Toshiba T115D, T135D get AMD CULV alternative

Toshiba's Satellite T100 series expanded significantly on Wednesday with the rollout of AMD-based processors in the mix. Instead of the Intel CULV processors of before, the T115D and T135D have the option of the Athlon Neo, the dual-core Athlon Neo X2 or (on the T135D) the Turion Neo X2. They all give performance beyond that of a netbook but, because of the Radeon HD 3200 video, should be faster than the Intel-based models in graphically intensive tasks.

As with the Intel models, the AMD Satellites are split by screen size and performance. The T115D uses an 11.6-inch display and is limited to just the two Athlon Neo processor choices; it comes with 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, optional Bluetooth and a 5.5-hour battery. Opting for the T135D gets both a 13.3-inch screen as well as the choice of a Turion Neo X2, 4GB of RAM, 320GB of disk space and a 6.2-hour battery.

Either system will come with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and will ship on January 17th, when the T115D will start at $450 and the T135D at $600.
