“Toshiba is offering a much wider view with its newest Satellite notebook PC. The company on Tuesday launched a new Satellite P25 with a 17-inch, wide-angle display, the largest screen it has offered to date,” reports John G. Spooner for CNET News.com.
“The P25, which will start at $2,099, is the first Windows notebook from a brand-name manufacturer to come with a 17-inch wide-angle display. Apple Computer was first to reach the 17-inch mark earlier this year with its big-screen PowerBook,” Spooner reports. “Along with its larger display, the notebook includes a DVD burner and a 2.8GHz Pentium 4 processor with hyperthreading technology. It also sports 512MB of RAM, a 60GB hard drive, an Nvidia GeForce FX Go5200 graphics card and built-in 802.11b wireless networking.”
“The Satellite’s 17-inch panel offers a maximum resolution of 1,440 by 900 pixels, Toshiba said. The Satellite P25 measures 16.4 inches high by 11.5 inches wide and 1.8 inches thick, making it the largest notebook in Toshiba’s inventory. It’s also the heaviest, weighing in at 9.9 pounds–3.1 pounds more than Apple’s 17-inch PowerBook, though it costs $1,200 less,” Spooner reports.
