Toshiba Portege 3010 & 3020
Toshiba put a lot of effort into the notebook construction in order to create such a thin design. Exceeding the function and size of other companies' computers, a high-density medium alloy design was used to allow optimal heat dissipation.
Using this design allowed the CPU (running at 266/300 MHz) to run without the need for noisy fan cooling.
