Toshiba is introducing a line of ultra-thin consumer notebooks to the market through the newly launched Toshiba Satellite T100 Series. These laptops are designed to combine computing power with portability. Though the computers themselves will be less than an inch thick and weigh as little as 3.49 pounds, they will be well-equipped with energy efficient processors to maximize battery time, fast DDR3 memory, and the latest Windows 7 operating system. Read on for the full specs, photos, and Toshiba’s video overview of the series.
The two notebooks in the Satellite T100 Series are the Toshiba Satellite T135 and the Toshiba Satellite T115. The main difference between the two models is their size: the T135 has 13.3-inch widescreen HD backlit display, while the T115 is equipped with an 11.6-inch one. Otherwise, the two laptops are practically identical. The base models for both come with a 250GB hard drive, upgradable DDR3 memory, an Intel Pentium SU4100 processor, and Windows 7 Home Premium. The 6-cell battery, which is included in both models, can provide you with up to 9 hours of use before requiring a recharge. If you order from ToshibaDirect, you’ll be able to customize the notebooks to increase hard drive size, change the processor, or upgrade the system memory.
As you can see from the photos, there will be several different color schemes available for the notebooks including Nova White, Nova Black, and Nova Red. Due to the different screen sizes, there’s a small weight difference- the T135 weighs 3.88 lbs, while the T115 is 3.49 lbs.
The Toshiba Satellite T135 and T115 will sell for $599.99 and $449.99, respectively, with prices increasing if you choose to add extra features or purchase upgrades. The Satellite T100 Series will be available around October 22nd, in conjuncture with the Windows 7 release date.
