Toshiba’s Satellite L Series Laptops Bring the Color

You may not have noticed, but Toshiba unleashed a whole lot of notebooks, large and small, this morning. With screen sizes ranging from 13 to 17 inches and starting prices of $515, the new Satellite L series, in particular, could hit a lot of people’s sweet spots. While Toshiba made some predictable spec upgrades, it also revamped the design, adding a bunch of color combinations in the process.

Check out the details below along with plenty of photos.

The L series includes the 13-inch L635, the 14-inch L645, the 15-inch L655, and the 17-inch L675. While Toshiba has sold 13-, 14-, and 17-inch L series notebooks before, this is the first time it’s selling a 13-inch notebook in this price range. Like other notebooks you’ll see announced today, these have a glossy finish, with a new pattern called Fusion X2. Not only were the notebooks available in red, white, black, and gunmetal gray, but Toshiba is offering interesting color combinations, such as a white notebook with either a black or white keyboard. (The keyboards, by the way, now have an island layout.)

Color isn’t the only thing consumers will be able to choose: the notebooks will also be available with both the latest Intel and AMD processors. The 15- and 17-inch versions, in particular, will be offered with discrete graphics and Blu-ray drives. The machines accept up to 4GB of RAM and will be offered with hard drives ranging in size from 250GB to 500GB.

The L635 starts at $619; the L645, $515; the L655, $569; and the L675, $599. Look for them in stores and on Toshiba’s retail site starting June 20.

    Why does it seem that all systems STILL come with only USB 2.0?
    When will manufacturers make the upgrade to USB 3.0?
    What are they waiting for – it probably only cost an extra $5 to make the change?
