its notebook lineup this morning, adding various new models as well as polishing some existing offerings. Most of the new units are standard fare, but a few stand out
: the 3D-capable Satellite A665 and the Optimus-equipped M645.
Packing a 15.6-inch 120Hz display, the A665 can handle stereoscopic 3D via Nvidia's 3D Vision kit and features an Intel Core i7-740QM processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTS 350M graphics chip, 4GB of RAM, a 640GB HDD, a Blu-ray player, and a 12-cell battery. Pricing starts at about $1,600 for the 3D iteration, but if you've already dismissed 3D media as a fad, other A66x-series notebooks start as low as $799.
The 14-inch M645 is a scaled down build of the A665 with a wide range of CPU options, including Core i3, i5 and i7 chips as well as AMD's Phenom II Quad Core processors. It uses Nvidia's Optimus GPU switching technology to auto-toggle between the GeForce 310M or 330M and the IGP. Other specs include a Blu-ray drive, a 7200RPM HDD, and the connectivity we've all come to expect.
The M645 has a base MSRP of $730 and both above-mentioned notebooks are expected to be available through retailers, e-tailers and Toshiba's own online store come June 20.
