Toshiba refreshes notebook lineup, ships 3D model to US

By on
Toshiba refreshed 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.
