Toshiba Launches New Satellite Notebooks

Toshiba Digital Products Division has let loose a flurry of new Satellite notebook computers, with models designed to meet a number of different customer needs, from digital entertainment hubs to slim and portable to budget-friendly performers. The company has also updated the look of the Satellite line, with entertainment models featuring a new Fusion X2 durable textured surface, raised-tile keyboards, and sizable multitouch trackpads. And all of them are due to land at retails June 20.

“These laptops are ideal for people who want to get the most out of their multimedia and entertainment—whether it’s HD videos and photos, gaming, or music,” said Toshiba America Information Systems VP of product development Carl Pinto, in a statement. “After 25 years in the laptop business, we are still pushing the boundaries of what a laptop can do by inventing new technologies so our customers can experience content in ways they’ve only dreamed.”

toshiba launches new satellite notebooks a665 3d edition  june 2010

The new Toshiba Satellite A665 and Satellite M645 aim to be entertainment powerhouses, and sport a new Sleep-and-Music feature that enables user to use the notebook’s premium harmon/kardon sound systems as a speaker system even when the computers are powered down: just pop an audio source like an MP3 player into the mic input, and you’re good to go. Toshiba is also bundling DVD upconversion into its DVD Player software so standard-definition DVDs look more like HD on the notebooks’ displays. The systems will be available with Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors as well and AMD Phenom II Quad Core chips; they’ll also be available with Nvidia GeForce 310M or GT330M graphics (with Optimus technology to use power-sipping integrated graphics). Prices will start at $799.99 for the A665 and $729.99 for the M645; both should be available starting June 20.

Not good enough? Toshiba is also launching a Satellite A665 3D Edition with a 15.6-inch, 120 MHz refresh rate display, Blu-ray drive, Nvidia 3D Vision technology (including a sync emitter and shutter glasses), and an Intel Core i7 processor. The 3D edition will sport Nvidia GTS 350M graphics with 1 GB of video memory, along with a spiffy harmon-kardon speaker system. The notebook is designed not only to appeal to folks hooking themselves on 3D entertainment, but also to gamers who want to tap into 3D gaming content. The 3D edition will cost a little extra when it goes on sale June 20: prices start at $1,599.99, and you still have to figure out a way to carry around that emitter and those goggles.
