– Toshiba launches new business notebook range –


Sydney, AUSTRALIA – Performance, power and style are the three stand-out features of Toshiba’s new business range of notebooks released in Australia today.


“The new R800 series from Toshiba puts ultra-thin and light technology in the hands of business users across Australia,” said Matt Tumminello, Product Marketing Manager, Toshiba Information Systems Division (ISD).

“This new range is all about providing the latest Toshiba notebook technology that will stand-up to the business mobility test.”


Combining innovative hardware and chip technologies such as the new magnesium chassis and the latest generation Core i7 Duel-Core from Intel, the Toshiba Portégé® R830, Tecra R840 and Tecra R850 offer the ultimate computing experience.


The R800 business notebook series includes a number of key features:


•             Extended battery life up to 10-12 hours

•             The latest and fastest embedded 3G mobile broadband capabilities

•             One-touch Port Replicator and connect up to 4 monitors to the available ports

•             High-speed USB 3.0 port for ultra-fast data transfer of up to 5GB

•             HDMI port and optical disc drive

•             Sophisticated cooling system to optimise heat removal and reduce fan noise

•             Highly resistant magnesium alloy casing (R830) and a new high stiffness resin casing (R840 and R850) to protect electronic and mechanical components


Tumminello continues, “This range features game-changing technology that we believe will enable us to once again redefine mobile computing. The honeycomb structure used in the casing of R800 series is incorporated into the interior which makes the notebooks highly robust. Being resistant to heat, pressure and vibrations mean these devices will stand up to the demands of working out of the office.”


Portégé® R830® | Light in weight, full on power (RRP $1,895-$4,400 inc GST)


The notebook offers fast embedded 3G mobile broadband technology and a responsive experience which allows users to switch between applications with ease. The device is ideally suited for people who multitask. At centre stage is a full-voltage 2nd Generation Intel® Core processor with Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology, enabling each processor core to work on two tasks at once.


At only 18.3mm to 26.6mm thin and weighing between 1.4kg to 1.5kg this notebook offers premium performance.


The unique shock-absorbing design including an ultra-thin magnesium alloy casing with an ultra-resilient honeycomb rib structure makes this notebook highly durable. The special Hard Drive Impact Sensor detects sudden movements and parks the heads of the hard drive before damage occurs – protecting important company data and photos.


To ensure users enjoy the best possible WiFi and 3G signals, Toshiba has created a ‘window’ within the lid that allows uninterrupted signals to pass through, whilst still maintaining the strength, rigidity and appearance of the component.


In case of accidents a spill-resistant keyboard provides time to save work and safely shut down.
