With no mechanical hard drive or internal moving parts, solid-state drive (SSD) technology reduces the risk of losing data that could occur through bumps, knocks and vibrations of use, according to Toshiba. The integration of SSD also improves the performance of the Portégé R600. This notebook uses 2-bit-per-cell multi-level NAND fl ash memory based on 43nm process generation. The vendor claims its newly developed controller enables high-speed parallel processing and cuts power consumption by about 50 per cent, while also boosting data access speeds to about 200 per cent for read (max 230MB per second) and about 150 per cent for write (max 180MB per second) when compared to a hard disc drive (HDD). The Portégé R600 also has an energy-saving design that cuts power consumption by adopting an ultra-low voltage CPU (Intel Core 2 Duo processor). Its 12.1- inch trans-reflective LCD screen uses natural sunlight to make screen images more visible even without switching on the backlight. The notebook has 1GB on-board memory, which is upgradeable to 2GB.
