Toshiba Introduces Windows 7 Features on New Satellite Laptops

Toshiba today unveiled several enhancements to its line of Satellite laptops that take advantage of new capabilities in Windows 7.

Two new Satellite laptops will feature touch screens, the Satellite U505 Touch and Satellite M505 Touch models.

Users now will have a new choice in ways to interact with their laptop, whether flicking through photos, shuffling files, browsing online or playing games, utilizing Windows Touch-enabled functionality. The new Satellite M505 Touch and Satellite U505 Touch laptops let users tap, drag-and-drop and scroll through files, Web pages and images.

To bring the new Windows Touch feature to life, Toshiba is also introducing new touch-ready software pre-installed exclusively on the new touch-enabled laptops, called Toshiba LifeSpace. LifeSpace consists of two applications:

- Bulletin Board ? Gives users fast access to day-to-day activities, tasks and projects in a simple and fun way. Get creative when organizing projects with the ability to drag and drop photos, videos, links, documents and applications into one place. Personalize and organize the board by moving, rotating and resizing using gestures to fit personalized style. Bulletin Board also includes several built in gadgets such as labels, calendars, a clock and a to-do list.
- ReelTime ? Helps users easily find files based on when they were opened with a simple, fun visual history. With the flick of a finger, quickly scroll through automatically generated previews of documents, photos, videos and more, filter by file type or use the calendar to go back weeks or months.

Toshiba will also deliver a simplified, clean desktop on all new Windows 7 laptops. Out of the box, customers will simply have the Recycle Bin on their desktop and minimal software running in the background like anti-virus on startup. As a result, startup, shutdown and Fast Sleep-and-Resume performance will be improved.
