Toshiba has released the Satellite C660 Pro laptop aimed at meeting the needs of business users on a budget.
The C660 weighs 2.54Kg, runs Windows 7 Professional and comes with a 15.6in TruBrite LED HD non-reflective display with 1,366 x 768 resolution.
Exact processor specifications are yet to be confirmed, but the device will be capable of housing 4GB of DDR3 RAM. Hard drive capacities will range up to 500GB.
A VGA front-facing camera with face recognition and microphone is also included to allow conference calling.
Other features include a large keyboard with an integrated 10-digit numeric keypad, and a touchpad with multi-touch control.
The laptop comes with two USB 2.0 ports, wireless LAN, Ethernet and a multi-card reader. Pre-installed suites include Microsoft Office Starter 2010 and Nero 9 Essentials.
Toshiba Media Controller is also included, allowing users to stream content to other DLNA-capable devices.
Toshiba's LifeSpace software, meanwhile, integrates with Windows 7 to create a virtual 'Bulletin Board' allowing access to favourite files, reminders, pictures and links.
A ReelTime feature provides a visual timeline of recently accessed files and folders, helping users to access the files they need, quickly and efficiently, the firm claimed.
The laptop comes with a matt black finish that helps to reduce scratches and fingerprints, according to Toshiba.
The C660 Satellite Pro ships at the end of October. Pricing has yet to be confirmed, but is expected to live up to budget label.
