If a multimedia laptop is what you seek, a multimedia laptop is what Toshiba shall grant you. The Satellite M500 has almost everything that you would seek from a laptop at a decent price.
For starters, there’s the T6500 Intel Core2Du0 (2.1 GHz clock, 2 MB L2 Cache, 800 MHz FSB) processor powering the Windows Vista system, assisted by 3GB of DDR2 RAM.
The 14.1-inch widescreen LCD display with a native resolution of 1366x768 pixels is ideal for watching HD movies and other videos, all of which can be stored on the 320GB SATA hard disk. And don’t worry about damage to the disk in case the notebook slips – a built-in motion sensor prepares the disk for impacts by constantly monitoring for free-falls, shocks and vibration. In any case, there’s a DVD writer in there for you to back up all your precious data.
The M500 also offers a bit for casual gamers, thanks to its ATI M92XT graphics processor with 256MB of dedicated memory.
For connectivity, the M500 offers 2 USB ports, an eSATA port, HDMI and D-Sub connectors, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1.
There’s also a 5-in-1 memory card reader thrown in, for easier transfer of data to your portable devices. And the multi-touch trackpad just sweetens the deal, offering all those iPhone-esque touch-gestures.
Weighing in at 2.35kgs with its 6-cell battery intact, the M500 can be yours for Rs 53,490, including a 1-year international warranty. For more details, visit Toshiba India.
