| Toshiba Launches World's Slimmest, Lightest B5-sized Portable PC -- Only 19.8mm high,1.19kg in weight
30 June, 1998
Tokyo--Toshiba Corporation today reinforced its global leadership in portable computing with the launch of a new series of mold-breaking products for the Japanese domestic market, including the world's slimmest, lightest B5-sized subnotebook computers--and the single fastest subnotebook in the market, with a Pentium Processor with MMXTM technology at 266MHz--and the latest and trimmest model in its Libretto series, running the full Windows operating system.
Toshiba has trail-blazed innovation in portable computing since it created the concept with the world's first laptop PC. Building on an unrivaled record of industry firsts that includes pioneering notebook, subnotebook and mininotebook PCs, the company now adds models to its Portégé and Libretto lineups that pass new milestones in portability and performance. The new computers are sure to buttress Toshiba's number one position in the global portable PC market, and its sixth-place ranking for worldwide shipments of PCs by strengthening Toshiba's offerings in the Japanese marketplace.
All the new PCs will be exhibited at Windows World Expo at Makuhari Messe from July 1. Sales and marketing in Japan will start on July 3.
Portégé 3010 and 3000
The Portégé 3010 incorporates a Pentium processor with MMXTM technology at 266MHz, the fastest processor in any computer in this class, while the Portégé 3000 has a 233MHz processor. Both new PCs bring new brilliance to subnotebooks with 800 600 SVGA TFT displays supporting over 16 million colors. The Portégé 3010 offers 4.3 gigabytes of storage on the slimmest 2.5" hard disk drive in the 4GB-plus class, enough for the most demanding applications and multimedia files. The 3000 offers a 2.1GB hard disk.
The no-compromise design of these advanced PCs extends to their keyboard, the essential interface in assuring ease-of-use, hands-on performance and productivity. Even with their super-slim design, both the Portégé 3010 and 3000 squeeze in true keyboards, with an 18mm pitch from key to key.
All this advanced functionality is achieved in a package only 257mm wide, 199mm deep, and a mere 19.8mm high, the slimmest B5 profile in the market. An overall weight of only about 1.19 kilos with battery complements compact size, thanks to a feather-light 0.7mm injection molded magnesium case.
Libretto SS 1000
