Toshiba unveils ’06 notebook range

Auckland, 21 February 2006: The New Zealand office of Toshiba (Australia) Pty.

Limited Information Systems Division (ISD) today unveiled its primary range of notebook computers for 2006, for both business and consumer use.

The range includes two new business notebooks: the Portégé M400 tablet PC, and Tecra M5; and three new retail models: Satellite M100, Satellite A100, Satellite P100. This is in addition to three business models that were launched in January to coincide with the introduction of Intel’s dual core platform: the Satellite Pro P100, Tecra A7 and Tecra A6; plus two other consumer models that have been refreshed: the Satellite M50, Satellite M70; and the Satellite R10 consumer tablet PC and miniature PC, the Libretto U100, which remains current.

Toshiba focused on three areas in developing the new models: environmental protection via full RoHS compliance; best-available performance through Intel’s new dual-core platform, which is offered across the range; and specific to the business range, comprehensive security, data protection and connectivity features via Toshiba ‘EasyGuard’.

Callum Eade, New Zealand Country Manager for Toshiba ISD, said: “2006 is going to be the year of the notebook computer. Notebooks have been outselling desktops in the consumer sector for some time and we expect this will happen in the business sector early this year.”

“To this end, notebooks are becoming faster and more specialised according to need: our range of business products focuses on security and ruggedisation, with features that were previously only available in high-end machines now standard across the range. In our retail range, more attention has been taken to ensure the best multimedia quality and ease-of-use.”
