THE INQUIRER is at Toshiba World 2011 where Toshiba has unveiled its updated L-series and and P-series laptops.
The L-series will be available in a choice of three screen sizes and a range of configurations. A choice of Intel's Pentium Core i3 or Core i5 processors or AMD E350 processor - only on the L755D - will be available, plus dedicated Nvidia graphics on the higher end models and 3D features.
Toshiba L-series offer 13.3-inch (L735), 15.5-inch (L755 and L755D) and 17.3-inch (L775) screen sizes featuring Trubright HD+ technology with and optional 3D capable Blu-ray player and HDMI connectivity. The largest display will have 1600x900 resolution and the smallest models, 1366x768 resolution.
Thomas Teckentrup, general manager of Toshiba said, "Users have told us CPU performance is most important in laptop followed by graphics performance."
Pre-loaded Toshiba video player 3D software will be able to convert 2D images to 3D, which can be output to a 3D capable TV, the firm added.
WiFi connectivity will come as standard with optional USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0. Windows 7 Home Premium will be pre-loaded on the full range of L-series laptops, which range between 4GB and 8GB of RAM and have a choice of 320GB and 750GB hard drives.
The P-series laptops are much the same as the L-series, also shipping with Windows 7 Home Premium. The 17.3-inch (P775 and P750) and 15.6-inch (P775 and P770) models are the options this time and all will have 8GB of RAM and 750GB hard drives. USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0 will be available on the higher end models, with WiFi standard on all.
An optional Blu-ray drive will be available on the 15.6-inch P755 and P750.
The main difference between the L-series and P-series laptops is that the P-series model feature second generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors. The P755 model ships with a dedicated Nvidia 3D graphics card and a pair of 3D shutter glasses. µ
