Toshiba returns to mini-notebook market with the libretto U100
Toshiba's Digital Products Division is bringing the libretto brand back to the market, with the launch of the libretto U100 mini-notebook computer. The company decided to bring back the full-featured mini-notebook as part of Toshiba's 20th anniversary celebration of the first laptop computer and as a result of customer demand.

Weighing 2.16 pounds, the libretto U100 offers mobile users a compact and lightweight notebook that is easy-to-carry and offers full computing functionality. The new libretto U100 is the first notebook to market with a 7.2-inch diagonal widescreen LCD (1280x768 native resolution WXGA). The libretto U100 integrates an LED backlight for the LCD screen, an industry first, making the screen brighter and easier to read.

The mini-notebook offers a unique keyboard, as well as a half-size 802.11b/g mini-PCI wireless card and 1.8-inch 60GB hard disk drive. New miniaturizing technology on the libretto U100 motherboard -- such as high-density interconnects and component overlays -- reduced the size by about 30 percent.

The Windows XP-based libretto U100 runs on an Intel Pentium M processor (1.20Ghz, 2MB L2 cache, 400Mhz FSB) and comes with 512MB DD 333 MHz RAM. It provides RGB (mini connector), 2 USB 2.0, i.LINK (IEEE-1394), Headphone jack, RJ-45 (10/100 Ethernet) LAN port, RJ-11 V.92 Modem port, and Docking connector.

The Toshiba Hard Disk Drive (HDD) protection system helps safeguard the libretto's hard drive against possible damage resulting from accidental dropping, turbulence or vibration. Through the integration of a 3D accelerometer, the Toshiba HDD protection system detects when the libretto U100 experiences a potentially unsafe environment caused by sudden "acceleration" in any direction. Once danger is detected, the hard drive immediately places itself into a protected mode and parks the hard drive head until the system determines it is safe to resume normal operation.

The mini-notebook offers a new fingerprint authentication, providing users a secure way to protect their personal systems while eliminating the need to remember numerous passwords.
