Toshiba Satellite T30
Toshiba on Thursday catered to its more serious audience with the Satellite T30, a special Japan-oriented system for business. The line is split into two models for both essentialist users as well as those who need an extra level of speed: the base system ships with a 1.6GHz Celeron M, 512MB of RAM, and an 80GB drive; a next step up adds a much faster 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo as well as a more advanced mainboard for better performance. Either system can be custom-configured with more as the situation demands, according to Toshiba.
Suiting its target market, the T30 ships with either Windows XP Professional or Vista Business. Systems are priced at $1,411 for the Celeron model and $1,628 for the Core 2 Duo variant, both of which reach Japanese stores in late June. Similar systems are available in the US today. [via Impress]
