Toshiba Satellite WXW

Toshiba was quickest to take advantage of NVIDIA's new GeForce 8700M GT by announcing its new 17-inch Satellite WXW for Japan. Dedicated to gaming, the system uses a 256MB version of the graphics chip to push performance in 3D titles and in Vista Home Premium; it also includes HDMI output for playing games and videos directly from HDTVs when the 1680x1050 main display is not enough. The WXW is one of Toshiba's Santa Rosa models and is equipped with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo on a faster 800MHz bus as well as a 1GB Turbo Memory cache for quicker load times.

A stock model ships with 1GB of memory, a 120GB hard drive, a DVD rewriter, and a 1.3-megapixel webcam for the equivalent of $1,805. Toshiba also offers a second model with 2GB of memory for $1,929. Though no American version has been announced, an equivalent is likely to appear within the next several weeks. [via Impress]
