Toshiba U500

Toshiba's Satellite A500: some models have a TV tuner

Top of the list is the multimedia-oriented Satellite A500. It's a 16in machine though the screen's resolution is only 1366 x 768. The A500 will be kitted out with a choice of "latest" AMD and Intel processors, but the spec sheet lists only 2.53GHz and 2.16GHz Core 2 Duos.

Some models have unspecified graphics, others an AMD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 chip. All have a 500GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and four USB ports that can charge connected devices when the laptop's powered down. One the USB slots also doubles up as an eSata port.

Toshiba U500

U500: "innovative design", apparently

That's true of one of the Satellite U500's three USB ports too. Its display is a 13.4in, 1280 x 800 job, and it has 802.11n, a 500GB HDD and Mobility Radeon HD 4570 graphics.

The Satellite L550 has these same specifications, though its display is a 17.3in, 1600 x 900 panel. The Satellite L500 makes do with a 15.6in, 1366 x 768 screen.

Toshiba L500

L500: ready for "everyday computing"

All four machines come with an "Eco Button" which trigger's Toshiba's Eco Utility application, a tweaked power settings tool that undoubtedly gives uses a little more control over their system than Windows Vista alone does.

The L500 kicks off at £449, the L550 at £699, and the A500 and U500 at £599. ®
