  • Screen: 13.3” LED-backlit
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-2367M 1.4GHz 3MB Cache
  • Storage: 128GB SSD
  • Memory: 4GB DDR3
  • Graphics: Intel HD3000
  • Ports: 1 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, media card reader
  • Wireless: Intel 802.11 b/g/n
  • Weight: 2.5lbs
  • Battery Life: 8 hours
  • Thickness: 0.6”
  • Keyboard: Backlit chiclet style

The Ultrabook category is pretty new and getting a lot of attention, and if prices fall to around the $700 we’re seeing here then there will definitely be more interest.  The Z835 has a lot of premium features such as a backlit keyboard, fast SSD, super thin 0.6” body, long battery life of up to 8 hours.  The downsides to Ultrabooks is they are so thin they don’t have a built-in optical drive, the keyboard might sacrifice some usability because there’s only so much room for keys to travel and there’s a limited amount of ports.  The processors are also specialized low voltage chips and so will not be as fast as the fully fledged Intel Core i3 processors that generally clock in at 2.10 GHz and above.  Finally, if you like to have tons of storage on board then the 128GB SSD might not cut it for you.  Most people that are interested in Ultrabooks are looking to marry the best of both worlds from laptops and tablets, and not have to carry both, so if you’re somebody like that and looking for something ultraportable this deal could be it.

You can order online and get Free Shipping with this deal or simply order online and pickup in store to ensure your local store does not run out of stock before you arrive!

    This is an amazing price – the Toshiba is my favorite ultrabook by far, and I played with all of them at IDF a couple of months ago.

    I couldn’t resist the deal and had to buy one to try out. Even the box is amazingly thin, prompting the female sales clerk to blurt out “wow this thing is so skinny”. I don’t have a MacBook Air and have not be as lucky to play with every one under the sun so I was also impressed by the initial “shock” of the packaging and laptop “skinniness”.
