Speak of the devil. Earlier this morning, Toshiba announced a pair of new consumer ultraportable laptops that will offer users a choice between a single-core processor and one of those dual-core, SU4000-series Pentiums we were just talking about.
The new series comprises the 13.3" Satellite T135 and the 11.6" Satellite T115. Along with the aforementioned CPU choice, both systems will include DDR3 memory, 250GB of 5,400-RPM mechanical storage, 802.11n Wi-Fi, HDMI out, powered eSATA/USB combo ports, multi-touch touchpads, and six-cell batteries with "up to 9 hours of battery life."
The new Satellites will both ship with Windows 7 Home Premium. As a result, Toshiba doesn't plan to release them until the new operating system comes out on October 22.
The Satellite T115 will start at just $449.99 with a weight of 3.49 lbs and either red or black finishes. You'll have to plunk down $599.99 for the bigger Satellite T135, which will weigh a slightly heftier 3.88 lbs. Toshiba will offer Bluetooth and a white finish as options for that model, though.
