Toshiba has just announced several new models of laptops, I was thinking of combining the PR, but they’re totally different computers, so we’ll go separately with them.. We’ll start off with the new budget line of Satellite C600 Series laptops. You can get a choice of AMD of Intel CPUS, along with DDR3 ram, and from 250gb up to 320gb hard drives in them. the displays are 720P with the HD TruBrite widescreen. Prices start under $500, so that’s not too bad for a full fledged laptop..
Fully encased in Toshiba’s durable Trax textured finish in Black that helps resist fingerprints, the Satellite C600 Series comes in 14-inch and 15.6-inch diagonal display options. The laptops are equipped with standout features like HD TruBrite widescreen displays, fast DDR3 RAM and hard drives ranging from 250GB to 320GB.
