Toshiba's UX: 10in netbook

The netbook series will feature a 1024 x 600 display – as seen on the NB100, reviewed here - and have Intel’s 1.66GHz N280 Atom processor under the hood. Each machine will also be fitted with 1GB of memory and a 160GB hard drive.

Exactly how many models the series will contain is still a mystery, but we do know that Toshiba’s boosted the 2.9-hour battery life of the NB100 to four hours on the UX series.

UX netbooks will measure 263 x 192 x 31mm and weigh in at roughly 1.3kg. From the looks of the picture, a webcam's also integrated into the lid.

Toshiba’s UX series netbooks will be available in Japan later this month, priced at between ¥60,000 and ¥70,000 (£484/$707/€545). A wider international launch is expected to follow later. ®
