba's high-end Vista tablet

If you like the Mac-style white look for your computer hardware, you're going to appreciate Toshiba's initial entry in the Windows Vista laptop category. The Portege R400 is a beautifully crafted convertible tablet laptop, one that is every bit as expensive as it looks.

The R400 has plenty of high-end features, such as built-in EV-DO support and a small LED readout on the front edge that shows the time, battery level, and wireless signal strength. It can also alert you to new e-mail messages when the lid is closed.

The Portege R400 has a 12.1-inch screen and uses Intel's power-saving ultralow-voltage Core Duo processors, making it a very portable system. To save space, the optical drive has been bumped off to an external box.

The Toshiba Portege R400 starts at around $2,500 (we played around with a $3,500 version) and should be available on January 30.
