Toshiba launches energy efficient Intel CULV notebooks

Toshiba has announced a pair of new laptops based on Intel CULV power saving technology.

The Satellite T110 and T130 will both sport CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) processors which are efficient enough to provide a battery life of up to 11 hours, Toshiba reckons.

According to Toshiba, users will be able to further “maximise the efficiency of their laptop by adjusting the power settings with Toshiba’s Eco-Utility tool – a software application which allows users to monitor how much energy their laptop is using and reduce the energy consumption by up to 25% in idle mode.”

The notebooks will be stylishly designed and slimline at only 2.2 cm (at the thinnest point), weighing just 1.5 Kg. So you’ll use less energy carrying them, too.

The T110 will be the smaller model, offering an 11.6 inch display, whereas the T130 will have a 13.3 inch screen, both with a resolution of 1366 x 768.

The T110 will come with up to 3GB RAM and a 250GB hard disk, with the T130 offering a slightly more expansive 4GB RAM and up to a 500GB hard drive.

Both models will have integrated wi-fi and a webcam, and an HDMI port to facilitate connection to an HD television.

However, only single core processors are planned for the pair of notebooks, with dual core support being reserved for a variant aimed at the business user: The Satellite Pro T130.

We can expect to see these power-friendly fellows on sale from late October, with prices starting at £429.
