Toshiba Satellite S9337
Toshiba early this morning gave two of its gaming-friendly notebooks an upgrade to Microsoft's just-released Windows Vista. Complementing earlier upgrades to basic models, the newer Satellite P105 S9337 and S9339 ship with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate respectively while offering upgrades to reflect the new operating system. Both versions ship with a 200GB hard drive and 2GB of RAM to run Vista smoothly; both also have the CPU and graphics hardware of Toshiba's fastest notebooks and carry a 2GHz Core 2 Duo as well as 256MB GeForce 7900 GS video chipsets for faster 3D performance. Bluetooth 2.0, a DVD rewriter, and harman/kardon speakers also transition over to the new models, the company says. Toshiba is already shipping the two S933x models to retail stores at prices of $2,000 and $2,100 respectively.
