Toshiba World 2012 | Satellite P-series and 17" Qosmio X870 shown off
We're on hand at Toshiba World 2012 in Bonn, and the Japanese manufacturer is busy showing off this year's notebook lineup. As usual, the Satellite P-Series will continue as the "premium" lineup, but Toshiba has added some features to distinguish it from their beginner series. As such, the laptops now is now employ a new aluminum design, Harmon Kardon speakers, hybrid HDDs, and an integrated DVB-T/Analog-hybrid-TV-tuner. The Satellite P family includes the 15.6" P850, P855, as well as the 17.3" P870 and P875.
While the P850 and P870 notebooks will be available with a brushed aluminum design, the P855 and P875 will also feature a special textured "ripple structure". In addition, all P notebooks offer glasses-free 3D technology, but the P855 takes it a step further with Toshiba's unique eye-tracking, which allows simultaneous displaying of both 2D and 3D content. The new P notebooks are expected to make their way to Europe in Q2 of 2012.
Also on hand at Toshiba World were the company's latest gaming notebooks, the Qosmio X870 and X870 3D. Featuring a 17.3" display, the laptops come with Intel's Core i7-3610QM Ivy Bridge processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M. In addition, the laptops include 4 built-in Harmon-Kardon speakers, a red backlit keyboard, 4 USB 3.0 slots, HDMI, Intel Wi-Di 3.0 and Blu-Ray. The Qosmio X870 3D also utilizes a full-HD display with 120Hz refresh rate (luminance 220 cd/m²) and a 5 millisecond reaction time. Both Qosmio notebooks should be available in Q2 of 2012.
