Toshiba has launched four new notebook computer series that strengthen its line-up across all market segments. Leading the new-product offensive is the high-end Tecra M2, which incorporates Intel Centrino mobile technology. Toshiba claims that a new Lithium-ion six-cell battery gives users greater levels of mobile performance, with an extended battery life of up to 10 hours with optional extended batteries, and enhanced wireless connectivity for improved productivity. The Tecra M2 also shares common docking and SlimSelect Bay accessories with other products in Toshiba’s Tecra, Portege, and Satellite Pro ranges. SlimSelect Bay is a multi-purpose facility that increases storage capacity, downloads software, and backs-up vital data. Released simultaneously with the M2 is the Satellite M30 series, which Toshiba is billing as its first mobile Centrino-based widescreen notebook and comes with a 15.4-inch wide-screen display. The M30 series is aimed at small business and small office/home users, balancing multimedia features and style in both work and home environments. It comes with Windows XP Professional or XP Home according to the model selected. The series also includes one-touch TV-out button to easily connect to a projector or television, Secure Digital slot and an iLink (IEEE 1394) port and will retail for around $1,870. The Satellite Pro A40 notebook PC is designed for small/medium sized businesses requiring all the features of a desktop PC but at a low price. Packaged in a newly designed metallic blue case, the Satellite Pro A40 is available in three processor options – 2.4, 3.6 Combo, or 3.6 DVD RW – all offering a robust combination of power, performance and multimedia functionality. A large 15-inch TFT XGA LCD display (1280 x 1024 resolution) is backed by integrated graphics and enhanced multimedia functionality, while SRS TruSurround XT technology creates bass-thumping audio during DVD playback of virtual surround-sound from the notebook’s two speakers. Its A40 series stablemate is aimed at small businesses, students and families who need all the features of a desktop PC at a price starting from $1,450.
