Toshiba notebooks can now capitalise on DDR memory, with Kingston announcing the availability of its PC2100 DDR small-outline dual in-line memory module (SO-DIMM). The new modules, which come in 128, 256 and 512MB capacities, permit Tecra and Satellite users to increase their memory to 1GB. Kingston worked closely with Toshiba America Information Systems to bring the modules to market.
"Other OEM systems supported will be added as they are released," said Kingston Australasian marketing manager Keith Hamilton. The device delivers a data-transfer speed of up to 2.1Gbps. It is distributed by Dicker Data, Ingram Micro, Simms International and Tech Pacific. The 128MB module holds a recommended retail price of $281, while the 256MB and 512MB modules are priced at $547 and $1495 respectively.
