Kabini laptops available in US

Written by Fuad Abazovic

$399 to $499

It looks like at least three Kabini based notebooks have made it to retail. Thanks to the sharp eye of one of our readers we are happy to report that Gateway has one model out, while Toshiba has two additional ones.

 

The Gateway starts at $399. It has an AMD A4-5000 quad core Kabini clocked at 1.5GHz, it comes with 15.6 inch screen, 4GB DDR3L memory, 500GB hard drive and Windows 8. We don't think this is a full HD display, but we could not find the official spec sheet for this one. The notebook comes with an HD ready webcam (1280x720), A68M chipset, Radeon HD 8330 graphics, Gigabit LAN, 802.11b/g/n support, Bluetooth 4.0+HS, 2 USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0, HDMI, VGA as well as dedicated numeric keyboard, multi gesture touchpad and 4 Cell Li Ion 2500 mAh battery.

Gateway has a similarly spec’d Pentium B960 2.2 GHz that is selling for some $50 less, but it will have dramatically worse graphics performance and two instead of four cores.

Toshiba has two similar models for $479 and $499 and they both come with the same 1.5GHz clocked Kabini A4-5000, 17.3-inch widescreen with 1600x900 resolution and this price makes it one of the more affordable 17-inch notebooks on the market. The Toshiba Satelite C750D-A7213 noetbook comes with 1TB 5400 HDD, DVD super multi drive, 6GB of memory, 2 USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0, multi card reader, LAN, HDMI, RGB and audio and microphone ports. It comes with a 6-cell battery rated at 48Wh and weighs 5.9 lbs (2.6 kg).

The Toshiba Satellite C550D-A5233 is 15.6-inch version based on the same A4-5000 APU, 6GB memory, but it cost some 20 bucks more which hardly makes any sense. It comes with an underwhelming 1366x768 display, 6-cell 48Wh and weighs 5.3 lbs (2.4 kg). It has all the ports you’d get on the 17.3-inch big brother and is ready to ship in three to five days.

You can actually order the Kabini-based Gateway here, or the two Toshibas here and here.
