Toshiba intros skinny Core i3 laptop

Ultra-low voltage goodness

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Toshiba, busy today, has introduced the latest incarnation of its thin'n'light Satellite T notebook: a model sporting the ultra-low voltage version of Intel's Core i3-330 processor.

The 1.2GHz i3-300UM contains two cores and HyperThreading to make them appear as four to the host OS - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, in the case of the new Toshiba Satellite T230.

The skinny - 18-34mm front to back - notebook also packs in 4GB of 800MHz DDR 3 memory, a 500GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, an HDMI port two vanilla USB 2.0 ports and a USB/eSata connector.

The whole lot weighs 1.8kg and contains a battery good for eight-and-a-half hours' runtime, Toshiba said. There's no optical drive, mind.

The display is a 13.3in job, almost certainly with a 1366 x 768 resolution, though Toshiba has yet to confirm this, and driven by the Core i3's integrated graphics core.

The T230 goes on sale in July - shame about the colour scheme. There's no word yet on UK pricing. ®
