Panasonic R4 Laptop Review

Panasonic R4 laptop - Panasonic Let’s Note R4 Notebook Review has a Panasonic R4 review and writes:

The Panasonic R4 is the smallest and lightest notebook of Panasonic’s Let’s Note lineup. Weighing only 2.2lb, Panasonic R4 laptop is also one of the lightest notebooks on the market. The prior model, the R3, was recently updated to the R4. The update included moving to a 1.2 GHz Pentium M processor, the more recent 915GM Intel Chipset, and upgrading to DDR2 ram. Besides the R4 badge, the units casing remained the same. The unit also features an extra long 9 hour claimed battery life.

And the verdict of this Panasonic R4 review:
“All summed up I am very happy with this notebook. I would NOT recommend it to someone shopping for a primary computer who is not planning on taking it with them often. One could buy a notebook with many more features and luxuries for much less money. However for the person looking for a no frills ultraportable with a long battery, lightweight, and compact design this notebook is perfect. I cannot stress enough how small and lightweight this machine is, while still being extremely practical for everyday use.”
