Toshiba has given its notebook computer lines a shot in the arm. New systems
include the Tecra 8100, which comes equipped with desktop processing power
and a remote diagnostic tool.
"The Tecra 8100 with the 750 MHz processor allows the federal user to
get the fastest CPU possible in the mobile space," said Craig Marking, product
manager for the Tecra and Portege notebook lines at Toshiba America Information
Systems Inc.'s Computer Systems Group.
The Tecra 8100 also includes the new VirtualTech feature, an interactive
electronic support function that can quickly send a full system report to
a Toshiba technician.
"It's perfect for a government agency with a small or [nonexistent]
IT staff," said Marc Tanguay, director of product marketing for portables.
Toshiba also refreshed its Portege series with the new 3480CT, 7200CTe
and 7220CTe, as well as unveiling the Satellite Pro 4300 series, Marking
The Tecra 8100 is available now for about $4,300. Notebooks in the Portege
and Satellite Pro series will be ready for shipping by the end of the month,
with prices starting at around $2,000.
