Taking a look at PCMark05's numbers, the R600 wasn't a performance leader, but it wasn't bad either. It just beat Sony' Vaio TT, it's nearest rival, and was a nose ahead of Lenovo's old ThinkPad X300, though that's using the latter's pre-Centrino 2 numbers.

But the year-old X300's SSD has the R600's Flash drive licked - just as the Toshiba machine's solid-state drive came well ahead of hard drive-based laptops we've tested.
