Toshiba launches 512MB flash card

The removable storage card, which is aimed at the reseller market, complements Toshiba's existing line-up of storage devices, which include the 128MB SmartMedia card. The new CompactFlash card uses Toshiba's 0.16 micron technology, which the company has been using since the fourth quarter of 2000, Toshiba said in a statement.

The new card can be used in devices including digital still and video cameras, audio players, PDAs (personal digital assistants) and other devices that currently use CompactFlash cards.

As the popularity of devices such as MP3 players and digital video cameras increases, users want more space to store music, photos and other data, and CompactFlash cards have attracted attention because of their small size.

The 512MB card has a write speed of up to 3.2MBs per second, and a read speed of up to 5.4MBs per second, the company said in a statement.

The CompactFlash card is currently available to resellers, who will use the cards in their own branded devices, for prices starting at $US499 each in manufacturer quantities.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
