Toshiba Satellite U200 launches

Toshiba_u200Another small-ish form factor, Intel Core Duo entry hits the mobile market today: Toshiba just rolled out the Satellite U200 with a 12.1-inch WXGA screen. According to Core Duo News, the base specs for $1,159 include:

– 1.66 GHz Intel Core Duo T2300 chip
– 256MB of 533MHz DDR2 RAM
– 12.1″ WXGA (1280×800) display
– Intel GMA 950 graphics
– 40GB 5400 rpm SATA HDD
– CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive
– Intel® PRO/Wireless LAN 3945ABG

Looks like your basic laptop, but of course you can go hog-wild and increase the specifications in just about any area. You can also drop the price a tad by losing the Core Duo and going with a standard Centrino chipset. At a shade over 4 pounds, this is definitely a notebook you can tote around all day and Toshiba is kind enough to include a license for Microsoft OneNote.
