Qosmio X70, Satellite P-series, Satellite S40 series
Toshiba has announced a slew of products including Qosmio and Satellite P-series gaming laptops, Satellite S40 series laptops for everyday use, Portégé Z10t Ultrabook, Excite Pure / Write tablets running on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean platform, Canvio Connect portable hard drives, palm-held Camileo X150 Full HD camcorder, and a USB Mobile LED Monitor.
Aimed at power users that require highest computing performance and speed rates, high-end graphics, brilliant sound and multimedia capacities, as well as advanced connectivity features, the Performance Series Qosmio X70 powers on Intel Haswell Quad-core processors, and dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M graphics with 3GB of GDDR5 memory. Offering a choice of a 1TB plus ultra-fast mSATA 256GB SSD memory or a Hybrid HDD (1TB + 8GB flash SDD), the system is further fuelled by up to 32GB of RAM capacity, and comes preloaded with the Toshiba Resolution+ software which up-converts movies and videos created in standard definition to HD quality.
Also, the 17.3-inch gaming laptop houses an UHD supporting HDMI-out port that up-converts and outputs Ultra HD content such as PC games, still pictures, movies or videos from the PC to an external Ultra HD capable TV. Equipped with four Harman Kardon stereo speakers with 6W music output tuned with the DTS Studio Sound flagship solution suite, the Qosmio X70 comes in the all new Black Cavalier design - with its tiled, frameless keyboard illuminated in red, enabling convenient text input and navigation even in low light conditions - just what gamers need.
The P-series features two gaming models - the lightweight Satellite P50 with Intel Core i7 Quad-core processor, and the touch-friendly Satellite P50t with 10-point touch support. The latter comes with an intuitive edge-to-edge Full HD touchscreen with ten-point touch and swipe support, while all versions include an enlarged click touchpad that's ideal for navigating through the Windows 8 interface with finger movements without using a touchscreen.
Harmon Kardon speakers with Slip Stream technology projects sound excellently, while the DTS Studio Sound audio enhancement solution offers a more precise, richer, and more immersive audio experience. The Toshiba Split Screen Utility allows active windows to be arranged automatically and orderly on the screen, making multi-tasking easy. Like the Qosmio X70, the 15.6-inch P-series also comes equipped with UHD support via HDMI-out port on some models, and a tiled, frameless backlit LED keyboard.
Satellite S40 series
Enveloped in a brushed aluminum ice metallic silver finish, the Satellite S40 series powers on the latest Intel Core low power consumption processors, along with Intel HD, and NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M with Optimus technology. The 14.1-inch Satellite S40t laptop comes stocked with an integrated Optical Disk Drive and a full array of built-in ports, Toshiba’s USB Sleep & Charge technology, and a tiled keyboard with glossy frame and matte keys coupled with a large ClickPad with modern gesture support to maximize Windows 8 features.
The built-in Onyko speakers incorporate DTS Sound, while the versatility of a 10-point touch display makes controlling and navigating a laptop as intuitive and convenient as using a smart phone or a tablet. Similar to the Satellite P-series, the Satellite S40 series also comes pre-installed with Toshiba Split Screen Utility.
