Toshiba brings Tablet PC to retail in New Zealand
The New Zealand office of Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited Information Systems Division (ISD) has released a new range of notebook computers. The range includes four new models and advancements to two of Toshiba’s most popular machines.

The four new models include the Satellite R10 Tablet PC, giving New Zealand retail consumers the opportunity to purchase pen-based mobile computing devices.

Toshiba says that this model is perfect for home-users and students looking for a fast and productive way of editing documents and email whilst on-the go. It features a 14 inch poly-silicon display, pressure sensitive digitiser, a 60GB hard drive and 1.7 MHz processor and 512MB RAM (with a maximum of 2GB). The optical drive can read and write CDs and a variety of DVD formats.

The Satellite R10 is also equipped with Toshiba’s latest ruggedised technology including three-dimensional drop detection technology, which protects the hard disk drive data from sudden impact. The Satellite R10 also comes with an optional Tablet Multi Dock.

The company expects to sell the Satellite R10 from NZ$3,499 (US$2,480) through Harvey Norman and Noel Leeming retail stores.

The new Satellite M40X features a 15.4 inch widescreen display and TruSurround sound for a high-quality DVD playback, plus a six in one PC card slot. The Satellite M40X is available with the Intel Pentium M Processor (Sonoma technology) at either 1.86 or 1.73 GHz. It also features a 40 or 60 GB hard drive and the Toshiba Express Media Player, which allows users to watch DVDs or play music without having to boot up their computers.

The Satellite A50 includes an Intel Pentium M Processor 730, and integrated tri-band Intel 802.11a/b/g WiFi. It also features a 15 inch TruBrite (CSV high resolution) display. Toshiba touts this as an affordable desktop-replacement notebook.

The last new model is the Satellite L10, which is designed for the consumers looking for an entry-level notebook for basic mobile computing. It is powered by an Intel Celeron M processor, comes with Microsoft Office OneNote and DVD SuperMulti multi format drive

Upgrades have been made to current Satellite M40 and Satellite P30 models.
