    What is the difference between two models Portege R700 and Satellite R630?
    Is it only fingerprint reader, dock station port and more powerful configuration (CPU, SSD, Wi-fi Type 802.11n, )?
    Is it the same body materials used? Is it the same weight?

    I found such compare:

    Hi snicker_1,

    There are a lot of differences between these models and also there are different R700 and R630 models on the market.

    In my opinion you should check the Toshiba website about these notebooks. There you can see what models are currently available and the configuration.

    Satellite R630 page:

    Do you know is it the same body materials used? Is it the same weight for all models with no SSD drive?

    Hi dude

    I think the user manuals of both notebooks would be interesting for you.
    Here you can download both user manuals.
    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/ -> Support & Downloads -> Toshiba User Manual

    There you can find all necessary info.

    In the past Toshiba has offered optically same notebooks but with different model names. Both models have had also the same manuals.
    As you can see both notebooks are optically absolutely the same. The same notebook case will be used on both of them.

    Main difference is that Portege notebooks are business notebooks and designed for professional usage and offer more security features (fingerprint), maybe different HDDs and so on.
    Satellite notebooks are designed, more or less for “standard” usage. If you compare the price of these notebooks you will understand what I’m talking about.

    In my opinion this question about weight is not so interesting and so important. If there is some difference around 30 gram it cannot be so important. Fact is that both notebooks are ultra light and ultra portable notebooks.

    Design is fantastic, notebook is not too big and you can take it with you everywhere. With simply words – brilliant notebook.
