Toshiba's new retail notebook takes the idea of remote computing literally, incorporating a remote control device as part of the vendor's move to offer a new range of lifestyle features. The Satellite 5110 replaces Toshiba's 5100 notebooks and features a 1.8GHz Pentium 4 mobile processor and nVidia GeForce4 440 graphics with 64 MB DDR memory. However, it is features like a back-lit touch-sensitive touchpad that differentiate the device on retail shelves. Dubbed the cPad, the touchpad allows users to launch applications and scroll through documents. Similarly, the remote allows users to playback movies or navigate other applications. The notebook also features Harmon/Kardon speakers, a subwoofer and a 15-inch TFT UXGA Active Matrix screen with a resolution of 1600x1200. Prices for the Satellite 5100 start at $6499.www.isd.toshiba.com.au.
