Ok, slightly odd choice of word X)

But a very nicely designed laptop, slim and stylish. (_;)

My girlfriend actually bought this a few days ago. Impressively light and battery life is equally as impressive. Admittedly might not be as good looking as the ultra books, but one can hardly describe it as ugly when compared to other laptops in this price range. it also makes for a refreshing change when compared to the Macbook air lookalikes.
Typing this from an R700 (virtually the same, but first generation i3, no USB 3.0 etc), very very impressed.

Before someone comes along with a 15.6" for £50 less...

It's 13.3"

It's 1.5KG (which is nearly half most 15.6" laptops...)

It will genuinely do 6+ hours on a single charge.

Hot!
This is exactly what we need. We don't need expensive ultrabook, we don't like slow small netbook. I wish manufacturers produce more and more laptop like this, slightly slower CPUs like B800 are acceptable, and bring the price down to ~£300.
I like it, voted hot.

New Toshiba R and similar laptops will NEVER cost £300, regardless of how low end the actual pc components are being used to produce it. The spec doesn't make the price tag and target market yet.
