Toshiba Satellite A660 with Intel Wireless Display Tech Unveiled

by | Go to comments


What could be better than no more nails? No more wires, of course!

Toshiba has made a splash today in announcing a new multimedia laptop, the Toshiba Satellite A660, which will come in a version supporting Intel's Wireless Display technology - also known as WiDi - as well as the company's Resolution+ upscaling technology.

As ever they'll be a variety of versions available, with all utilising one of Intel's Core i3, i5 or i7 processors, Wireless N Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and nVidia dedicated graphics. That is unless you opt for the mooted Intel WiDi enabled version, which due to the technology will only support Intel integrated graphics. You'll also need a separate transmitter box from Netgear, so don't go celebrating just yet - all is not as simple as it sounds.

Also included is Toshiba's Resolution+ upscaling technology, but unlike its TVs and previous Toshiba Qosmio laptops it's not powered by a Cell processor. It's a purely software solution that utilises the CPU and GPU for its purposes.

There's no firm pricing details as yet, but the Satellite A660 will be available from June.

As well as this addition to the Satellite range, Toshiba announced that the Satellite P500 has been updated to include Intel Core i processors and a new 'Blast' design.
