Toshiba’s Portégé R600 packs 9 hours of battery life into 2.4 pounds of laptop

Portégé R600 (note the preponderance of accent aigus, indicating its French Canadian market) is Toshiba’s latest laptop, which Crunchgear colorfully describes as “boneriffic.”

It’s not a powerhouse: a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ULV processor, a 160GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM, but it weighs less than two and a half pounds and, most impressively, promises nine hour battery life, for a little over a couple grand.

I’ve long liked Toshiba laptops, and this number is gorgeous. Toshiba’s one of the few laptop makers who have gotten it for a while: after a certain price point, all you care about is weight and battery life.
