This post was a long time coming but I only found the SD card that I used to take the pics for this event today. Oh well, better late than never. Anyway, with more and more users clamoring to get the most value for their money, it’s no longer enough to just release a device that has the best specs.
This is especially true in the portable computing arena where stylish design is as much a feature as functionality. With this in mind, Toshiba has launched a range of stylish, high performance laptops to meet the needs and budget of just about any consumer.
Toshiba Portege Z10t
The Portege Z10t addresses the growing demand for multifunctional tablet/laptop convertibles in the business world, giving you the best of both worlds in a single device. You get a full-fledged Ultrabook and a svelte 850 gram Windows 8 Pro-powered tablet at the same time. It features an 11.6 inch full HD IPS touchscreen display and can be armed with up to an Intel Core i7 vPro processor coupled with 4Gb of DDR3 RAM and a 128Gb SSD. There are also Celeron and i5 variants if you don’t quite need all that power.
Being a convertible, you can take the tablet separately when you need the extra portability or keep it docked in laptop mode for full productivity. Unlike other high end options on the market, the keyboard dock doesn’t act as a secondary battery, but that helps keep the weight down so that the entire package isn’t as bulky, even when using the Portege Z10t as a laptop. The hinge doesn’t bend as far back though. The Toshiba Portege Z10t is expected to be priced somewhere between Php70-80k.
Toshiba Qosmio X70
Now, if you’re more into the funner things in life, the Qosmio X70 is the beast you should be looking at. Just sitting there with the keyboards back-lit in red, this massive laptop screams gaming machine. Of course, the Qosmio X70 isn’t just about aggressive looks, although that’s easily one of the best things I like about it.
The Qosmio X70 sports a gargantuan 17.3 inch full HD SuperView LED with a response time of just 8ms. Under the hood, you’ll find up to a 3rd gen Intel Core i7, 16Gb of RAM and Nvidia’s second fastest mobile GPU to date, the GeForce 770M, that’s equipped with 3Gb of GDDR5 video RAM. Four Harman Kardon stereo speakers have also been integrated into the Qosmio X70 so you get full, rich sound even without a headset. This is easily the perfect machine for those LAN party frag fests and should you that gamer’s urge to pick one up, it will retail for an SRP of Php129,990.
Toshiba Satellite P50 and P50t
Naturally, if you’re an average Joe like me, you probably won’t be able to afford the Portege Z10t or the Qosmio X70. That’s why it’s only natural to gravitate toward the more affordable Toshiba Satellite range. The Toshiba Satellite P50 and P50t both sport 15.6 inch full HD displays, an enlarged click touchpad, and a couple of built-in Harman Kardon stereo speakers.
The difference between the two is that the P50 can be powered by a fourth generation Haswell processor coupled with an Nvidia GeForce GT 745M GPU. On the other hand, the P50t is powered by a more modest third generation Core processor with an Nvidia GeForce GT 740M. The Toshiba Satellite P50 retails for Php62,999 while the P50t goes for Php49,990.
Toshiba Satellite Satellite S40t and S40Dt
Now, if you want a notebook with a touch-enabled screen to really maximize your Windows 8 experience, the Satellite S40t and S40Dt are here to satisfy. They both sport a 14.1 inch HD touchscreen capable of 10-point multitouch. You could play a piano app and interact with it directly on the screen if you wanted to, that is, if you can keep it from tipping it over.
You can get up to 750Gb of storage depending on the configuration, and there are some cool features like an integrated optical disk drive, DTS Sound, built-in Onkyo speakers and Toshiba Resolution+ technology. The S40Dt is yours for a cool Php31,990 while the S40t is priced at Php42,990.
Toshiba Satellite L40, L40D and L50
Finally, there’s the L40, L40D and L50, which still manage to offer the everyday user a capable notebook that can provide the computing power needed for those daily computing tasks and enhanced content creation. The L40 series features an integrated optical disk drive, DTS Sound, built-in Onkyo speakers and Toshiba Resolution+ technology. They are available in a range of colors, including Glossy Gold, which is an Asia exclusive. The L40 can be yours for Php37,990 while the L40D is priced at Php28,990.
