Toshiba P105-S921 notebook

Toshiba is set to launch its first gaming laptop, the Satellite P105-S921 notebook, powered by an Intel Core Duo T2400 (1.83GHz) processor.

The P105-S921 will be the “deluxe” model of the Satellite P105 line that will have two other less tricked-out configurations. Besides the GeForce Go 7900 GS. Sporting a 17-inch TruBrite screen and tipping the scales at 7.2 lbs, it’s clearly a desktop-replacement system. Like the Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV600, the P105-S921 will also employ a funky Dual Mode Touchpad that embeds illuminated icons, which will certainly draw a glance or two. Other highlights include a 160GB hard drive, a DVI-D output port, and a full gig of RAM.

“The satellite P105-S921 meets the demands of customers who want to enjoy the latest computer game releases as well as music, DVDs and other multimedia,” said Jeff Barney, vice president of marketing at Toshiba Digital Products Division. “With its powerful processor and graphics card as well as impressive 17-inch display, this notebook delivers all the performance and features they need in a convenient form factor.”

It’s not exactly the lightest notebook on the market at 7.2 pounds, but with such impressive features, it was never intended to be the most portable or feather-light offering.
