Toshiba releases budget laptops

Written by Nick Farrell



Satellites based on AMD and Intel chips


Toshiba has announced Satellite laptops based around the new processors from Intel and AMD.

The laptops starting at US$399 and include the Satellite L-series and C-series mainstream laptops will come with screen sizes ranging from 14 inches to 17.3 inches. Toshiba said in a statement that the laptops are affordable, thinner and lighter than previously comparable models.

The C800 models are the cheapest and start at $399, while the three models in the L800 series start at between $449 and $599. The laptops will become available early in the third quarter, Toshiba said. These will use Intel's new Ivy Bridge based Core products and AMD's upcoming chips code-named Trinity.

Toshiba's new laptops will help set the stage for another chapter in the ongoing chip battle between Intel and AMD. Intel claims better chip performance, while AMD has said it will undercut Intel on price and enable more affordable laptops.

Toshiba also announced Qosmio X875 and Qosmio X875 3D laptops for enthusiasts that will use Intel's Ivy Bridge processors and Nvidia's latest graphics GeForce 670M graphics processor. The laptops are priced at around $1,299 and will become available in the early part of the third quarter.
