  1. Panasonic is shipping what it says is Earth's lightest 12.1-inch laptop with a built-in DVD drive. At only three pounds, the Toughbook S9 is apparently leaner than competing mobile PCs, with specs including a 2.4GHz Core i5-520M vPro CPU, 2GB of RAM (supports as much as 6GB), 320GB of storage, a DVD burner, and up to 11 hours of battery life. It also sports a 1280x800 anti-glare display, a fingerprint reader, HDMI and VGA-out, as well as gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and optional WWAN connectivity.

    Looks good but having a case made from Magnesium concerns me with a lot of portable devices having battery issues.
  3. LOL it's funny because it's explosive! Im sure a laptop blowing up in a company head's lap will sure "put some money" into research batteries that don't explode!

    What's with the circular touch pad? I'm not sure if I like that. And the battery life is up to 11 hours before it imminently explodes, right?
