Its raining lighter laptops, ever since Apple released their MacBook Air more and more companies are joining the lighter and better laptops bandwagon.

Toshiba has revealed their refurbished version of Toshiba’s Portégé R500 laptop equipping it with additional features.

Toshiba is claiming it to be the lightest and thinnest laptop available today according to its spec sheet the laptop weighs only 771 grams and only 25.5 mm thick. The laptop is now available in two flavors: the R500-11J and the R500-11I.
