Toshiba, Gateway Show Off Pine Trail Netbooks
CES is nearly upon us and it's an event that brings more product announcements than any other time of year. We're still three days away from the show but the leaks are coming fast and strong; and with the release of Pine Trail still fresh on our minds, it doesn't take a genius to figure out what we're going to see from every company under the sun.
Tech Tree reports that Future Shop Canada has listings for Pine Trail netbooks from Gateway and Toshiba. Gateway's LT2102H will come with Windows 7 Starter and packs the 1.66GHz Atom processor, 160GB HDD, a 10.1-inch display, 1GB of RAM and an Intel GMA 3150 Express graphics chip. Toshiba's NB305 packs similar specs but differs when it comes to storage. The Toshiba machine offers 250GB but costs considerably more. The Gateway LT2102H scans in at $299 CAD ($285 U.S.) while the Toshiba NB305 costs $459 Canadian ($438 U.S).
These two mini-notebooks join a similar offering from HP and will no doubt be followed by a slew of 'us-too' products from other companies at CES. Expect to see copious amounts of Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 too.
