Toshiba X205 Preview

Toshiba today gave a preview of its upcoming Satellite X205 notebook that provides full details of the system in advance of its release. Shown in Europe as the X200-20, the 17-inch system will stand in as a desktop replacement and will include either a 256MB or 512MB GeForce 8700M GT to appeal to gamers, depending on the model. Every version will have a harman/kardon sound system with Dolby Home Theater for producing both virtual surround through included speakers and full surround through external hardware, Toshiba says.

In Europe, the X-series Satellite will be available at two price points of 1,599 ($2,142) and 1,999 ($2,678) depending on performance; the basic model will ship with the 256MB GeForce chipset and a single 200GB hard drive, while the top model will double video memory, use dual 160GB hard drives, and should also increase the main system memory. US versions should see an announcement during the summer and may lower the price. [via Akihabara]
