Japanese tech giant Toshiba has announced that over the next six weeks it will debut a reconfigured line of its Satellite laptops, with some built to work optimally with Windows 10.
The cheapest models are in the no-frills C-Series, which start at $350. The C-Series (Toshiba Satellite C75 laptops, pictured above), which are constructed of plastic, comes in 15.6- and 17.3-inch sizes, and include optional touch capability, Skullcandy audio, and a DVD optical drive. Storage is available up to 1 TB with a standard hard drive. The series goes on sale next week.
A Step Up
The Satellite L-Series, starting at $530, comes in the same form factors as the C-Series, but represents a step up in most other categories. It can be configured with Intel or AMD processors, up to 16 GB of memory, and optional full HD IPS displays. The L-Series will boast up to 1 TB of storage space, with either hard drive or solid-state storage available. Wireless options include 802.11n and 802.11ac. The 15.6-inch L-Series models will be available starting next week, with the 17.3-inch model not available until July 29.
The new version of the Satellite S-Series has full HD and 4K display options, with 15.6-inch and 17.6-inch models. They come loaded with Windows 10, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Intel Core i7 processors. They can be configured with up to 16 GB of RAM, optional Nvidia graphics, and either a single hard drive or up to 1 TB of hard drive space and 128 GB solid-state drive. The smaller model arrives with three USB 3.0 ports, while the 17.3-inch model has two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports. All S-Series models are outfitted with HDMI out and 4K output capability. The Satellite S-Series will also go on sale on July 29, with the smaller model starting at $720.
New from Toshiba is the Satellite Fusion 15, a convertible 2-in-1 laptop with a 360-degree hinge that adapts to modes, including tablet and stand. Available now and starting at $650, it comes with numerous Windows 10 features, including the Cortana search button included in the models above, and sensors for Windows Continuum, allowing easy switching between laptop and tablet modes. The Fusion 15 is available with Intel Core processors, up to Core i7, with up to 12 GB of RAM, and storage options up to 1 TB hard drive or 128GB SSD.
Finally, Toshiba’s Satellite Radius series is getting updated for Windows 10. Also new is the option for a 15-inch display with a 4K display or a 14-inch model to go with a previous 11-inch version. The new Radius 15 and Radius 15 4K Ultra HD Edition, available exclusively through Best Buy, will be available with Intel Core processors, while the Radius 14 comes with either an Intel or AMD processor. The Satellite Radius 14 will start at $585.
