Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Toshiba's wireless Satellite Pro 4600 and Tecra 8200 notebooks hit the market yesterday.

The notebooks will connect to a network hub within a range of 100 metres, the company says, using "WiFi" technology housed in a unit in the laptop's lid. WiFi is Toshiba's "cute" name for the 802.11b connection protocol.

The Tecra 8200 runs either a 750MHz or 850MHz Pentium III processor. It has 128MB or 256MB SDRAM; and 10GB or 20GB hard drives, respectively. Prices range from £1999 to £2699.

Entry level Satellite Pro's come equipped with Celeron 650's, a 10GB hard drive and 64MB of SDRAM. The WiFi technology is not standard on these machines, priced at £1199.

Spending a little more cash - up to £2099 - will get you a mobile PIII 700, 750 or 800MHz processor, up to 20GB of hard drive space and 128MB of SDRAM, expandable to 512MB. ®
