Toshiba displays mini-notebook

Toshiba showed off for the Japanese market a new mini-notebook that the company claims can provide up to 14 hours of battery life. Part of the power savings comes from a low-temperature polysilicon display, Toshiba said. A larger, optional battery has to be used to achieve the longest battery time. The new notebook contains a 5800 Crusoe processor from Transmeta, a 20GB hard drive and 256MB of memory; it runs at 800MHz. It will cost between $1,000 and $1,300, depending on the configuration, and will be officially released May 18. Toshiba is one of Transmeta's largest customers but has not brought one of the notebooks to the United States.
