Toshiba Lifts Gaming Satellites Up a Notch

Toshiba has added three new gaming-friendly systems to its Satellite brand of notebook computers, the Satellite P100-ST9752, Satellite P100-ST9762, and Satellite P100-ST9772. All three systems sport 17-inch LCD displays, Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GTZ graphics controllers with 512 MB of video memory, and Windows Vista Ultimate pre-installed.

"The Satellite P100 notebooks offer mobile gamers the premier gaming and multimedia experience," said Jeff Barney, Toshiba Digital Product Division’s vice president of marketing, in a release. "The integration of Windows Vista along with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor and the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX graphics card all in a single notebook computer, demonstrates Toshiba’s commitment to gamers by providing cutting-edge technologies for navigating through today’s most demanding PC games and digital entertainment."

Thenew Satellites measure just 1.41 inches thick, start to weigh in at 7.1 pounds, feature Intel Core 2 Duo processors, and offer a DVI-D video output if that 17-inch built-in display doesn’t offer enough real estate. The systems offer a DVD±R double layer burner, 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi wireless networking, integrated harmon/kardon stereo speakers, and a bevy of plugs (including four USB 2.0 ports; RGB, S-Video, and the aforementioned DVi-D video output, modem, Ethernet, IEEE-1394, and S/PDIF audio output shared with the headphones). Also on board: a 5-in-1 media reader, an ExpressCard slot, and a PCMCIA Type II slot.

The 9752 features a Core 2 Duo processor running at 1.8 GHz with 2 MB of L2 cache, a 120 GB hard drive, 1,440 by 900 native screen resolution, and 1 GB of RAM. The 9762 bumps up to a 2 GHz Core 2 Duo with 4 MB L2 cache, 1,680 by 1,050 screen resolution, and a 160 GB hard drive, while at the high end the 9772 sports the same specs as the 9762 but with 2 GB of RAM. The 9752s start at $1,999, with the 9762 landing at $2,499 and the 9772s starting at $2,899, and all three are available now through Toshiba Direct.
