Toshiba Unveils Budget Touch Notebook, The Satellite NB15T

What would you say to a classy touch enabled notebook at an even classier price? Toshiba, Intel and Microsoft may have just one for your, the newly announced Satellite NB15T.

Toshiba’s Digital Products Division has just unveiled this device that is aimed fairly and squarely at people that are always on the go – in other words, students and travelers.

The full story is over at Engadget which reveals that the device features an 11.6-inch touch display that is, as you may have guessed, optimized to run Windows 8.1. But the affordable device also has some nifty hardware under the hood.

It is powered by the Intel Celeron N2810 dual-core processor. This is the reason why the device comes with such an affordable price, as the new Bay Trail platform promises to offer some impressive features at a great price.

It will not offer earth shattering processing performance, but Navin Shenoy, the Vice President and General Manager of PC Client Group at Intel talked about just how effective this new processor is:

“Our latest Celeron processor offers solid performance and great battery life, while consuming less power.”

Onto the storage side of things, the NB15T offers 500GB of space available, along with 4GB of RAM, meaning there is enough headroom for both work and entertainment, particularly streaming in media.

And the device is just as mobile as it is connected — it includes WiFi connectivity along with Ethernet, USB 3.0 and HDMI ports. Impressively, Toshiba has also found space for an HD webcam.

What is even more impressive is the fact that this new laptop is destined to be priced at around the $378 mark. You will be able to get your hands on it come November.

    I’m sure they could have found a way to make it cheap with going back to Celeron

    I don’t know Celeron laptops have a great battery life.

    WOW! For some, this is going to be very attractive….especially those who still have a Win XP desktop and don’t need high specs and would hardly ever move it from their desk. Purchasing this laptop plus Office 365, this becomes SO economical! It is a real no-brainer!
