Toshiba has launched its thin and light full-featured notebook: the Toshiba Portege 2010. The notebook gets up to 6.5 hours of battery life and features new polysilicon display and hard drive technology. “We’ve reached the extremes of what a traditional notebook can look like now,” said Laurie White, Toshiba product marketing manager. “It’s about as light and as thin as we can make them.” The 2010 features Secure Digital and Type II/PC card and USB connectivity, as well as an Intel Pentium III 866MHz processor and 256MB RAM. It also uses a Lithium Polymer battery that can be molded thinner than was possible with previous battery technologies. A 40GB, the 1.8-inch Ultra ATA/100 hard drive is the smallest high capacity hard drive on the market. Pricing is to be confirmed, but the initial cost is estimated at $4290.
