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?
