Toshiba is launching its second foray into the netbook space, this time with a mini-laptop sporting a 10.1 inch display.

The company’s Satellite NB100 series of netbooks, which was never released in the US, had smaller 8.9 inch displays and rather cramped keyboards. But the new Toshiba Dynabook UX series has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU, Integrated GMA 950 graphics, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive. It runs Windows XP Home and includes 802.11b/g WiFi.

The Dynabook UX comes in brown or white, and a choice of batteries. Toshiba says the standard battery should last for about 4 hours, while the extended battery could provide up to 10 hours of use.

The new netbook is a bit slimmer than the NB100, measuring 10.4″ x 7.6″ x 1.2″. It weighs less than 2.9 pounds. The Dynabook UX will be available in Japan this Friday for between ¥60,000 to ¥70,000 or about $604 and $705 US. No word on if and when the laptop will be available in the US, but I’d venture a guess that it would sell for considerably less money in the states.

  1. I was amused by The Register’s piece on this, where they wondered how many variations there would be. Well, let’s see, choice of:

    RAM: 1GB, 1GB or enormous 1GB
    HD: 160GB, 160GB or capacious 160GB
    Screen: 10.1″ 1024 x 600, 10.1″ 1024 x 600 or super high detailed 10.1″ 1024 x 600

    Get the idea? 😉

    Whatever happened to real choice?

        1. A famous quote, attributed to Henry Ford –
          “The customer can have any color they want, as long as it is black.”

  2. Yep. Price would have to come down a lot to compete with the Eee 1000HE

  3. I followed the posted link, and then clicked on the “design” link (right side) to the flash video –

    It has a nice looking keyboard – although not “sealed” – a significant gap under the key caps;
    The external of the case is textured – that should deal with “finger print magnet” complaints.

    Too bad the internals come from the “one more of the same” NetBook rubber stamp.
