Toshiba Satellite C665D uses AMD Brazos
Toshiba as part of its CES rollouts brought out its first notebook based on AMD's new Fusion chips. The Satellite C665D is unique in running on AMD's 1.5GHz E-240 but with the same 15.6-inch display as other Satellites with more power-hungry processors. Toshiba hasn't given battery life figures but, through the Radeon HD 6310 built into the processor itself, should still deliver 1080p video and DirectX 11-grade 3D.
The larger frame gives it typical headroom that allows for up to 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. Toshiba also saw fit to equip the notebook with a DVD burner that contributes to the 5.5-pound weight.
Toshiba should begin shipping the C665D soon with a $399 asking price that puts it in near-direct competition with netbooks.
