Toshiba + OpenSolaris laptops now shipping

Dave Miner
Sr. Principal Software Engineer
Following up to my entry from January, the Toshiba OpenSolaris Laptops are at last available for order.  They come with 2008.11 pre-installed, and include a year's worth of OpenSolaris support.  I've been using the R500, which is the R600's little brother, for the past few weeks and can say that it's really an enjoyable, lightweight laptop for everyday use.  A little too slow to be a great development machine, but it does a fine job with all of the other things that take up a lot of my time, and it's a great size for travel, which is the reason I chose it.  I use VNC to my desktop shared via the Vino server for running heavy-duty development tasks like building OpenSolaris images.

Now we just need to include copies of OpenSolaris Bible with each one for the perfect bundle ;-)
