Product description: With its ultralight design and stunning silhouette, the feather light 1.72 pound Portégé R500 Series is the transcendent expression of executive mobility and style. Offering the world's lightest widescreen 12.1" notebook PC in one configuration, and the world's thinnest widescreen 12.1" notebook PC with an integrated DVD-SuperMulti drive in another, the Portégé R500 Series represents an uncompromising synthesis of portability and productivity that's meticulously engineered for the demands of executive computing. The Portégé R500 Series incorporates the world's first indoor/outdoor transreflective widescreen 12.1" LED backlit display, a brilliant innovation that is ideal for usage in virtually any lighting condition. Powered by Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology, Portégé R500 also provides tremendous battery life on a single charge. With the world's first widescreen 12.1" notebook PC with integrated 7mm DVD-SuperMulti drive, Portégé R500 eliminates the bulk and inconvenience of carrying external drives and cables, making it the ultimate ultraportable - the ultralight, all-in-one mobility platform executives have long desired. To protect against the physical rigors of mobile computing, Toshiba integrates lightweight, shock-absorbing 3rd Generation EasyGuard Technology that better safeguards the HDD and other critical components. Protective features, including multi-level passwords, a fingerprint reader and built-in encryption capabilities, help keep sensitive data and personal information safe from unauthorized access, giving users even greater security and peace of mind.

Great Laptop, extremely light weight and works awesome without a cinch. I didn't have Vista for this one used XP but I still love it. It has so many features can beat MacBook Air anytime. It may be thicker than Air, but still has 100s of more features compared to it.
