Toshiba U405-S2856 (13.3" widescreen) for $850 and free shipping

If the 15.4" Satellite is too big for you, we have a nice alternative! Well not we, but J&R World does. They are offering the Toshiba Satellite U405-S2856 (PSU44U-00C00W) for $850 and free shipping and handling.

This is a portable notebook, with a 13.3" widescreen display (1280x800). But don't let the small(er) screen scare you, this laptop has a byte (okay, bite). It is powered by the Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (2.26GHz) processor, and has an odd 3GB of memory, 320GB disk, dvd burner, Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics module, along with the usual assortment of wireless, webcam, and such. The OS is the Vista Premium SP1. Where are the XP drives? :-)

A bit of a surprise perhaps is that it has an FM tuner with an antenna. Hey, if it's a traveler's laptop, it might as well pick up some music when there are no internets around to connect to :-)

And now to the Jenny Craig segment, the weight. It's a reasonable 4.41 pounds, about one and a half pounds lighter than your typical 15.4" widescreen laptop.
