Toshiba this afternoon brought its holdout Satellite P100 series of gaming portables into 2007 with updates for Windows Vista. Every model in the updated line is preloaded with Vista Ultimate for full support of Media Center and key extras like DreamScene video backgrounds. A 512MB GeForce Go 7900 GTX graphics chip is also embedded for better 3D performance.
The reference model is the ST9752 with a 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of RAM, 120GB of hard disk space and a 1440x900 screen at $1,999. At the next level is the ST9762 ($2,499), which boosts CPU performance to 2GHz, upgrades storage to 160GB, and sharpens the display to 1680x1050. Finally, the pinnacle ST9772 at $2,899 keeps the enhancements of the ST9762 while doubling the RAM to 2GB. Toshiba is stocking the updated P100 today.
