    The Intel 45nm technology produces a processor that generates less heat and provides a faster, more powerful CPU for greater performance in terms of games and productivity applications.

In addition to the latest processors from Intel, the Satellite X205-SLI notebook features NVIDIA's SLI graphics with dual NVIDIA GeForce(R) 8600M GT graphics(1) processing units (GPUs). NVIDIA SLI technology enables two or more graphics cards to work in tandem to boost the overall rendering prowess of the system. NVIDIA's SLI technology enables gaming rigs to deliver unparalleled, lifelike visual effects, as well as lightning-fast and fluid frame rates at high-definition resolutions.

To provide gamers with optimum storage, the Satellite X205 series incorporates dual hard drives totaling a massive 320GB(2) providing ample storage for games and other digital media, such as photos, movies or MP3s. Also, the Satellite X205-SLI4 hard drives spin at a blazing-fast 7200 RPM ensuring that gamers can get right into the thick of action of their favorite games and movies.

Toshiba's Satellite X205-SLI notebooks also include a next-generation HD DVD drive to provide users with an amazing HD viewing experience either at 720p on the built-in high-definition 17-inch diagonal widescreen display or through the built-in HDMI port at 1080i on an external high definition TV.

The convergence of high-definition with the widespread appeal of the DVD format has lead to the creation of the new HD DVD format. While today's DVD format has a maximum playback resolution of 480p, HD DVDs offer an image resolution that is up to six times sharper. Next-generation HD DVDs produce an image that boasts more vibrant color saturation, enhanced details and greater overall image sharpness.

For a limited time, with the purchase of an HD DVD enabled Toshiba Satellite X205 notebook, consumers will qualify to receive five HD DVD titles for free, from a selection of 15 popular titles, via a mail-in offer. Complete offer details are available at http://www.toshibadirect.com/hddvdpc, and the promotion is valid until February 28, 2008.
