Toshiba has announced a major revamp of its range of notebook PCs. The Toshiba Satellite 1700, Satellite 2800 and Tecra 8100 have all been overhauled as part of a drive to “enhance mobile lifestyles” by Toshiba.

The Satellite 1700 is aimed at the consumer market, with an Intel Celeron 600Mhz or 650MHz chip, external CD contols, and Windows ME pre-installed.

The 2800 is a multimedia machine with 15” screen, Intel Celeron or Pentium III processor at clock speeds of up to 700MHz, 8xDVD-ROM as standard, an S3 Savage/IX graphics controller with 8MB video memory and a Yamaha sound system with enhanced sub-woofer and stereo speakers.

The Tecra is Toshiba’s business machine, and is offered with a wide range of options for maximum flexibility. An 850MHz PIII chip is standard, as is a 20GB hard drive. Connectivity options include the 10/100 Network Port Replicator II with built-in Ethernet, Enhanced Port Replicator V or the Expansion Station for complete desktop capabilities. The system is configured for the longest life cycle possible (18 months) and has a range of software support to make it easily configurable to fit business infrastructure.

“Toshiba maintains its technology leadership with the latest advancements in mobile computing,” said Wu Tengguo, deputy general manager with Toshiba computer systems division.

The company also announced that it will be displaying a range of mobile computing solutions at Gitex 2000 in Dubai. The “Always Connected” showcase will display feature Toshiba products and a demonstration of a wide range of new technologies such as Bluetooth, wireless LAN and GSM connectivity.
