Toshiba introduces Satellite L800 lineup
The Japanese corporation earlier last week announced a wide range of new products, including the Qosmio X870 and updates to the Satellite C Series and the Satellite P Series for budget use and glasses-free 3D multimedia use, respectively. Amongst the new announcements, Toshiba has revealed some new notebooks for the Satellite L Series as well.
Called the Satellite L800 series, these mainstream notebooks have been designed to replace desktops with screen size offerings starting at 13.3-inches up to 17.3-inches. Five initial models will be made available (Satellite L855, L875, L830, L850 and L870), each with Intel or AMD CPUs, 2x USB 3.0 and 1x USB 2.0, HDMI and options for up to 1TB HDD with a Blu-ray or DVD drive. Display resolution ranges from 1366x768 up to 1600x900 pixels, depending on the model size. While there won’t be any options for a native 1080p display, users will at least be able to view 3D content on Blu-ray with a 3D-compatible external HDTV.
The official press release (PDF) lists the units above as shipping this Q2 2012 with “the latest Intel processors or AMD processors”, so we can only assume that these units will be sporting Intel Ivy Bridge chipsets. Prices have yet to be confirmed, but we expect these notebooks to appeal to more budget-conscious consumers considering the specs so far.
