Toshiba intros skinny Core i3 laptop
Ultra-low voltage goodness
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. ®
Name one laptop that does not have integrated graphics...
re "shame about the colour scheme"
I like the colour scheme! :-) I just bought my dad one of Toshiba's regular i3 satellite-type laptops and it's really dull and grey! As are most lappies, it feels to me. Ah, there's no accounting for taste!
Integrated graphics. Oh dear.
