Toshiba today announced four new models in its Satellite Pro range.
The new laptops provide plenty of multimedia features supporting professionals during their work or serving as an entertainment device. The devices will be available during the second quarter of 2010 throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Compared to their equivalents in the consumer targeted Satellite range, the Satellite Pro C650 / C650D, L630, L650 and L670 come with some changes and additions appropriate to business needs - for example Gigabit Ethernet , connectivity for a high speed LAN connection and preinstalled Windows 7 Professional. Some models of the Satellite L650 and the Satellite L670 will also be available later with a non-reflective display.
The new Satellite Pro devices also feature an optional Blu-ray Disc rewritable drive, (playback, recording & rewriting content up to 50GB on a double layer disc), Dolby Advanced Audio, , HDMI-out, to connect to a TV set, and Toshiba Media Controller for easy content streaming. All Satellite Pro laptops come in a black design.
The new ultra-portable 33.8 cm (13.3") Satellite Pro L630 is very slim and light, it offers a full-size flat keyboard and, like the larger models, a Touch Pad with Gesture Control. A 3D sensor protects data stored on the hard disk drive in case of shocks or drops and prevents the optical disk drive from opening unintentionally while being carried.
For the many users who still prefer to connect their consumer electronic devices via an analogue connection the glossy black XV series also offers analogue ports such as SCART, composite video, component, analogue audio input, PC-input (VGA), headphone socket and woofer out.
Targeted at professionals with everyday computing needs the Satellite Pro L650 features a 39.6cm (15.6") HD display with LED backlighting.
The 39.6cm (15.6") Satellite Pro C650 features an Intel CPU while the C650D utilises an AMD processor.
