updated 11:25 am EDT, Tue September 26, 2006

Toshiba Satellite C2D

Toshiba used the initial unveiling of the mobile Core 2 Duo processor to update its HD DVD-equipped Qosmio line. The computer maker is now using the wider availability of these chips to upgrade the performance of its less expensive Satellite line. Most prominent is the gaming-oriented Satellite P105, a 17-inch laptop which starts with a 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo and can be upgraded to a 2GHz model with 2GB of RAM and a GeForce Go 7900 GS video chipset. Similarly improved is the Satellite R25 convertible tablet PC with a 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 100GB hard drive. Lastly, Toshiba revised the 15.4-inch Satellite A105 and has given its top model a 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM, and 200GB of hard drive space. The new Satellites are shipping now and vary on price depending on configuration; the range-leading P105 model sells for $1999.
