Toshiba Tecra A10, M10 laptops are in Store Now

If you’re thinking of buying a new laptops, perhaps these two latest edition from Toshiba giant can be a good option. With a price of $1249 , which is a bit lower than the initial offer, for the A10 and $1100 for the M10, these two have all the things jammed into them.

Check out their specs, and see whether you agree that it is worth the price tag.

The Tecra A10 has a powerful 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 processors, built-in camera, 2GB DDR2 SDRAM (fast enough to process any data), a whooping 160GB Hard disk with a 7200rpm disk speed, and others stuffs such as Bluetooth, Toshiba’s Easy Guard Technology and a Li-on battery that you can use for 3 hours. Windows Vista Business comes with it and if you think that it is too fancy, you can have it downgraded to the more modest XP Professional. A 15.4-inch screen with WSXGA+ resolution and for the video card it has an NVIDIA’s Quadro NVS in it.

As for the Tecra M10, it has all the specs the A10 has except for the screen and the video card. The M10 has a smaller 14.1-inch TFT LCD with WXGA+ resolution and an Intel GM45 integrated graphics chip for the video card. And the hard disk runs a little bit slower, 5400rpm.

HP selling laptop in messenger bag at Walmart

It looks like HP is doing its part for the environment and, possibly, thieves with its new Pavilion dv6929wm laptop, which does away with the usual excessive packaging and will instead be sold simply in a specially designed "HP Protect" messenger bag. That idea actually came about through a Walmart initiative that asked companies to produce a product that would reduce environmental impact, which HP won, and has now resulted in the laptop being sold exclusively at Walmart stores and Sam's Club locations. Unfortunately, there's not much word on the specs for the laptop itself just yet but, at $798, we wouldn't exactly expect a powerhouse.

Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 Tough As Nails

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 follows the long line of Toughbook laptops that are favored by the military for their well, toughness. This laptop possesses the same rugged features and looks but this time with more consumer appeal. At $3,300 you get the same old tough laptop but this time with the modern features possessed by its competitors. It sure has an intimidating street price but quality does have a price.

With an Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor with a speed of 2GHz the Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 is well-equipped and is capable of running all the basic program you need for your business and more. It has a 1GB RAM and an unbelievable 400GB storage capacity. That and the almost giant 15.4-inch widescreen display could perhaps explain the heavy 7.4 pound weight of this laptop. It promises great images with the ATI Mobility Radeon X2300HD graphics card.

One nice touch in the Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 is the attached briefcase handle which is made possible by the durable exterior molding and framework of the laptop. And just like the typical briefcase, your Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 can be susceptible to accidental bumps but no worries because its chassis has thicker layers of magnesium alloy for protection.

Sony debuts dual-box HD-editing PC

Sony has taken the wraps off a desktop system that contains not only system unit but two, one for the bulk of the PC's innards, the other for the optical drives - one of which is a Blu-ray Disc unit.

Aimed at HD content editors and dubbed the Vaio RM1N, the PC packs in a four-core Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor, 2GB of DDR 2 memory, a pair of 500GB 7200rpm SATA hard drives configured in a RAID 0 set-up for speed, and an Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS graphics card.

The system unit has room for up to four more SATA hard disks, and there are three open PCI-Express slots capable of taking full-length cards.

The main unit also incorporates Gigabit Ethernet, which is realistically something you'd connect and leave. Not so the front-facing four USB and one four-pin Firewire ports, so you're either going to be reaching under the desk every time you want to connect a USB key or digital camera, or you're going to want the system unit on your desk too, which kind of defeats the object of the split design.

Still, the system does come with a pair of colour-coordinated speakers and a standalone jog-dial control to use with the bundled Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 video editing software. The RM1N runs Windows Vista Business.
