Toshiba is beefing up its Satellite Pro notebook range with MMX Pentium processors, more hard drive capacity and better operating system control. The latest model in the range, introduced last week, is the 480CDT. This features an Intel 233MHz Pentium processor with MMX and a 4Gb hard drive. An optional second hard drive takes the model's storage capacity to over 6Gb. The 480CDT is also ACPI ready. ACPI (advanced configuration and power interface) is a specification developed jointly by Intel, Microsoft and Toshiba. It enables the operating system to control the amount of power given to each device attached to the computer. This means that peripherals, such as a CD-ROM drive, can be turned off when not in use to extend battery life. However, this capability will only be available with the Windows 98 operating system, due next year. The model also boasts a 12.1in TFT colour screen, with a resolution of 600 x 800, and a USB port. A 33.6kbps internal modem is optional. Prices for the Satellite Pro 480CDT start at #2,995. It is available immediately. Toshiba: 01932 828828.
