Toshiba Up The Ante In Laptop Stakes

Toshiba’s latest offering in the laptop market offers a huge 512GB SSD

With a density four times that of the next SSD integrated model, the Portégé R600 comes with a 512GB SSD and will also come with 3G mobile broadband.

SSD technology almost eliminates the risk of losing any data that could occur through the constant bumps, knocks and vibrations of everyday use, claims Toshiba. So as your notebook moves with you from the desktop to the coffee shop, to the aeroplane, you can be sure that important files are cocooned from the rough and tumble of daily life.

Using a two-bit-per-cell multi-level NAND flash memory at the 43nm process generation, the unit now has the world’s largest SSD capacity, which means more space for the information that is important to you.

To allow the new SSD to cut power consumption, a controller enables high-speed parallel processing with the multi-level NAND flash memory. This cuts power consumption by approximately 50 percent, according to Samsung.

Additionally, it has an energy-saving design that cuts power consumption by adopting a low voltage CPU. Its trans-reflective LCD also uses natural sunlight to make screen images more visible even without switching on the back light.

The Portégé R600 has a light, (approx 1,095g) thin (19.5mm to 25.5mm) design that integrates the features for mobile notebooks, including long-time battery.
