Toshiba launches its latest Satellite notebook range

Sydney, AUSTRALIA – May 09, 2011. Toshiba’s latest generation of seven Satellite notebooks launched today are set to turn homes into a technology lifestyle hub thanks to a range of new technologies.

“Consumers are looking to connect, share and enjoy content in their own homes, whether it’s streaming video to their TV, viewing photos, browsing the web or listening to music in high quality. The Satellite range of notebooks ensure seamless connectivity in the home,” Anthony Geronimo, B2C Product Marketing Manager, Toshiba Information Systems Division (ISD).

Paired with Toshiba’s Media Controller, the notebooks make easy sharing of media content with other devices in the home a breeze. Playing a video on the TV, for example, is as simple as dragging the file across to the TV icon.

Some of the stand out technology features that turn homes into an entertainment arena include USB 3.0 for up to 10 times faster data transfer speeds and a 25% increase in battery life across the range. Also included is Resolution+ which automatically converts low definition videos to High Definition meaning you can watch internet videos on your home television in HD.

Incorporating technology style into homes is also easy thanks to a choice of notebooks colours including: luxe white, cool grey, metallic urban and textured black.

“We are operating in a market driven by an increasing trend towards interconnectivity. Today’s wireless world combined with new developments such as DNLA and more powerful CPUs means that true multi-tasking is now a reality,” continued Geronimo.
