Toshiba Notebooks With OpenSolaris - The Java Workstation?
I installed during a not so exciting, sponsored keynote at JavaONE OpenSolaris in VirtualBox - it worked perfectly. Recently I saw at Devoxx Brian Leonard's session about OpenSolaris, TimeSlider, VirtualBox and testing - everything worked really well. I was especially impressed by the VirtualBox and ZFS integration. So far it looks promising - the remaining challenge is good device (w-lan, graphics device etc.) support for notebooks - I just remember the old linux days :-). It seems like Toshiba will ship some notebooks with OpenSolaris - this is interesting. What's about lenovo? It would be the next step... :-)
Lenovo notebooks with preinstalled solaris would be like Macbooks with preinstalled Windows. It may be open - but it is still solaris... :-)

The Toshiba Satellite U400/U405 series is a new 13.3" widescreen notebook that weighs in at just 4.85 pounds and packs solid Intel Core 2 Duo Penryn performance and a big hard drive with plenty of storage space. Add to that a stylish chassis covered in Toshiba's new "Fusion" finish, 3GB of RAM, a webcam, and fingerprint reader and this notebook starts looking even better. Toshiba calls this notebook a "compact hero [that] balances working room with carrying comfort." Let's take a look and see if this laptop is as good as it sounds.

Based on the specs, I wouldn't disagree with the title given "compact hero". But I'm still waiting for the product review and its performance rate.
