After my disappointing experience with the Samsung 305U, I am still looking around for a newer generation netbook/sub-notebook.

Toshiba has updated the Portégé R700 with new components but retained the old chassis design. We'd prefer a more solid lid section, but the R830 is an impressively portable notebook. Battery life is good, but the cost remains high.

It's a bit ironic that after Samsung releases its competitor to the MacBook Air in the form of the Series 9 notebook, the same company is responsible for giving Apple's ultraportable laptop a bit of speed boost. That's because new MacBook Airs are shipping with a new, faster solid state drive apparently from Samsung after initially coming with a Toshiba SSD.
Unveiled earlier this month, MSI's 3.1-pound X370 notebook computer is now available and shipping.

Most of Dell's laptop lineup is Intel-based, but the Inspiron M100 series appears to be saved for its AMD notebook forays. It already sells the Inspiron M101z with an Athlon II processor, and now it appears to be adding its first AMD Fusion portable in the form of the M102z.

The Toshiba NB550D received some attention a few weeks ago as the netbook is set to be one of the first of its kind sporting an AMD Fusion C-50 “Ontario” APU. Too bad it won't be popping up stateside.
