Prod_satelliter25_30001Maybe the reason Toshiba is having a huge notebook sale is due to new models coming out, which is fine by me. This morning Toshiba announced the Satellite R25-S3503 convertible Tablet PC weighing in at a rather large 5.95 pounds. There is a currently a preconfigured model is on Toshiba’s product page priced at $1,349, but the specs don’t exactly match the press release, which often happens during a product refresh. Here are the specs from the PR:

  • 14.1-inch screen with 1440 x 900 resolution
  • Intel Core Duo Processor T2050 running at 1.6 GHz
  • 100GB high-capacity 5400 rpm Serial-ATA (SATA) hard drive
  • DVD SuperMulti Double Layer drive that reads and writes in up to 11 formats
  • 1 GB of memory, expandable up to 4 GB
  • Intel PRO/Wireless(6) Network Connection 3945ABG
  • 6-cell (4700mAh) Lithium Ion battery

This is a bit hefty of a Tablet, especially for the targeted audience: students and small businesses. I’d like to see the StudentTabletPC folks "weigh" on on this one…

the weight doesn’t really bother me with this machine. The sheer brawn and affordability more than balance out this machine. It may be heavy but its powerful and if Toshiba really is serious about selling the machine at that price, then i’m sold. I can’t wait for it to be avaliable.
