Toshiba Netbooks: No Show In the US
If you’re an avid follower of Toshiba, then you should know that the company has already launched its first netbook running on an Intel Atom N2600 Cedar Trail processor earlier this year. But if you’re daily checking if this tiny Toshiba NB510 notebook would passed in the FCC website to be followed by its US release, then you’re probably waiting in vain.
Perhaps you would be surprised knowing that a Toshiba executive has already gave a confirmation regarding the plans of Toshiba America for not offering any new netbooks in the US. As an alternative, the company rather focusing on the production of ultraboks like the Toshiba Portege Z830 which provides almost the same thin and light features but with greater performance than of a usual netbook.
Toshiba isn’t only the company that’s pulled out netbooks in the PCs market recently. Also Lenovo and Dell are finally on the similar game, while Sony and Samsung are still free launching their new built models in the US this year.
However, the ultrabooks of Toshiba would cost a lot more staring at $800 compared with the netbooks which usually offer for $300.
