Toshiba Satellite E45t ultrabook now available for purchase
Toshiba announced the 14" Satellite E45t less than a week ago, together with the 15.6" Satellite E55t/E55Dt. The 14" model can be purchased starting today, while its larger brother is expected to become available during September, most likely at IFA 2013.
Compared to other ultrabooks that offer a lot of choices, the Toshiba Satellite E45t has virtually no options, Best Buy listing a single setup at this time. It has a weight of 4.6 pounds and measures 13.4 X 9.2 X 0.8 inches.
On the inside, we find an Intel Core i5-4200U CPU, with 6 GB of DDR3 memory as standard, expandable to 16 GB. The 14" touchscreen has a resolution of 1366X768 pixels, while storage is being provided by a 500 GB hard drive and a 32 GB SSD. Unfortunately for some, there is no optical drive included. Obviously, the Satellite E45t comes bundled with Windows 8 64-bit.
When it comes to connectivity, there are no surprises - the Satellite E45t offers two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, 10/100 Ethernet and Intel Centrino Wireless-N 7260. The surprise that this ultrabook offers is called Dragon Assistant. This voice recognition tool allows people to easily search the Web, find local content or launch various applications without even touching the keyboard or the screen.
The Toshiba Satellite E45t retails for $699.99 at Best Buy and it is not listed yet on ToshibaDirect. When purchased from Best Buy, the ultrabook has 1 year limited warranty and comes with free shipping.
