Toshiba intros notebooks
Toshiba on Wednesday announced it is releasing the Tecra A10 and M10 notebooks. While specs are similar, the A10 packs the hardware into a larger chassis with a 15-inch screen, while the M10 features a 14-inch display. Either notebook is rated to withstand drops and shocks while bringing a fingerprint scanner and Toshiba's EasyGuard technology for system security.
As for specs, all that is known is that either new model will run on Intel's Centrino 2 processor, offer as much as 8GB of RAM and a hard drive capacity of 250GB. Short-range wireless connectivity will be handled by Bluetooth, while built-in Wi-Fi will allow Internet access. The M10 alone will have optional, built-in support of 3G wireless data networks.
The laptops are due for an October release in the UK, with a basic A10 priced at an equivalent of nearly $1,100 while the M10 starts at about $1,200. [viaElectricPig]
