Built-in FM Tuner: A built-in FM tuner allows users to enjoy their favorite FM radio broadcasts while working on their Satellite laptop. eSATA Port: An eSATA port enables the high-speed transfer of files between the laptop PC and an external hard drive with transfer rates that are up to five times faster than standard USB 2.0. Sleep-and-Charge USB Ports(3): Users can charge their portable electronic devices such as MP3 players, mobile phones, digital cameras or PDAs with Sleep-and-Charge USB ports, whether the laptop is powered-on, off or in hibernation mode. Face Recognition: Each Satellite laptop PC is equipped with TOSHIBA Face Recognition software, an innovative feature which offers users a fun and convenient way to access their computer using its embedded Webcam. Additionally, each new Satellite delivers premium audio, through a set of Harman Kardon® stereo speakers for a rich, cinema-like sound experience. Meanwhile, select Satellite models come equipped with Toshiba's REGZA LINK™ (HDMI-CEC) technology empowering users with instant and automated device configuration and the ability to control linked HDMI-CEC enabled devices, such as Toshiba's REGZA™ HDTVs and a Satellite laptop PC, with a single remote.
