Toshiba’s Satellite range has long been known for bringing you all the basics for a reasonable price and the latest pair to join the family are no different.
Last year we looked at the Toshiba Satellite A660 and were impressed with its solid performance and excellent multimedia features at an attractive price. Today the company has launched two further models in the range, the Satellite C670 and C670D, with the only difference between the two 17inchers being the processors which power them. The C670 comes with an Intel Core i3 processor while the C670D is powered by an AMD E-Series processor.
Other than what is inside, the two notebooks don’t offer too much in term of specs. The 17.3in LED HD screen is augmented with Toshiba’s TruBrite technology to boost their multimedia credentials. They come with 4GB of DDR3 RAM which is upgradable to 8GB, while storage comes by way of HDD with up to 750GB on offer. Graphics for the C670 are handled by either integrated Intel graphics or dedicated graphics via an Nvidia GeForce 315M. With the C670D you get the AMD Radeon HD 6310 GPU.
Other specs include a pair of USB 2.0 ports, a multi-card reader, double-layer DVD optical drive, a VGA webcam with Toshiba Face Recognition and Windows 7 Home Premium. The two models are due to be available next month in the UK but pricing has yet to be announced but if it was more than the Satellite A660 we’d be very surprised.
