There are few things more annoying than having your battery die while you are busy with important business on your laptop and having to wait forever for it to recharge. Added to that, nobody likes to lug around kilos of machine and end up with backache at the end of the day. Manufacturers have realised this and they have subsequently developed a laptop that recharges within ten minutes, and that weighs less than one kilogram. No official announcement has been made as yet, but rumours are everywhere that Toshiba is the company behind this project.

Whenever companies realise that there is a gap in the market they try to come up with something that will fix the problem. The unfortunate thing is that such an endeavour can only go one of two ways. You will either see the product becoming the hottest must have item around, or it will be an outright let-down. It is true that a lot of it has to do with overrating the product through all the hype, but sometimes products just don’t deliver on their promises. Toshiba is known for its great machines, and if it is rumoured that they are coming up with something great then chances are that they are doing just that. Let’s take a closer look at this computer.

The laptop in question here is a notebook that is around 13 inches in size, with an LCD display featuring 16:19 aspect ration. It is powered by Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 CPU. Each chip boasts 4GB memory with a hard drive featuring 500GB capacity, and a solid state drive featuring a 512MB capacity. All this is said to weigh less than one kilogram. This allows for a sleek design, which will prove to be very popular amongst those who truly believe in luxury and style without the compromise on efficiency.

Then the other half of the excitement is the battery. This will be a SCiB, or a super charged ion battery. This kind of battery has been around for the last two years already, and will reportedly charge to more than 90% after just ten minutes. The unfortunate part is that it is not yet known how long the battery will last for in the first place. It would indeed be useless if you had to charge your battery several times a day. If this battery works as claimed, then it will become a tremendous asset to those who are always on the go and who don’t have time to sit in an office or at home to wait until their laptop is finished charging. After all, it is meant to be a laptop not a desktop.

When shopping for laptops there are a number of things people look for, and two of the most important are size and battery life. Of course you want a laptop that is also efficient, but you don’t want it packaged in a bulky case, because then it may as well be a desktop computer.
