toshiba portege t110 and t130

Look, I understand that companies like to distinguish the US, European, and Asian models of various computers. But usually this is done by adding a letter or two to the end of the model number. In Toshiba’s case, the company is launching its upcoming 11.6 inch and 13.3 inch thin and light laptops with Intel CULV processors under three completely different product lines.

This week the company launched the Toshiba Portege T110 and T130 in Taiwan. The former has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1.3GHz Pentium SU2700 processor, 2G of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, and a 6 cell, 5600mAh battery and ships with Windows 7 Home Premium. The latter has a 13.3 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel screen, a choice of the same processor or a dual core SU4100 CPU, 2GB of RAM, up to 320G hard drive, and the same battery and operating system as the T110.

And if these computers look familiar, that’s because we’ve already seen them introduced. Twice. Earlier this week Toshiba Japan launched the Dynabook MX/33 and MX/43 which look to be pretty much the same systems as these. And last month Toshiba introduced the Satellite T115 and T135 which are, you guessed it, virtually identical to these machines.

Of course, it looks like each variation (if you can call them that) will be available in different parts of the globe at different price points. But Toshiba certainly doesn’t make things easy on tech bloggers with international audiences, does it?

  1. thanks Brad for your hard work. Infact a database of all 11.6 and 12 inch units would be appreciated. Also, many get confused as the are so many culv processors eg SU2700 and SU4100 and even SU 9300. I think a good database on these 11.6 units would be great.
    i think many would move to these processors as the Atom is way too slow for most people.

    In the beginning I could tolerate my Atom but as you install more applications, the unit just crawls.

  2. Can you pls have two sections in your blog, one for Atom netbooks and another for CULV notebooks. It is getting confusing now the number of CULV units coming out. There is Acer 1410/1810, Asus UL20A, the above Toshibas etc etc. Its getting messy now.

    1. I never promised to only cover Intel Atom netbooks on this site. In fact,
      when I first started writing about netbooks the Intel Atom processor hadn’t
      been released yet and netbooks typically cost between $400 and $600.
      Today you can pick up an Intel Atom powered netbook for around $300, but for
      $400 to $600 you can often find a machine that’s about the same weight and
      which gets similar battery life with a faster processor, and 11.6 inch
      (higher resolution display), and other advanced features.

      Are they netbooks? Intel and Microsoft would say no. But I definitely think
      they fit into a similar niche.

      For right now, only 10 inch and smaller netbooks are in the Liliputing
      product database (products.liliputing.com), so if you want to know for
      certain whether a machine falls into the typical definition of a netbook you
      can always check there. I am thinking of expanding the database to include
      models with 12 inch and smaller displays, but you’ll always be able to sort
      the database by screen size.

      1. I would love it if you added models up to 12 in to the database. In fact, last week I went to look for a couple 11 in units and soon realized these weren’t included. (Thanks for the great site, btw.)

  3. you said it …. ask stupid customers different prizes by making them believe there are different models ……

  4. Perhaps fruit flies can tell the difference between kin and strangers;
    But they all look the same to me.

    If you think that tech. bloggers have it rough, just think of the support
    departments around the world when these things need fixing. 😉
