Toshiba's Portégé series has been gifted a new model, if leaks from Italy are anything to go by. It's not a super light R600-type model, with the Portégé name also being applied to the convertible M range too.
The M780 is a 12.1-inch laptop with a 1200 x 800 TruBright LED backlit screen. Multitouch support with Windows 7 gestures means you can fold that laptop screen right back and use it like a tablet. Powered by either Core i3 or Core i5 processors, there's 8GB of DDR3 memory and a choice of either a 2.5-inch HDD or SSD. Two USB ports, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, microphone, webcam and fingerprint scanner round the M780 off well. As Toshiba hasn't confirmed it officially, this is still just hearsay, but knowing Toshiba's history with the Portégé range, I wouldn't expect the M780 to be on the friendly side of $US3000.
