Toshiba today unveiled the Toshiba Satellite T100 Series, a new class of consumer ultra-thin laptops designed to meet the demands of everyday mobility with laptop-class performance and all-day battery life - with price points starting at $449.99. Toshiba's ultra-thin laptops will be available in two screen sizes and various color options. The Satellite T135 features a 13.3-inch diagonal widescreen display and will be available with Toshiba?s Fusion Finish in Nova Red, Nova Black and Nova White. The Satellite T115 offers an 11.6-inch diagonal widescreen display and will be available in Nova Red and Nova Black. Designed to be stylish both inside and out, Toshiba's Fusion Finish design extends inside the laptop, around the keyboard, touch pad and the display.
Measuring less than one inch thick and starting at 3.5 pounds, the slim and sleek Satellite T100 Series laptops do not cut corners on features or performance. With Windows 7 and power-efficient Intel? ultra-low voltage processors, the new ultra-thin laptops have the performance, flexibility and functionality consumers have come to expect from standard-sized laptops, yet in a highly portable package.
Setting the standard for the next generation of mobile computing, Satellite T100 Series laptops are ready at a moment?s notice, including extremely fast resume from standby times and power saving enhancements that deliver up to 9 hours of battery life.
Lightweight, But Not Light on Features The Satellite T100 Series laptops are engineered to feature the comfort and convenience of a standard laptop yet in an ultra-thin package. The laptops feature full-sized keyboards and full-sized Touch Pads with Multi-touch Control, enabling greater flexibility to browse and control what?s happening on-screen with gesture commands, such as two-finger pinch, swipe, rotate and scroll.
Equipped with Windows 7 Home Premium, spacious hard drives, ultra-fast DDR3 memory and lots of expansion ports, including HDMI-out, the laptops have the horsepower to handle the day?s tasks or evening?s entertainment. Built-in Wireless N technology and Bluetooth (available on select models) keeps users productive, online and in touch.
Smart Features for Greater Mobility Toshiba?s Satellite T100 Series laptops also include a Hard Drive Impact Sensor that guards data from the daily bumps of mobile life and a USB port with Sleep-and-Charge technology, which enables users to charge various consumer electronics, even when the laptop is turned off. A built-in Webcam with Face Recognition makes logging in hassle-free and live chat possible from anywhere, and a standard one-year limited international warranty makes traveling more worry-free.
