The Satellite laptop PC series, including the P300D, A300D, M300D, U400D, L300D and L350D, is offered with variations of AMD's Athlon™ Dual Core QL, Turion™ Dual Core RM and Turion Ultra ZM processor(1) technology, providing consumers with the freedom to choose whichever configuration best suits their needs.

This new AMD platform promises superior performance, enhanced visual graphics and increased battery life. The combination of all these aspects contributes to a balanced laptop platform, which gives the user extended battery life without sacrificing performance.

Building upon the Satellite laptop PC's solid reputation of quality, several innovative features have been included and are offered on select models:

Built-in FM Tuner: A built-in FM tuner allows users to enjoy their favorite FM radio broadcasts while working on their laptop PC. Face Recognition: The TOSHIBA Face Recognition Technology provides users with a fun and convenient way to log onto their laptops without a traditional password. Sleep-and-Charge USB Ports(2): Popular mobile devices can be charged whether the laptop is powered-on, off or in hibernation mode. eSATA: An eSATA port empowers the high-speed transfer of files between the laptop and an external hard drive with transfer rates that are up to five times faster than USB 2.0. Fusion finish: Each new Satellite laptop sports Toshiba's Fusion™ finish in a Horizon pattern. More than just a graphic element, the Fusion Finish is a unique combination of appearance and texture. Additionally each new Satellite laptop PC 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, with a single remote.

The new Satellite series laptops are available at a variety of major consumer electronics and computer stores nationwide or directly from Toshiba at Detailed product specifications and information can be found at
