Toshiba unveils two new notebooks in Satellite series

Toshiba announces two new Satellite notebooks: the L305-S5921 and the E105-S1402.

Toshiba continues its lineup with a couple of new notebooks from its Satellite series.


First up is the 15-inch Toshiba Satellite L305-S5921, an average, entry-level notebook that will suffice for the student on a budget. Don't expect to find a FireWire port, Bluetooth, or a Webcam on this unit, but do expect to see the usual row of media-control keys for pause, stop, rewind, and fast forward and two programmable keys defaulted to mute and open Windows Media Player. Also on this notebook are three USB ports, a 4-in-1 Bridge Media Adapter, and an Express Card slot. It comes packed with 2GB of DDR2 SDRAM--upgradeable to 4GB--a 160GB HDD, and 128MB of Intel integrated graphics. Running on the T3400 Pentium processor, this system is available now for $549.


Second on the list is a Best Buy Blue Label exclusive retailing for $1,199. The 14-inch Toshiba Satellite E105-S1402 is a thin and light laptop and weighs less than five pounds. It features a built-in Webcam with face recognition, Bluetooth, 5-in-1 Bridge Media Adapter, two USB ports, including one e-SATA/USB combo port with sleep and charge capability. It also comes installed with 64-bit Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 and comes packed with a hefty 320GB HDD, 4GB DDR2 SDRAM, and 128MB dedicated Intel integrated graphics, all on a powerful Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 processor.

Also, for those wanting to personalize their laptop experiences, Toshiba Direct is offering customized color lids for its Toshiba Portege A600-ST2230, A600-ST2231, and A600-ST2232 in Liquid White, Satin Pink and Liquid Black, as well as for the Toshiba Satellite M300-ST3402 and M300-ST3403 in Ruby Red and Frost White. These models are available now on Toshiba's Web site and start at $879.
