Cinematic quality viewing experience is no longer the mainstay of the living room; these Toshiba devices just launched allow HD quality on the move so if music and movies are your thing, read on.
The PC maker goes multimedia-mad with its new NB range specifically “designed for people who enjoy listening to music, watching videos and web-surfing on the go”.
The NB550D Mini with a 10.1″ screen is a multimedia haven offering fantastic sound and vision abilities with embedded speakers from Harman/Kardon as well as Dolby Advanced Audio and HD video capabilities.
It also has HDMI connectivity coupled with its own media software allowing high quality content streaming straight to your TV set, marking a new departure for the Japanese laptop kings.
However, with sounds this good, the need to move to the TV might be a waste of time.
The netbook comes with an AMD-C50 Processor as well as Radeon HD 6250 graphics card, allowing gamers to experience the same high end viewing experience.
It has plenty of storage with a 250 GB hard disk drive and is retailing at a very reasonable $499.
It also contains the nifty sleep-and-music function, which allows users play music when the machine is switched off.
The slimline NB500 is similar in size to its bigger brother but is designed with work in mind, with WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, a large multi-control touchpad and palm rest.
Inside is an Intel Atom N455 single Core processor ,1GB DDR3 RAM (running at 1066MHz) which is upgradable to 2 GB and offers similar storage as the NB550D and is an affordable workmate at $399.
“The NB550D and NB500 netbooks fuse capable computing with advanced multimedia functionality,” said Justin White, from Toshiba Information Systems Division (ISD).
“The launch of the new netbook series marks another stage of evolution in the netbook market from Toshiba,” said its makers.
