With a full 128GB SSD at a great price and a thin, light design, the Toshiba Portege Z835 is one of the best deals in ultrabook-style laptops to date.
This machine, which packs a 128GB solid state drive and a 1.4GHz Intel Core i3-2367M processor, becomes one of the least-expensive ultrabooks from a top-tier vendor.
With some new 2012 models getting great reviews, the ultrabook competition is heating up.
The new devices could appear later this year, with hybrid disk drives helping keep costs low, according to a report.
Prices for Intel-based ultrabooks from major brands such as Toshiba, and Acer remain well below $1,000, keeping the pressure on Apple's pricier MacBook Air.
In the last couple of months new ultrabooks have debuted at prices lower than expected. That makes them worth a look.
Ultrabooks are going to get cheaper, but they're already cutting very close to cost.
Is it time for the Apple to ditch the 64GB SSD in the entry-level MacBook Air?
Toshiba and Best Buy are getting together to roll out the cheapest Ultrabook yet, dipping just below the $800 mark.
The HP Folio slim laptop has an Intel Core i5-2467M CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, and a backlit keyboard.
