Toshiba Satellite m115
Having updated its HD DVD-playing Qosmio laptop as well as its larger Satellites with the faster Core 2 Duo, Toshiba is ready to update one of its smaller models. Its Satellite M115-S3144 is its first 14-inch laptop to use the Core 2 Duo and also contains a few pleasant additions for its class. The CPU is only a basic 1.6GHz model, but the system ships with a surprising 2GB of RAM and 120GB of hard drive storage. Toshiba also gives this latest Satellite a significant multimedia component through harmon/kardon stereo speakers and dedicated media controls that can play CDs and DVDs without booting the system. The new model ships within one to two weeks for $1249.
