PC Magazine: Sexy Laptops

Toshiba Portege R500 PC Magazine has put together a rather interesting list of laptops, saying “These laptops bring sexy back” . Outside of the 15″ Apple MacBook Pro, all of the laptops mentioned are basically ultraportable, with three having screen sizes of 13″ (while retaining a low weight), with the Toshiba Portege R500 being singled out:

The Toshiba Portege R500 Series is regarded as the lightest ultraportable at 2.4 pounds, with a built-in optical drive. Its use of magnesium alloy, a motherboard the size of a sound card, and a 7mm optical drive produced a frame that’s only ¾ of an inch thick. If that’s not sexy, I don’t know what is.

The laptops mentioned:
Toshiba Portege R500
Apple MacBook
Dell XPS M1330
Sony VAIO VGN-SZ370P

It’s a unique little list, and they do make a good point – many manufacturer’s don’t put a lot of thought into the design and style of laptops these days.
